As always, please keep in mind that the on duty crew has priority on all calls and/or transports that may come in on their duty night
  The only exception to leaving without the on duty crew is a cardiac arrest, respiratory arrest, or an active choking patient.  If you are the driver or crew chief on a crew, it is your responsibility to find coverage should you be unable to respond.  Remember, the community is counting on you to be there for them.

Chief's Notes:

Same story as to the role and responsibilities of the Crew Chief. While we do not have a written definition or job description of a Crew Chief, we do have some guideline for a Crew Chief. A Crew Chief is:

  • Responsible for all activities and well being of their crew when on an emergency call.
  • Responsible for operations and equipment on the rig during their shift.
  • Responsible for supplies and restocking of supplies used during their shift.
  • Responsible for completing all necessary paperwork involved during their shift.
  • Responsible for reporting all remarkable incidents to the Chief or Deputy Chief.

As I stated, these are guidelines. Does this mean the Crew Chief actually does all this work? Absolutely not. . It means they are responsible for making sure all tasks get completed, on time. The person who provides patient care is responsible for completing the trip sheet. The Crew Chief will review the trips sheet for accuracy and completeness but will not do the trip sheet. Remember, the call does not end when we pull the rig into the station. We need to re-stock, clean as necessary and, of course, do the paperwork. Please assist with this part of the call as you would patient care. Its all part and parcel of being an EMT. Not too much fun, but it goes with the territory.

There is plenty of new EMS gear in the office. Please make sure you are "geared up"!

Remember, gear up for all calls. Your protection is your Number One priority. We do not need another victim! If you need protective footwear, read, no sneakers. see Wilmer Good. Goods Store is a Rocky Boot dealer and Rocky carries some of the best boots in the business. If you do not have an equipment bag, see Chris.
