I. Introduction Long ago, since ancient time humans have been using energy and striving for the betterment of themselves, it all began with the use of tools which led to the discovery of fire, from this great breakthrough, humans evolved exponentially. Eons have passed and humans are still using fire to ease their daily lives from cooking, mobility and electricity, but due to the increase in advancement of technologies, it has also increased damages to the planet, thus the governments had started to move towards a producing or replacing the old harmful substance to a less harmful ones, but since one of the most used and one of the highest cause of ozone depletion is chlorofluorocarbon (CFC), it has been banned from production due to the Montreal Protocol 1991, one of the causes as to why it was banned is one of the chemicals it contain is chlorine, once a certain condition is met it depletes the ozone layer, ergo with earth shield compromised more harmful ultraviolet rays will get into the planet, thus only the reservoir of CFC are being used today, now it’s a race against time to replace this CFC with other materials that is less harmful and either as or more efficient than it. There are not a lot of ways to replace chlorofluorocarbon. Some of the most prominent ones are hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC), hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) and magneto caloric effect (MCE).
For example, on July 29, 2001, six officers were escorting an engine to another area. At one point, the engine exploded, immediately killing three of the officers and severely injuring two to which they died from their wounds. The last officer had also received major injuries, but because he was wearing a bulletproof vest his vital organs were protected, which prevented shrapnel and small bits of metal from injuring him. (policechiefmagazine.org, Sergeant Adrienne Quigly, 10/10/2008) Bulletproof vests have other advantages than just protecting the wearer from bullets, like protecting vital organs and body from projectiles and external

The Parkland Formula for burns was developed by Dr. Charles R. Baxter in 1968, when he realized that burn patients need a massive amount of fluids in the first twenty four hours to remain hemodynamically stable. Dr. Baxter and some other doctors came up with a fast and easy formula. The formula is 4mlxBSA(%)xWeight(kg), there are many examples online or using a smart phone to learn and use this formula. This formula works well in a hospital settings along with many other formulas I have learned about but in the field as a paramedic under a lot of stress dealing with a suaver burn patient it could be difficult to do this formula fast.
