Rigging an Elevated Pulley System from the Ground

During your years in the rescue service, have you ever had to get a single or double sheave pulley system elevated and secured above the ground in order to perform a rescue, when you could not easily reach that elevated spot to place the pulley?

Training for Wilderness Rescue

Imagine if you will, receiving a call for an injured person two miles from a main road who has fallen off of a water fall. The patient is in and out of consciousness and lying on a rock ledge 30 feet above ground. How are you going to access the patient? How are you going to extricate the patient from the area? Who would want to take on this type of call?

Hurricanes and Flooding

(Editor’s Note: We’re glad to have David Pease writing for us again. He will be writing on different subjects and adventures. He was missed.)

In 2016 we were hit by Hurricane Matthew. I missed the deployment on that storm because our team was training the firefighters and rescue folks in Guatemala. I have been on 14 deployments since 1990, the first being Hurricane Fran in 1996. This past year, before a lot of folks could get fully recovered from Matthew, we were hit by Florence. This was another devastating storm, and it will be years before recovery will be complete. My guess is, we may get hit again before that happens.

The President Proposes, the Congress Disposes:

A popular adage in Washington, DC is, “The President proposes, the Congress disposes.” Last week, the President proposed his Fiscal Year 2020 budget outlining the administration’s spending priorities for the coming fiscal year. The release of the budget proposal has become somewhat of a political ritual more so than an essential fiscal function of government. Both sides of the political aisle use the budget for political purposes. But at the end of the day, the budget is just that: a funding proposal. The actual disposal of federal funding is the responsibility of Congress.

Opioid Epidemic

Prior columns have discussed the critical state of the opioid crisis and the EMS use of Naloxone and other harmful reduction strategies. Unfortunately, the opioid crisis is getting worse. This column will focus on the origins of the opioid crisis and something called Medication Assisted Treatment. Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the only evidence based way for people with an opioid use disorder to stay off drugs on a long term basis. EMS should know about MAT since many of their patients might be on MAT. Locally, there also might be ways that local EMS can help their patients get access to MAT.

2019 EMS State of the State

Welcome back to the South Carolina Bureau of EMS and Trauma contribution area of this edition of Carolina Fire Rescue EMS Magazine.

As we go to press we just returned from one of, if not the best, EMS Symposium in a few decades at the ever-accommodating Kingston Plantation in Myrtle Beach. There were a large number of renowned speakers covering a plethora of topics attending this year’s symposium, many of whom had never presented at our conference before.

Urgency for Volunteer Firefighters Reaches Critical State

In every age, wherever people have built communities, the danger of fire has been ever present. Across America, as land becomes towns and towns become cities, people have come together to find ways to protect one another from the hazards that fire and disasters can bring. For centuries, calm summer evenings and quiet wintery nights have been interrupted by the sound of a fire station alarm. And men and women from all walks of life have scrambled to the call, harnessing equipment and mustering courage to rush to the aid of those in need. And in every single community in America, the majority of those men and women are volunteers. Volunteers staffed the first fire companies in the U.S. and not much has changed — except their numbers — which have fallen rapidly over the last several decades.

Firehouse Redesign

This report is based on my visit to the Northland Fire Protection District encompassing the towns of Oaks Village, Laverna, Noghes and Upton stations. Additionally, I spent time at the headquarters building and the apparatus repair shop. The purpose of the visit was to assess the condition of the building inventory. A number of health and safety elements were considered. Diesel exhaust and mold being two prominent concerns. Exhaust capture is the first line of defense in cancer prevention for the fire service. Proper ventilation reduces mold. Adequate fitness facilities at each station is another issue. A fourth area of concern is privacy. All employees should feel comfortable whether they are using a restroom, locker space, showering or sleeping. Further considerations are; age of the buildings, potential maintenance issues, functionality and ADA compliance. Expectations today are that all public areas in a firehouse need to be accessible. That would include the offices, publicly available restrooms and ADA parking space with the dedicated path of travel from the parking area to the exterior door.

Firemen and Contractors

The competitive world we live in today is full of constant demands and the social requirement to stay in touch with one another through various medias. Maintaining your once youthful competitive edge means you must continue to adapt with the technological, economic and social changes your environment faces. If it be adapting your ways to better communicate with your peers, adjust your budgetary means to best fit your new role within the department, or being able to stretch your mind and branch out to use a technology that you aren’t accustomed to using — whichever stage of life you are in, the fact is, we are all competing for the same objective; a better job, a better way of life, a better spot in line, or an easier way of doing things. Your competitive edge has brought you to this point in your career; junior fireman, engineer, captain, chief, or head of board of directors, but is this where you stop?

Leadership Credibility: Do you have it?

Credibility refers to the objective and subjective components of the believability of a source. In the modern fire service credibility has two critical components that cannot really be really faked — trustworthiness and expertise. Both of these are easily faked for a short period of time but they become transparent very quickly.

We Will Never Forget

“We will never forget.” A simple statement conveying an active and perpetual choice to remember those lost, has become an anthem in the public safety community following the events of September 11, 2001. On September 11, 2014, the City of Danville Virginia dedicated a new fire station headquarters rich in symbolism and displays of their local department, the site and the community. The project illustrates how the integration of memorials, museums and historical content within a fire station can foster relationships, tell the story of a department and community, and honor the firefighting profession all while being cost effective.

Chaplains with the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team were in Lee County, Alabama, recently, offering emotional and spiritual care to residents. One particular young resident encouraged them with his heart for others.

He rushed to the hallway, questioning whether he’d survive.

Although Couch often hears tornado warnings, the fifth-grader had never actually witnessed a twister. He had a “real big feeling” this time was different. And it was.​

Essential but Often Overlooked: The Hazmat Safety Officer

As emergency responders, we are all familiar, or should be, with the need for assigning a Safety Officer at all incident scenes. In the context of a small-scale incident such as a two-vehicle accident or a small outside fire, the Incident Commander often inherently performs Safety Officer duties as such duties do not detract from their Incident Commander responsibilities at that scale and scope of incident and due to the fact, that in the Incident Command System if a position is not staffed, the next higher position in the ICS organization is tasked with performing those functions.

THE Question

As a volunteer chaplain for my local fire department, I was having a professionally made picture taken for a special event when the photographer asked me a question, which I was not anticipating, “What is a chaplain?” My response to her was in the context of institutionalize ministry related to the military, hospital or prison chaplaincy. A chaplain is an ordained minister of their denomination plus meeting the requirements, usually educational, for that specific ministry i.e.: military, hospital, prison etc. For an example, to become a military chaplain, one has to be an ordained minister and be endorsed by their denomination. The Army, Navy and Air Force and Bureau of Prisons require the ordained minister to have a Bachelor of Arts, Masters of Divinity Degree and two years of pastoral experience. The same is true for a hospital chaplain but with the addition of two or more Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) units depending upon the hospital’s requirements. Prison chaplaincy requirements are the close to the same as the hospital chaplain but it is dependent upon that specific state’s requirements.
