For our weekly training on Monday the 27th of July, we prepared various EMS Stations for the members to rotate through. Station 1: Kent County EMS- Members had a review of ALS gear & equipment, including the newest response vehicle added to the Public Safety Fleet. Station 2: Delaware State Police- All to often Law Enforcement Officers place themselves in harm’s way for others. Unfortunately, in many events officers find themselves, or another officer gravely injured. Objective: For EMS / FIRE Personnel to understand the basics of a law enforcement officers vehicle and uniform. - How to remove an officer from the police car if injured in a MVC. - How to remove the officer’s gun belt: If no officer present on scene- where do you secure the gun belt - How to remove the officers bullet proof vest We also reviewed: Tips for entering scenes that may seem suspicious: 1. Vague calls such as: man down, unknown problem- person may be down due to acts of violence 2. Patients, family members, bystanders , pets can turn on you very quickly 3. How to position yourself when entering your house- stand to the side of doors when knocking 4. The feeling that something isn’t right is a warning 5. Always take a portable radio with you- NEVER know when you will need it. Station 3: Zoll Auto Pulse- : The only device of its kind, the ZOLL® AutoPulse® is a revolutionary non-invasive cardiac support pump that moves more blood, more consistently than is possible with human hands. AutoPulse also minimizes no-flow time. It allows rescuers to provide compressions while performing other life-saving activities, or while transporting a victim down the stairs or in the back of a moving ambulance.
