New Process for Rapidly Updating National EMS Scope of Practice Model

JEMS - News - Thu, 10/18/2018 - 17:44

As part of an ongoing revision of the National EMS Scope of Practice Model, a group ofexperts convened by the National Association of State EMS Officials, with support from the NHTSA Office of EMS, recently developed and approved a process for quickly updating the Model. The description of the process is available on ems.gov.  

The National EMS Scope of Practice Model was initially published in 2007 and provides guidance to states developing EMS scope of practice laws and regulations. The recent effort to revise the Model included the development of two emergent updates, released in 2017, to address the growing efforts to put naloxone and tourniquets in the hands of more first responders. The fully revised Model is expected to be completed later this year.

The creation of a rapid process for updating the National EMS Scope of Practice Model will improve the EMS profession's ability to adapt and innovate safely as the rate oftechnological and scientific developments continues to increase.

For more information on the National EMS Scope of Practice Model, visit ems.gov/education.html.

Mesa Fire to Outfit All Fire/EMS Crews With Bulletproof Vests

JEMS - News - Thu, 10/18/2018 - 16:13

MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - Body armor is not just for police anymore. Mesa Fire is now putting the bulletproof gear on all of its firefighters.

Mesa City Council approved $262,000 to buy ballistic vests and helmets for all frontline firefighters earlier this month.

In the event of an active shooter, police go into the "hot zone" first.

Fire crews and paramedics typically have to wait a ways away from the scene in the "warm zones" until it's safe before they can go in and rescue victims. In scenes like these, seconds can mean the difference between life and death for victims. Fire departments around the country are training and outfitting their fire/EMS crews to go into "hot zones" with police to not waste precious time helping victims.

Mesa fire says there's also a daily use for bulletproof gear. Even an average call can turn dangerous quickly.
