Last month, Multnomah County fined ambulance service provider AMR more than $500,000 for slow response times to emergency 911 calls. According to its exclusive contract service with the county, AMR is required to respond to 90% of life-threatening calls within 8 minutes in urban areas. But in August, AMR ambulances were delayed in responding to 14% of emergency calls. The company has appealed the fine and claims the problem is largely due to the county’s staffing requirement of two paramedics per ambulance. In Washington, Clackamas and Clark counties, for example, no such requirement exists, and AMR is able to staff ambulances with one paramedic and an EMT.Meanwhile, there’s a growing shortage of EMTs and paramedics across the nation, including Oregon, which community colleges are helping to address through training courses. Joining us to talk about these issues are Dr. Paul Lewis, deputy health officer for Multnomah County; Randy Lauer, vice president of operations for AMR; and Dave Schapp, EMS programs director at Central Oregon Community College in Bend.
Buzz Lechowski, episode 94, began his fire service journey near his childhood home in Chicago and the northwest suburbs in 1994, becoming an EMT and starting on his fire science degree. Having split time in Arizona during his teens, it didn't take long for him to gravitate back west to Sedona. Attending Yavapai College, he started volunteering with the Sedona Fire District and became a career Firefighter/EMT in 1999. Continuing his education, he became a Paramedic in 2000, completed his bachelor's degree in organizational leadership, and a Master's degree in Communication from Arizona State University. While with Sedona Fire, Buzz has progressed through each rank from Firefighter, to Engineer, Captain, Battalion Chief, and for nearly four years was the Division Chief of Operations. He is currently the Division Chief of EMS. He has served on the Honor Guard, pipe band, peer-support team, charity board, L3690 E-Board, and dozens of RBO committees while with SFD. He has a love for education and teaching, devotes time to several non-profit organizations including the Arizona Burn Foundation, and is passionate about mental health and wellness for himself, his fellow fire service members, and community. Married for 28 years with five children and now one beautiful granddaughter, he has kept busy away from work growing, chasing, and driving his family for 25 years. Buzz has a desire to learn, love, and lead others, helping those he encounters thrive in whatever they endeavor. __________________________ You can find the Fireground Fitness podcast wherever great podcasts are located.

Ep. 51 Joining me is Eric Hofstein who was in law enforcement for 27 years and recently retired in 2021. After working as an EMT, he made the switch to law enforcement working with agencies in CA and FL before becoming a transit officer for BART, The Bay Area Rapid Transit System. We cover two of the most defining moments in his career. The first as a deputy with the Contra Costa Sheriff's Office, responding to the line-of-duty shooting death of California Highway Patrol Officer Kenyon Youngstrom, an incident that, as Eric says, was the final straw for him emotionally and forever changed his desire to be a street cop.The second was his resulting decision to join BART thinking he'd be leaving the stress and trauma of traditional law enforcement behind. That was not at all the case. The job presented unique challenges including reacting to thousands of commuters filling the train platform as often as every three minutes during rush hour, fights and open drug use on subway cars, and more.On top of that, Eric found a world he'd never seen before – people who were homeless, drug addicted, and mentally ill – strewn about and suffering in the subway halls and trains. He could not understand or make sense of it. Why was it happening? We talk about how his thinking gradually shifted from one of judgement to one of empathy; how he became the person who would give everything of himself to try to save every single one of these people – at his own expense and the expense of his family. And how he learned what true “harm reduction” is. It's a story he tells in his book, “What Doesn't Kill You. One Cop's Perspective on Homelessness, Mental Illness and Addiction” which he co-authored with his wife, Mary Beth Haile.We do cover his time in law enforcement working for San Jose PD, Palm Beach Sheriff's Office in Florida, then the Contra Costa Sheriff's Office in California including several very close calls, and that traffic stop, the one where he trusted his sixth sense, that inner voice that saved his life.Also unique to Eric's career was working the jails for five years as a deputy with Contra Costa. He says it was one of the best training grounds for working patrol.We also get into his post-law enforcement career and the challenges of retirement which he writes about in the book. “Everything bubbles up,” as he says. It wasn't until after he was retired that he was diagnosed with complex PTSD. He shares his learnings and insights for others experiencing the same feelings.You can find the book on Amazon both in paperback and Kindle and on Audible. Here is a link to Amazon. “What Doesn't Kill You. One Cop's Perspective on Homelessness, Mental Illness and Addiction.” I want to honor the life, service, commitment and sacrifice of California Highway Patrol Officer Kenyon Youngstrom.E.O.W.

Dr. Michael Swango, also known as Dr. Death, had his residency rescinded after his internship at Ohio State due to patients dying under his care while he was working in an ambulance, and due to his falsification of internship documents. His faculty and peers expressed their concerns, and yet, nobody alerted police or other medical institutions. After working as an EMT for an Illinois ambulance service, several of his colleagues fell ill after consuming food he brought in, or coffee he prepared. Dr. Death was arrested for arsenic poisoning and served five years, but he was still able to work as a resident in New York and Zimbabwe following these incidences. After his rotation at the VA in New York, Special Agent Bruce Sackman set his sights on Swango, leading to his capture. Next week, be sure to listen to my interview with retired Special Agent in Charge, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Office of Inspector General, Criminal Investigation division, Bruce Sackman regarding Dr. Death, as well as several other medical serial killers he has investigated and brought to justice. Bruce is truly a pioneer in investigating medical serial killers, and the investigation and arrest of Michael Swango is just one of many cases Bruce has handled.

HHAUSA continues to be blessed with some amazing additions to our family and this guy fit right in from day one. US Army Veteran Chris Norton was selected as the 2023 A3G Initiative Grant Winner in a story that could only have been written by our Creator.When Aaron Ritter of Limb-Itless Outdoors enthusiastically told me about Norton, it confirmed once again why we do what we do at HHAUSA to impact the lives of others. Losing his lower leg in a motorcycle accident, Chris's life would be changed forever being an amputee and some dark days lay head for the Freehold New Jersey native.In those pivotal moments of our story, they can go one of two ways. Thankfully, Norton pulled himself out of the darkness, going onto become a firefighter and is now just months away from being an EMT as well. He's also found healing, community and new life in archery.During his time recovering, he purchased an entry level compound bow, knowing that he could use a new hobby to get his mind off his injury and get him outdoors. While he had hunted as a kid, archery was new to him and he was hooked. After a discussion with Ritter about saddle hunting, Chris applied for the grant and was unanimously selected by Aaron and his board, all picking Norton without discussing the candidates with each other.After an emotional and overwhelming presentation of the nearly $15,000 in gear at his fire station by Ritter, Chris now had his sights set on a Texas whitetail hunt in late September.I'll let him tell the rest of the story but suffice it to say, we will be seeing a lot more of Chris Norton in the years ahead and I look forward to meeting him face to face and sharing the 3D range with him soon.You can find Chris on Facebook and Instagram and learn more about the A3G Initiative at https://www.limbitlessoutdoors.com/a3g-initiativeFor more information about HHAUSA and how you can support our mission, visit www.hhausa.orgTo purchases HHAUSA hats, shirts, challenge coins and tumblers, visit www.hhasports.com

Natasha Swartley wasn't particularly sporty growing up - and running certainly didn't feature on her to do list. Even after she joined the US Navy at just 18, fitness was a punishment for being 'sarcastic' with push-ups and squats proving particularly unpopular. But Tasha slowly developed a love of fitness and eventually running, ending up being responsible for training 3,000 men under her watch. By 2019, she had completed her first ultra marathon - a 50-miler which she conquered despite neglecting race nutrition and training on a treadmill. Tasha has since left the Navy to become a wilderness EMT, but her love of ultra running has blossomed - despite two DNFs at the 100-mile distance. Running Tales spoke to her about life in the Navy as a high-ranking woman, hauling ammunition across ships and how it prepared her for running long distances, and the power of three little letters: DFQ. --------------------------------
Today, I have the pleasure of bringing to you a gentleman who goes by the name the Angry Viking Therapist. You can find him under Dr. Trevor Wilkins on Instagram. Dr. Trevor Wilkins is a licensed professional clinical counselor and he lives in Kentucky. He specializes in symptoms related to trauma, depression, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder. He works with us, this, this first responder community, the military community, high stress environments. He's been one of us. He was a volunteer firefighter, he was an EMT, and he was a law enforcement officer for 15 years..... including a good stint with Kentucky State Police. He had his own shit go on in his life He switched gears, went back to school, got his master's degree, started his own practice, and then went back to school again and got his doctorate. He is a he's a fascinating individual. He works in what we call Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy. We get into that a little bit. It's a pioneering form of Cognitive Behavior Therapy. It's a little less, I don't know, a little less forgiving in a way.....not as pretty. It forces you to kind of think about your reaction to antecedents and how you can change your reaction to those....and it would change the outcome quite a bit for you. As well as working with rational emotive behavior therapy, he's also specializes in EMDR We've talked about EMDR quite a bit and he, he makes some good points about how he works with the two and how one is more generalized one might be more specific. It was a really good conversation with a fascinating individual. Who I hope to have back on the show and we're going to talk about a few more things because we started to go down a tangent and it's worth exploring. So you guys settle in, listen to Dr. Trevor Wilkins, the Angry Viking Therapist. Go enjoy your Thanksgiving.Enjoy your time with family. Enjoy your time with friends. Enjoy some time off from work, hopefully. And get out there and do something for yourselves.
Pano believes that we earn moxie through putting in the work and paying the price, not instant gratification. As a lover of the outdoors and wild places, he finds opportunities to cultivate moxie and apply the lessons of nature to his life and the lives of those he encounters through his work, teaching, and volunteer commitments.Pano is the director of Emergency Management and Environmental Health and Safety Programs for Western Connecticut State University in Danbury, CT, where he oversaw the University's successful response to the COVID-19 pandemic. He teaches in the University's Department of Biology and the Kathwari Honors Program and is the faculty advisor to the WCSU Adventure Club. If that's not enough, he's a volunteer firefighter for the Woodbury Volunteer Fire Department, a certified EMT, a steadfastly loyal Liverpool FC fan, and a bread baker. He has been an instructor at the Connecticut Fire Academy and the Technology Management program at Central Connecticut State University.Pano's understanding of risk and how to assess and manage it provides a foundation for moving through the world with less worry and more empowerment. He observes that nothing we do in life is 100 percent risk-free–our job is to identify risk, minimize it, and understand that there are some parts of life we can't plan for or control. His time outdoors allows him to hurl expletives into the ruthless ascents of the trail, literal and figurative. But by immersing in forests and canyons, he finds the confidence to know that whatever life throws at him, he has the inner resources and moxie to get through it.This episode of Main Street Moxie is proudly sponsored by Elyse Harney Real Estate and Kindred Property Care.ResourcesEmergency Management – Western Connecticut State UniversityGet Help | Emergency Preparedness | Red CrossReady.govEmergency Preparedness and Response | CDCCommunity Safety Resources - National Safety Council (nsc.org)Support the show
This week I had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with Tammy Featherstone, a friend and long time advocate for all things to do with first responder wellness and empowerment. Tammy is a former EMT, and LEO, that has transitioned into a Trauma informed Life and Wellness Coach for the first responder community, specifically focusing on the needs of our female first responders. The importance of you doing something different if you expect real change to occur was one of many great take-away's for our conversation. Some strategies and techniques were also discussed. Tammy brings us through her "why" and how that has evolved over the years without ever loosing the commitment of care and service to others. Sit back and give this episode a listen and come away better for it, Until next week, take care of yourselves and each other, God Bless, Johnhttp://firstname.lastname@example.org://www.linkedin.com/in/tammyfeatherstone/More about Tammy:Most of my young life was spent showing up other than my true self. I had to be the best, work the hardest, and have the most. I never "needed" anything. Working in the Emergency Medical field and then Law Enforcement, I truly loved giving back to the community. After almost 30 years of service in those areas, I found myself wanting more. I had lost my "why". Two beautiful human beings (a Life and Executive Coach) encouraged me through the difficult task of deciding my future. Without them, I may still be spinning my wheels in a job that no longer aligned with my purpose. Their commitment to me was so powerful. Now I am here, at this very point, and paying it forward. My commitment is to work with women and help them re-imagine and reframe their lives. Through a self-empowerment approach, you will learn to trust and listen to your needs, put them into action and create the life YOU want to live!Thank you for taking the time to give this podcast a listen.

A former EMT/paramedic Bruce Goldfarb is an award-winning journalist whose work has appeared on All Things Considered, the Washington Post, USA Today, American Health, Baltimore magazine, and many other print and online publications. Goldfarb was executive assistant to the Chief Medical Examiner for the State of Maryland from 2012 to 2022. In that role, he was public information officer for the OCME and curator of the Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death.

Episode 91 Curtis reached out to me a while ago. He was in a bad spot and he wanted information. He wanted to know how he could get help if he was in a department that's not union and he wanted to get into the Center of Excellence. He didn't know how to do that and he and I went back and forth. He also went back and forth with the guys from Next Rung who run an amazing program there. If you haven't heard of them, go check them out. They do amazing work. He and I went back and forth and I just off ered some support when I could and, and some guidance when I could. Luckily it worked out for him. He found his way into the Center of Excellence as you'll hear in the show. A little background on Curtis. He's 16 years in the fire service between EMT and actual fire. He sent me a note and he said he thought he could run from the anger. However, it followed him wherever he went. He had to see he was in trouble and he didn't do that until it was almost too late for him. As a number of my guests have said, he just hopes that one person could get something out of this show, out of the podcast, out of his story.

Show Notes:**Rate & Review Behind the Line on Apple Podcast – here ** I recently had a listener reach out and share about an experience where she was sharing that she had suffered a hard critical incident to a close friend, and the friends response was, “well, that's what you signed up for.” …And my response may not have been all the therapeutic, helpful, responsive pieces it could/would/should have been…it may have sounded more like, “just go fuck right off”. Admittedly, perhaps not my kindest response…but not without some reasons, and I'm sharing them with you today. If you have ever had this response of “this is what you signed up for” as a way of blowing off the validity and significance of what you have faced – this episode is for you. Not only is it for you, it is also for you to share with the ones you love so they know why that line is NOT ok and why it puts you at RISK. This is probably one of my more rant-y episodes ever, and I will frontload that I swear, so be mindful of listening with child ears present.

Kristof Morrow - Navy veteran, Journalist, and Author - Living and writing with a disabilityI'm a veteran, author, and journalist that's sold more than 1200 copies of my debut book, “The Second Sun,” after going viral on TikTok in June.Growing up, I was the third born but the first to graduate high school. I was viciously abused by my parents. They both have suffered from some form of addiction.I taught myself to write while serving in the US Navy as a Corpsman right after high school, and after leaving, I learned a University education wasnt for me, despite winning the highest award for short fiction and poetry at two different colleges in their annual creative writing contests. While living in Louisiana, I was hired by a film director to help complete his script and got to work on a film set. I became an EMT around the age of 23, then a 911 dispatcher at 26 before earning, by audition, a job at a newspaper. At this point, I was 27 years old and won awards from two Texas Press Associations for feature writing and photography. Amidst this time and in earlier years, I would exchange letters with Pulitzer Prize winning writer Robert Olen Butler. I later became sober from alcohol, as my Tourette's manifested in a way I could no longer ignore and I spent five years battling worsening symptoms and not writing a word.Several dozen times a day, my ticks force me to slap, punch, and claw myself in the face. It makes me call myself names very loudly that I won't write here, I say I hate myself, and I'm often laughed at in public, (however, it's not malicious) additionally, I've lost much of the feeling in my right hand from chronic swelling and impact injuries, as it compels me to punch hard surfaces around me. I'm currently wearing bandages and tape on two fingers, and a thumb brace from an injury resulting from just that. On October 16, 2021, I surrendered that fight and began writing once more. In February of this year, I published my first book!https://www.amazon.com/Second-Sun-Volumes-II-ebook/dp/B0BW7GF5SY/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?crid=1TENPLLLJ24ZO&keywords=kristof+morrow&qid=1698173717&sprefix=%2Caps%2C106&sr=8-1https://www.instagram.com/kristofmorrow/https://www.tiktok.com/@kristofmorrow

This episode of Inside EMS is brought to you by Lexipol, the experts in policy, training, wellness support and grants assistance for first responders and government leaders. To learn more, visit lexipol.com. In this episode of Inside EMS, hosts Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson discuss an incident that sparked fierce debate within the EMS community. The incident in question occurred on October 27, 2023, when a Washington, D.C., firefighter/EMT was dismissed for stopping at a Chick-fil-A before responding to an ALS call. The hosts discuss the ethical implications of this decision, emphasizing the duty to act in emergency services. Cebollero and Grayson, while acknowledging the challenging landscape of working in EMS, stressed that personal needs and comfort should never compromise the responsibility to respond to emergencies. They shared personal experiences of missing meals due to service calls. The hosts stress how the duty to act commitment to help others should always outweigh personal needs in emergency services. The discussion also centered on the commendable actions of D.C. Fire and EMS in addressing the incident. Grayson was firm in his belief that the action taken by the D.C. firefighter/EMT was unequivocally unethical and damaging to the public trust. The hosts underscored the importance of upholding the greatest standards of ethics and responsibility, even when not in the public eye. Memorable quotes "Ethics are how you behave when no one is looking. There's not a whole lot of gray area in ethical situations." — Kelly Grayson "The whole point of 911 and the honor of what we do is, you call, we come: no question." — Kelly Grayson "I can't count the number of times I have been waiting in line for food and I've been dispatched to a call. I've had to get out of line. I've had to lose my money. I didn't get a chance to eat that day." — Chris Cebollero "We have a duty to act. We have to be able to respond as we need to respond, regardless of our own personal needs." — Chris Cebollero Read next: Duty to act, assess, treat and transport.

Dogs are the best kind of teachers because they teach us just by being themselves. Wilson describes the undiluted love of a dog when we come home after an absence, “You can have a stressful day but having a dog greet you just changes everything.” Dog and cat companions have much to teach us if we take the time to pay attention and open ourselves enough to listen and learn.

In this episode of The Real ResQ, Jeremy Bersin joins the show. Bersin previously worked in emergency medical services (EMS) and is currently with emergency disaster response. At a young age, Bersin started working in the hospital, seeing and experiencing the medical world. When he went through his emergency medical technician (EMT) course, he fell in love with the job. Bersin tells us of a few memorable callouts while he was working in Hartford, Connecticut. His first call was for an elderly woman who went into a full cardiac arrest. Next, we talk about a man who was more than just stabbed across his abdomen. Bersin tells another great story of when the ambulance was stuck in the mud. We talk a little more about working in your hometown, and having to see and care for people you know. From Hartford, our conversation transitions to his work in Boston. We talk a little bit about the Boston Marathon bombing and how he and his team assisted behind the scenes and for weeks after the incident. He is also reminded of and tells us about a drive-by shooting he was called to. We finish our conversation with what he is doing now with emergency disaster response. From helping a few people that have been displaced due to a home fire to a full-on hurricane relief effort, the stories are incredible.

On this West Virginia Morning, the dire shortage of EMT's and paramedics across West Virginia is now trending in a positive direction. Randy Yohe spoke with Jody Ratliff, director of the State Office of Emergency Medical Services, on meeting the challenges facing those who come to our aid.

Welcome to the world of the EMT, a world that in its own way reproduces the complex conditions of an ER—but without the safety net of a large institution. Valerie Creel, a registered nurse and LNC, who also worked for several years as an EMT, shares with you what goes on in an ambulance, both from the perspective of a team member and also the possible malpractice errors that can occur with ambulance transport risks. Although EMTs receive extensive training, Valerie says that only field experience can teach a person what needs to be done. One potential liability incident occurs when someone, having called 911, refuses to get into the ambulance. He may later change his mind and try to sue. Ambulances may get into collisions with other vehicles, another fraught situation. In addition, if all pieces of equipment aren't well secured, other risks occur. LNCs need to be aware that their attorney clients may not provide EMT or ambulance records or that sometimes more than one ambulance becomes involved. Whether the patient is delivered to a hospital that can meet his or her needs may be a liability issue. You will probably get involved in an ambulance-related lawsuit at some point in your LNC career. Valerie's detailed description of what goes on in the world of the EMT provides invaluable information.

Roman shares what led him to coaching and his own personal experience with parental alienation when his wife unexpectedly vanished with their two sons. He discusses how he has been compromising for years with his ex-wife to ensure he remains a steadfast presence in his kids life and how that has been beneficial to him. If you or anybody else you know has experienced parental alienation, you know how painful it can be. That is why Roman has dedicated his life to helping others who are going through the same thing he went through.Roman Garcia is a certified life coach who works with parents experiencing Parental Alienation. He has spent most of his professional life as a first responder. He's also been a ski patroller, EMT, Fire Fighter and FBI Special Agent.

What if the biggest heroes in our society, first responders, are also the ones silently suffering? Imagine being a police officer, firefighter, ER staff, military personnel, or any first responder, tasked with the wellbeing of others, but grappling with your own issues such as grueling work hours, balancing work and family life, and the potential accumulation of trauma. We step into their shoes, unearthing the challenges they face and the resilience they display. From personal stories of emergency situations to the illuminating discussions on the need for specialized resources, we aim to shed light on the often unseen side of their lives and bring attention to the much-needed support.With first responders, they carry tales of adventure, tales of courage, but often these stories are shrouded by a cloak of confidentiality, making their socialization a complex process. In this candid conversation, we accentuate the vital importance of a support system that allows them to share their experiences, and the need to recognize their individual capabilities. Looking forward to my dialogue with Liz Kelly in the upcoming episode, we will be navigating through various topics such as holidays, stress, mood disorders, and more. This intimate exploration invites you to glimpse beyond the uniform and into the hearts and minds of our first responders.YouTube Channel For The PodcastCoaching Program
