Winter Wonderland?

"Medic 6 respond to a report of a child who fell through the ice on Stevens Pond."  "Rescue 9 be advised that bystanders have pulled a cross-country skier from the river and have started CPR."  These are but a few of the EMS calls we may have to answer during these winter months.

The Ohio Department of Public Safety Division of EMS urges you and your medical director to review all cold weather protocols and prepare for these and other winter emergencies.  From frostbite to cold water drowning, your preparation and delivery of professional care during these critical moments can positively affect outcomes in many of these patients.  Throughout this winter season, stay warm, stay safe, and thank you for your service and dedication to Ohio’s EMS system.

#GMVEMSC: Modem Update

I wanted to provide an update to those who completed the survey to participate in the modem upgrade program for LIFEPAK monitors.  The modem purchase was approved by the hospitals last week and the purchase order was provided to Pete Landry with Stryker.   Pete stated each department will receive an email requesting information and that needs completed and emailed back.  The quicker you get this accomplished, the quicker you will get your modem.  He stated if you are prompt in returning the requested information, you should you receive your modem around mid January.  There will mostly likely be no change in 3G service for your current modem coverage though the first quarter of 2020.  Please be prompt in getting the needed information back, so you can ensure you get the 4G modem prior to any service interruptions.  If you have any questions please let me know.

 

Thanks

#GMVEMSC: NFA EFO Survey-Behavioral Health Awareness

 

I am hoping that you will click the link below and take a survey that should take less than 3 minutes.  This survey will become part of an Applied Research Project (ARP) and will provide valuable feedback about how our first responders may regard behavioral/mental health awareness within their department and help identify ways that it might be improved. The applied research is part of the National Fire Academy’s Executive Fire Officer Program.  This program prompts fire service leaders to investigate key issues important to the fire/ems profession and to seek solutions to those problems through research.  This survey is anonymous and voluntary. I would appreciate your help!
