"Yes, we hear that one frequently."

Ben Abes / Lee County EMS

"Oh, it's a question that we get all the time."

NBC-2'S CHAD OLIVER TOOK THAT GOOD QUESTION TO DIRECTORS OF E-M-S AND FIRE SERVICE. Return to index of stories...


GQ FIRE AND EMS RESPONSE-PLASMA


WE'RE TALKING ABOUT LIMITED RESOURCES -- PAID FOR BY YOUR TAX DOLLARS.

TO GET THIS ANSWER -- I SPENT SEVERAL HOURS WITH CAPE CORAL'S FIRE STATION NUMBER 8.

IT HOUSES *BOTH AN AMBULANCE AND A FIRE ENGINE. Return to index of stories...


GQ FIRE AND EMS RESPONSE-BNR-PKG


LAST YEAR CAPE CORAL'S FIRE DEPARTMENT WENT OUT ON 20-THOUSAND CALLS. *EIGHTY* PERCENT OF THOSE WERE MEDICAL.

No matter what the call is, as long as it's not a bad guy with a gun, we're responding.

FOR THIS N-B-C-2 GOOD QUESTION, THEY SETUP A MOCK EMERGENCY WITH LEE COUNTY E-M-S.

Sir what's going on?

WHY ARE THESE FIREFIGHTERS RESPONDING TO CARDIAC ARREST?

The answer is a lot of times we don't have a full appreciation of

what's going on until we get some eyes on that patient.

EVERY FIREFIGHTER IS DUAL CERTIFIED AS EITHER AN E-M-T OR PARAMEDIC.

So that means I've got to have somebody who's controlling airway.

Got good lung sounds, no gastric sounds.

I've got to have somebody doing chest compressions.

I've got to have a 3rd person who's watching the heart monitor ready

to defibrillate and deliver shock to the heart to get it restarted.

Okay let's get the pads on him.

I've got a 4th person who's watching the intravenous line, the IV.

Let's get him an IV! We'll get him hooked up.

TYPICALLY ONLY TWO PEOPLE WORK OUT OF AN AMBULANCE.

Just think about how many hands it takes to manage a patient in an ER.

*THIS* IS A MOBILE E-R.

Okay let's get him loaded on the stretcher and ready to go.

If it is a critical patient we're going to need additional help.

Can I get some one up here to give me a hand with medications please?

A FIREFIGHTER WILL OFTEN RIDE WITH LEE COUNTY E-M-S TO THE HOSPITAL.

But when it comes down to it, when you really have an emergency, you

need all hands on deck. That's the reason we send a fire engine with the ambulance. Return to index of stories...


GQ FIRE AND EMS RESPONSE-PLASMA, BNR


THAT ALL HANDS ON DECK PHILOSOPHY WORKS BOTH WAYS.

E-M-S ALSO RESPONDS WHEN FIRES CALLS COME IN.

FOR MEDICAL CALLS -- DON'T BE SURPRISED IF YOU SEE A FIRE TRUCK SHOW UP BEFORE AN AMBULANCE.

IT COMES DOWN TO RESOURCES

TAKE CAPE CORAL FOR EXAMPLE.

THERE ARE 6 AMBULANCES AND 16 FIRE TRUCKS.
