With the end of winter and the coming of spring the dive team steps up its training. Not just dive training but as members of the dive team we’re also members of the first aid squad too and do help out answering first aid calls when it gets busy.
This last week end was emergency vehicle operations, it reviewed how we get dispatched, the information needed to be put down on the call board, special equipment we may need for a call (epi-pens, the lucas, or co2 monitor) or which vehicle goes to which call, radio procedures was also covered.
All of this was done in the class room and then it was out to the ambulance bays to go through the ambulances to learn where everything is and how thing works
Many thanks to captain B Schliep and 2nd lieutenant T Conroy for putting together this drill and takeing the time to run the dive team through all the things we need to get the job done.
