Paramedic Response Program
« on: October 13, 2018, 09:56:29 PM »
Can anyone provide some information about the new Paramedic Response Unit's?


Main Questions:

1) How many units are there & what call-sign/Unit numbers do they have?
2) What do they respond to?
3) What rank is the paramedic?


Thanks.

Thats not the point of the SSL rig plus there is nobody trained to Paramedic level in Trucks & most have enough fire & emergency responses.....beef up the EMS side.

I'm not looking to hijack the thread here. Chief you are 100% correct in stating "beef up EMS." However, in order to do that salaries and working conditions have to be raised. I'll shut up now or I'll go on forever. ;D

MMMMM...  Ice water cooler!

I remember some time spent at the Nevada Test Site.  We were running some underground nuclear tests in the summer -- 115 in the shade (whereever THAT was!_) and two layers of anti-C clothing and SCBA looking for leaks in the earth.

Water, water....

^^^^ The BN Rigs now are overkill.....giving them something like the PRU pictured would be even worse overkill.....a waste.
