Rescue Medics!
« on: July 15, 2008, 04:04:24 PM »
Are these new Rescue Medic Ambulances assigned to specific EMS Battalions and still respond as a normal ALS unit when not assigned to 10-60's. Or are these Rescue Medics assigned to EMSSOC and have no assigned area and roam the city. Basically, how do they respond and where are they assigned.

They have a normal CSL "Cross Street Location" and are assigned to an EMS Battalion. They respond on normal ALS jobs in thier 1st due area and then cover the boro for rescue jobs.  They are also HAZTAC trained.

 There is no EMS SOC, only EMS HazTac Operations, which covers HazTac 1 and 2.

Thanks for the info.

What special rescue equipment do they carry with them on their bus, And do they have any advanced protocols that they can do on a patient such as a crush syndrome or Field amputation

They can do crush syndrome and stuff like that.  I don't think they can do the ampuatation, I would have to see if the Doc's can do it.  There are two FDNY doctors who are USAR/Rescue trained.

I'll put it to you this way-Rescue Medics are trained by SOC.  They are trained just like a Rescue Co. except the ability to fight fires

Some pics of one of the rescue ambulances, with compartment pics and special equipment pics would be great.

FDNY deploys 36 Haz-Tac ambulances (15 BLS, 16 ALS, 5 ALS-Rescue).  Rescue ambulance personnel are qualified in Confined Space and Collapse Rescue (40 hours each), Confined Space Medicine and Crush Medicine Syndrome (24 hours), Trench Rescue (20 hours) and High-Angle Rescue (20 hours).  Personnel are rated as Hazmat Technicians II.  SOC personnel receive 40 hours Trench and 80 hours High-Angle training, as well as Collapse and Confined Space training, and are qualified as Rescue Technicians II and Hazmat Technicians II.

FDNY Haz-Tac ambulances are 36-inch longer than the basic Ford F-350 ambulance and have a full-width compartment added between cab and ambulance body on a Ford F-450 chassis.

Haz-Tac rescue ambulances have, in addition to their hazmat equipment, rescue helmets and harnesses, rescue medical bags, and have a basic metering capability.

FDNY just put out a memo, got another grant so they will be adding more Rescue Medics.  No word one what they will do, but they are putting together a class for medics to goto Rescue school.

It's my understanding that Local2507 did make some form of deal to give Haztac and Rescue the 12%.

aloha, what are there duties once they arrive on scene? do rescue medics ever help in conducting searches, or help the FAST CO in operations or do they standby and wait to be called in, particually on 10-60s. thanks
