    AMR Riverside Strike!

    Good discussion, but keep it civil.

    Surge equipment & vehicle

    Also keep in mind what gap you're trying to fill and something often overlooked, what timeframe-gap are you trying to fill? Having inflatable rooms with generators and a/c/heater units is awesome, but if it's going to take 45 minutes to arrive on site, and realistically an hour or more to set...

    What makes a bystander helpful/unhelpful?

    THIS! "Hey thanks, yes. Can you help move all these people about twenty feet that way, and help keep them over there? Thanks!" Which also means that that particular individual is now also twenty feet away. 😎

    I can't believe our little one is three months old. Three months! It's insane.

    DUI Driver hits 9 people in Fullerton CA, how does a bystander respond?

    My team goes out and teaches courses like Active Bystander Training and You Are The Help Until Help Arrives, which helps individuals go from being a Passive Bystander to an Active Bystander. They show the importance of taking action, whether it's just calling 911 or providing care, and how it...

    @MMiz is still fine tuning the chat. It's completely new so old settings didn't transfer over.

    You can blame me. Getting older. Eye sight is starting to go.

    Gone temporarily. (hopefully) The new version of Xenforo, which is the platform the site uses, has completely different coding, so the old chat room no longer works.

    That one may be a bit to fix/replace. The new version of Xenforo is completely different code than before, so the old room no longer works. We'll look into replacing it.

    When I took on my current position I told myself I would write one. Eighteen months later, I haven't written a single word. I'm way too busy doing my job to write about it.

    911 bystanders bill

    I want to know what county/city/town this is from. You can PM if you'd like. I can quickly confirm or deny this. Stop. Just stop. There's no way this is logistically possible. Who would get the money? The cell service provider? The 911 center? The responding department? What about if multiple...

    FEMA National Ambulance Contract

    AMR was deployed to my shelter in Florida in mid October. In addition to an actual AMR ambulance, a couple of older, (I think they were) private ambulances were in the parking lot as well. All had FEMA signage in their window. So I guess they were subcontractors. Note: I was part of the...
