Welcome to Real Life Rescues, a podcast that goes behind the scenes and takes an in-depth look into the operational and personal accounts of EMS first responders from Israel's largest fully volunteer EMS provider, United Hatzalah. The podcast is hosted by EMT-P (Paramedic) Dov Maisel and EMT-B (EMT) Raphael Poch. Today, we'll be talking about Bystander CPR 2.0, how engaging the community can – and has – revolutionized the speed at which basic CPR is initiated in cases of sudden cardiac arrest across Israel. In this episode, Dov and Raphael will discuss how a small and inexpensive program became a national initiative that resulted in a shift in the number of bystanders willing and able to perform basic CPR during an emergency. We will discuss the “Safe Family” education program that involved community members taking a four-hour basic CPR and family safety course which has led to dozens of recent instances where bystanders became the “first” first responders and initiated near-immediate CPR that resulted in lives being saved.
E164 - Medical First Responder Scenarios, from Shortness of Breath calls to Gunshot wounds. This we went over our last two weeks of training. Groups ran through medical scenarios as their First Responder Teams. Each team ran a Medical call and a Trauma call. We discuss the different dynamics of each time and finding the balance when mixing higher level EMS members into the FR role. We went on to chat about the scope of the Medical First Responder in British Columbia and again, how to blend our higher level EMS members in with the FR scope. WHO WE ARE As a group of Rural Volunteer Firefighters, our Fire Department has built our firefighter training from both old and new tactics in the fire service and adapted them to fit the realities of equipment, manpower, and costs around what our community requires. WHAT WE DO We create video, audio and written word content to share these training and tactics methods with our Brothers and Sisters in our extended fire families, and to showcase to those that may be interested in becoming firefighters the fun you can have and the amazing skills and abilities you get to learn, whilst keeping the lives of the people around you safe! WHY WE SHARE Firefighters are problem solvers whose role requires them to be on their best day whilst others are having their worst day, and while we do not claim to be perfect we are willing to put our lives on the line to try. It's during the trying that we continue to develop the mindset, tactics, and training that allow us to be effective, safe and successful where it's needed the most, and by sharing our experiences we hope that it may help other Fire Departments in creating what works for them to help bring everyone home safe.

Today I interview Christopher Pfingsten, a flight paramedic who has 15 years of experience in EMS. He shares what his role is like, the scope of his practice and the differences between being a flight paramedic and ground paramedic. He opens up about a very tough call that has stayed with him and how he metabolized that experience. Chris is also the co-host of the amazing https://ems-20-20.simplecast.com/ (EMS 20/20 podcast) where he and his co-host Spencer Oliver review calls that were submitted by their colleagues to offer insight into what went well, what could have gone better all in the name of providing invaluable education.

Scott Hewett is back to expand on Rule #45 of his 50 Rules for Senior Firefighters: Your Fire Department Isn't Tinder. In his last episode we left you with this thought:"Workplace romances are not unique to a specific industry. But when it comes to firefighting and EMS: if there is any desire at all to date, or there are stresses in their current relationship at home there is no shortage of men or women around that will play the perfect option and there is ample time to get to know them on a dating level." In this episode we get into the weeds and discuss gender norms and how easy it is for romantic relationships to begin between coworkers (yes even married coworkers) in EMS.Scott Hewlett is a second generation firefighter working in Ontario, Canada! He's done technical rescue, primary care medic, fire training officer and had co-led the Peer support team for the past decade. Scott started the podcast in 2017 providing a conduit for the great people in the departments and beyond to tell their stories.

We're joined by LAFD Firefighter Paramedic Andrew Tom. Andrew was assigned to Rescue 9 with FF/PM Alex Saenz (Ep 49, The Boyd Street Incident) & was trapped in the building on Boyd Street during a BLEVE (Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion) that created a giant blowtorch in the building Andrew was working inside of with Engine 9. What's it like to have conditions turn pitch black in a fire & then hear what sounds like a freight train coming thru? To know you have one way out, & seconds to escape? What goes thru your mind when you don't escape? When your path is blocked? Andrew gives us the full details of every firefighter's nightmare, to be caught in flashover conditions. How did he get stuck? How did he finally escape? How did it feel to know he was alive? What was the scene outside? What happened next? It's a fascinating story from his perspective. He shares his real emotions and the PTSD that followed and how he dealt with it all. You will never forget this episode.
Are you interested in learning to use a marketing tool that doesn't cost a lot of money and can help you find exactly the clients you want to attract? This podcast will give you an insider's view of LinkedIn and a step-by-step outreach plan that you can start to use today. One of the biggest challenges a new LNC faces is learning to successfully market. When the onset of COVID reduced her clinical hours, Amy Puls, an advanced practice nurse practitioner in family medicine, had to build her LNC practice quickly. She formed a clear intention and got to work. One of Amy's first actions was to connect to other LNCs on Facebook and other platforms. She asked for advice, and people were eager to give it to her. Through that willingness to ask, she formed many valuable connections. She focused her attention next on LinkedIn, which she describes as the key to her success. She emphasizes that, while this platform is cost-effective, it does take focus and work. You need to post regularly so that potential clients can get a sense of your expertise. You also need to learn to effectively learn hashtags. Most of all, you need to reach out without being annoying. https://youtu.be/5_XOUZrg8LQ Join me in this episode of Legal Nurse Podcast to learn about LinkedIn Tips and Tricks for LNCs • What kinds of pitfalls can an LNC face in the early days of practice? • How does the power of intention make a difference in your success? • How can networking with other LNCs teach you about marketing? • What are the marketing benefits of LinkedIn for an LNC? • Why is posting regularly on LinkedIn so important? • How can you use hashtags to enhance your presence on LinkedIn? 3 Simple Secrets to Getting Attorneys to Notice, Remember and Hire You – and Not at Substandard Rates a FREE Masterclass with Gerry Foster In this free masterclass, you'll gain concrete tips on how to establish your brand so that you stand out.

Episode 247 is Tracy Moore. Tracy served as a Minneapolis firefighter and captain for more than 20 years. During her career as a fire captain, Tracy earned the Meritorious Service Unit Citation Medal. She was also presented with the Community Service Award. After retiring from the fire department, Tracy became a Flight Attendant, and most recently she has published a novel, "The Fire She Fights" (available on Amazon), highlighting the need for social change and gender equity in the fire service. The novel is based on the true stories of Minneapolis women firefighters, featuring four fictional characters. We discuss Tracy's career, social change within the fire department, and the book.
“If you've got time to lean, then you've got time to clean”. This was a slogan of one of the managers of the first job I ever had, working at a movie theater. I understand that he was dealing with teenagers who wanted to just hang out, watch movies, and snack on popcorn all day, and in that situation he had the right approach. That phrase still haunts me to this day and as a result, when there's downtime at the firehouse, I tend to pick a project and plug in some headphones, listen to a podcast, and get to work. There is NO shortage of projects or cleaning around a firehouse. But even though we may have some downtime at the firehouse, that doesn't mean we have to fill every moment with menial tasks for the sake of being “busy”. Believe it or not, it is OK to take a real break from time to time. And I'm not just talking about while at the firehouse. In today's episode, I will talk about why it's important for us as firefighters and EMS providers to take actual breaks sometimes and I will give you 10 reasons why you should start implementing conscious breaks into your life. -- IGNITEd Firefighter Podcast Facebook Group IGNITEd Readers Book Club --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ignitedff/message
Within EMS, significant time is spent learning high risk, low frequency procedures and the pharmacology and physiology surround these events. In most EMS services consultations or checklist verifications are required in some fashion surrounding these events. Often times, though, we tend to overlook and fail to provide a structure for best practices in how to complete a clear and concise clinical consultation. MCHD District Chief, Ashley Fillmore, joins the podcast to discuss a framework for successful EMS consultations. REFERENCES 1. https://bit.ly/3HEhJXJ

The Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations (EMSO) Cross-Functional Team (CFT) established by Congress a few years ago has been focusing on developing a new EMS Superiority Strategy and a comprehensive implementation plan that is now going into effect across the Department of Defense (DOD). Podcast host Ken Miller sits with Brig. Gen. Darrin Leleux, Deputy Director of the EMSO CFT and Deputy Director for Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations and Space Requirements, Joint Staff (J8). Ken and Brig. Gen. Leleux address gaps in electromagnetic warfare and EMSO capabilities and where we are in the implementation of the strategy. They also share how the entire EMSO community across DOD, the military services, Congress, industry, and academia must work together to ensure the necessary oversight and progress by 2030 to achieve and sustain a military advantage in the EMS.
In this cross-over podcast, we are joined by our team from the Standard of Care Podcast. On 8/22/2021, a Colorado grand jury handed down a 32-count criminal indictment against the police officers and EMS personnel involved in the incident that led to Elijah McClain's death. In this episode of the Standard of Care, Nick and Samantha try to untangle what these indictments could mean for the EMS community. We reach out to our resident experts - former prosecutor (now business lawyer) Chris Timmons and defense attorney (and Samantha's law school classmate) Stephen Coxen – for answers. How do prosecutors even decide to file charges in a case like this? How does a grand jury work? What are the strengths and weaknesses of the prosecution's case, and how does a criminal defense attorney defend a client against these charges? What can EMTs and paramedics do to protect themselves from potential criminal liability? You don't want to miss this episode. So much good stuff!

I attended a Zoom meeting hosted by the FVMA with the presenter Dr Jane Manfredi of Michigan State. The title of her talk was Endocrine Disease And The Equine Athlete. I arrived a few minutes late but from what I could tell, this was a presentation on equine metabolic syndrome (EMS), PPID / Cushing's Disease in horses, insulin resistance / dysregulation and other points. I go over her presentation discussing the good points and, once again, my disappointment that diet is not placed more prominently. Some of the information was old and not current with human investigations. The usual advice is about diagnosing early and getting the horse on an effective treatment based on lab work and flow diagrams. For this, Dr Manfredi did an excellent job. What makes this podcast interesting was her association of EMS with joint pain in horses using data extrapolated from human studies. She also mentions the importance of the proportions of bacteria living in the microbiome of the gut in having the horse be thin, just right or obese. This has been shown in rats as well as humans. Further, Dr Manfredi includes her opinion and studies of using a blend of polyphenols (specifically resveratrol) with a blend of amino acids to reduce general inflammation and specifically joint inflammation (osteoarthritis). What made this point so strong for me was a podcast I had listened to the day before where a legend in the field of human functional medicine had also said how effective adding the polyphenols resveratrol and curcumin were in reducing inflammation. By the way, Wikipedia says there is no evidence of this effect with resveratrol.

We discuss the tragic events that unfolded at the Astroworld Festival 11/5/21 & explain how an incident action plan works, the command post set up, the crowd grid & how the medical assignments work, the chain of command, the kill switch, & how this all has to work together to prevent these tragedies. We talk about how and why crowd crushes and surges happen, including ones that we've experienced as concert goers. We get a lesson on the history of music festivals and raves in LA, & discuss how we had to stop the show at our own rap festival, Camp Flog Gnaw, for 45 minutes during a Post Malone performance to stop the crowd surge. We talk about what could've gone wrong at Astroworld & how this can be prevented in the future, & who bears what responsibility. You also learn how people die in these situations and exactly what a human crush injury is & how it happens.
Welcome to Real Life Rescues, a podcast that goes behind the scenes and takes an in-depth look into the operational and personal accounts of EMS first responders from Israel's largest fully volunteer EMS provider United Hatzalah. The podcast is hosted by EMT-P (Paramedic) Dov Maisel and EMT-B (EMT) Raphael Poch. The world of EMS in Israel has drastically changed in the past 20 years, and United Hatzalah has been at the forefront of technological innovations that have been pushing the field of EMS forward throughout the 21st century. In this episode, we will be discussing some of our more recent large-scale innovations, such as the use of the Carbyne communication and location system; our new Rug Gear communications devices and communications technology that we have built with Widebridge systems and the Israeli Pelephone telecommunications network; and our most recent agreement with City Transformer, which will revolutionize the urban EMS system - utilizing a car-sharing program for first response vehicles that can modulate or transform to less than one meter wide. Due to their modular size, these vehicles are easy to park and drive through traffic and allow first responders who are not motorcyclists to respond to medical emergencies faster.

Today I speak with Jeremy Norton. He grew up in D.C. where he studied literature, writing, and whatnot at Boston-area colleges; taught literature at former-military evangelical prep schools in Chattanooga, TN, then arrived in Minneapolis, MN in the fall of 1994. He joined the Minneapolis Fire Department in 2000 after becoming interested through an old high school friend (Jennifer Cornell) who became a mentor and inspiration. He is currently a Captain on Engine Company 17 in south Mpls. His interest in literature, human nature, cultural studies and the vagaries of human nature provide lenses through which he examines and strives to contextualize the wide range of people and situations emergency response provides him Jeremy has written a book about the EMS (medical) side of firefighting, to be published in the next year by Univ. Minn. Press. It addresses the gutter end of our health care system, the breakdown of our societal understanding of death and dying, the many forms and consequences of denial, race-class-gender issues in the fire service AND in emergency response, as well as the ongoing damages caused by traditional masculinity--both for emergency responders and for the general public.
QIs are not meant to be punitive. The goal of Continuing Quality Improvement is to find parts of the job, policies, and/or protocols that need help.

It's the "controversy" that won't go away. Our third and FINAL vaccine mandate episode covers the last things we didn't cover in the previous episodes. Mainly the deceptive facts and misinformation posted to social media by the top anti vax firefighters group. We explain how this bullshit works, why even though the staffing numbers in these posts may be accurate, they're blamed on the vaccine mandate when the truth is these numbers haven't changed for DECADES. We explain the real reason for these staffing shortages thru the years & show how this type of deceptive posting is actually part of a political media strategy ultimately designed to turn outrage into fundraising dollars. We explain how the goodwill built up over decades by the fire service is being hijacked and torpedoed for this "cause" & this can result in a negative outcome for the image of firefighters as a whole. We also talk about how a lot of these guys were actually friends of Danny & still considered great guys, only to now find themselves separated by this made up controversy. Don't wait for further research on this episode, get it in your system now.

When we think of "first responders" we generally just think of police, fire fighters and EMS workers...and whole all of these men and women are true heroes...there are other heroes we don't always think about....The FIRST First Responders...the people who get the people you need to where they need to go....The 911 dispatchers. But now, the Oxygen Network is debuting a new reality series that focuses on these great men and women who are the voice of calm when things are going wrong. We talked to 911 dispatch supervisor and one of the stars of this new series, Charline Polk all about it!! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, if you fail to plan, then you plan to fail. We have plans when we are approaching fire and EMS scenes. Once we get on scene, we put that plan into action and make adjustments as needed. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Bill Dungey, a guy who's just got his feet wet in the fire service, but is making a big splash. He's personally put together a system of goal-setting and accountability called “The Wedge'' that he's willing to share for free. Take a listen to what he has to say and get some perspective from a guy who is fired up and just getting started! -- The Wedge Mike Dugan: Why Are We Here?

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for November 1st, 2021. If you think it's important, for science and public health and safety reasons, to actually know how this COVID-19 pandemic started, you may as well forget it. U.S. intelligence officials said they can't conclude the origin. They don't know if it was from an animal, they don't know if it was from a lab leak, they don't know if the virus was genetically engineered…nothing. And that's where they'll leave it. The Mayor there says about 91% of New York City's municipal workers are vaccinated as today's mandatory deadline hits, a leap up from 83% Friday. The 9% who haven't will go on unpaid leave starting today, which will create a corresponding shortage of police, fire, and EMS workers. Dramatic reunions at Sydney airport as fully vaccinated Australians were allowed to fly home and stay home for the first time in 583 days. There was a lot to catch up on as countless weddings, funerals, and births had been missed. Wider lockdown restrictions are expected to be lifted for all residents December 1. A health official there says China's latest COVID-19 outbreak is developing rapidly. Authorities are being extra vigilant at ports of entry as infections boom in a northeastern border city. That was caused by the virus arriving from abroad. While the rest of the world figures out how to co-exist with COVID, China is maintaining its zero tolerance policy toward it. Congratulations to the word “Vax,” the Oxford English Dictionary's word of the year. Last year, the company said it was impossible to sum up 2020 in one word. But this year, they say the shorthand for vaccine “injected itself into the bloodstream of the English language. It's clear the language of vaccines is changing how we talk – and think – about public health, community and ourselves.” In the United States cases were down 13%, deaths are down 12%, and hospitalizations are down 17% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending flat since October 25. There are 9,342,326 active cases in the United States. With not all states reporting daily numbers, the five states with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: New Hampshire 34%, Vermont 26%, New Mexico and Maine 20%, and Colorado 17%. The top 10 counties with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: Nome Census Area, AK. Grant, NM. Carbon, UT. Stark, ND. Goshen, WY. Bethel Census Area, AK. Emery, UT. Wabasha, MN. Montezuma, CO. And Inyo, CA. There have been at least 745,805 deaths in the U.S. recorded as Covid-related. The top 3 vaccinating states by percentage of population that's been fully vaccinated: Vermont at 71.2%, Rhode Island at 70.9%, and Connecticut at 70.7%. The bottom 3 vaccinating states are West Virginia unchanged at 41%, Wyoming at 43.9%, and Alabama at 44.7%. The percentage of the U.S. that's been fully vaccinated is 58%. There were only four countries with a 24-hour increase in the number of fully vaccinated people; Ethiopia up 3%, Indonesia 2%, and India and Oceana 1%. Globally, cases were up 8% and deaths were up 8% over 14 days, with the 7-day average trending up since October 15. There are 18,320,240 active cases around the world. The five countries with the most new cases: Russia 40,993. The U.K. 38,009. Turkey 23,948. The United States 19,975. And Ukraine 17,430. There have been at least 4,999,456 deaths reported as Covid-related worldwide.

LAFD veteran Firefighter Alonzo Williams gives us a completely different angle to a story we previously heard in episode 44 (Shots Fired) when LAFD Engineer Kelly Kilmartin told us about a robbery and shooting of Light Force 50 at a structure fire during night one of the 92 LA Riots. Alonzo realized they were actually being shot at before they were robbed at gunpoint, then as they were being robbed at gunpoint their Captain actually refused to hand over their radios at first, and was nearly killed in front of the crew. Then when the decision was made to bail out of there, Alonzo was separated from his crew. A firefighter just off probation, who just escaped a machine gun attack at a structure fire, was now running for his life alone in uniform in South Central LA during the 1st night of the riots with no police in sight and no other firefighters around. Alonzo runs to the nearest fire station to find it empty and locked. He decides to run back to the scene of the shooting, with rocks and bottles being thrown at him and cars gunning their engines toward him if he tries to cross the street. He finally finds his crew hiding in a family's home nearby. This is a wild story that not only captures the insanity of firefighting during major riots, but also the racial undertones and tension of the LAFD in the early 90's as well as LA as a whole. It's also an incredible tale of survival in the craziest circumstances.

On Thursday's Mark Levin Show, Glenn Youngkin has a slight lead in the VA Governor's race, despite the Democrats' best efforts to paint parents as political pawns using racist dog whistles. But don't act complacent, get out and vote. Terry McAuliffe insists that critical race theory isn't being taught in Virginia yet parents continue to find racially divisive books and other questionable curricula that disguise anti-white teachings as social-emotional learning (SEL) and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Then, Herbert Marcuse and Derrick Bell are considered the founding fathers of the modern-day Marxist movement known as critical race theory. Bell argues that direct action is more effective than law and builds upon his own racist dogma while protesting against Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement. Later, candidate for Governor of Virginia, Glenn Youngkin, calls in from the campaign trail to explain how Terry McAuliffe wants to raise taxes and increase government control. Youngkin says that quality education is the number one issue and parents have every right to be involved in their children's learning. Afterward, Democrats want to nationalize everything. The economy isn't growing but if we stay on this course America will become a disastrous third world nation and the media just lies to cover it up. Meanwhile, the Biden Administration is considering a proposal to give $450K per person that was separated at the border in 2018. Finally, Curtis Sliwa candidate for Mayor of New York City joins the show to side with the Police, Firefighters, EMS first responders, and medical staff who will lose their jobs Friday if they don't obey Mayor de Blasio's vaccine mandate.

What happens on the job for one EMS worker is anything but “routine”, its paranormal! Here is a preview of the story. “I've always been a light sleeper and especially had trouble falling asleep on shift, so, past midnight if I ever did sleep it was fitful at best. One night, around 2 am, while I was lying awake at the station, I got a call from the dispatcher asking me to come to the dispatch, which was connected to crew quarters at station 3. When I got there, she was clearly shaken and asked me if there were any other crews there. I said I hadn't seen or heard any. She claimed to have looked up and, through the windows separating dispatch from the hall outside, seen a crew member, in uniform, facing away from her, studying the bulletin board. She had glanced away, not immediately recognizing that anything was out of place, as a crew member being at the main station getting supplies or something was not terribly uncommon even at that time of night. A moment later when, having realized that the crew member in question was neither my partner nor me, when we were the only crew that had checked in at the station in the last few hours, she looked up and the figure was gone. She had not heard him leave, though he would have had to walk right past her window, nor had enough time elapsed for him to sneak past. When I first started working there a few years before, my very first day was a tragic one. One of the employees had committed suicide the night before. Though I had not worked with him, I had done clinical ride-outs with the service during EMT school, and he had been one of my preceptors. Years later the dispatcher, who had not worked there at the time and would not have known this employee, in describing the figure she saw, seemed to be describing the deceased paramedic. Granted this was done from a brief glance at his back, but she got the hair color and the general build just right.” The day after this happened, my son and his family had to go home. I was sitting in my favorite spot outside after they left; it was a beautiful sunny day with no wind - and I'd only been sitting there alone for a few minutes when I saw movement out of the corner of my eye - a beautiful white feather was descending to the ground in a circular movement as in a straight down coil, about 3 feet from me - I looked up - there were no birds. There was no breeze. there were no trees over me. But I saw that feather and I felt good. In my head, I felt the words "thank you."” Watch more at: http://www.realghoststoriesonline.com/ If you have a real ghost story or supernatural event to report, please write into our show or call 1-855-853-4802!
