- Opioid Crisis: Protecting our First Responders
The increased availability of synthetic opioids coupled with the heroin epidemic has not only led to a significant increase in overdoses and deaths, but also an increased risk to first responders who must come into contact with these substances during the course of their duties. Exposure to small amounts, the size of a grain of sand, can lead to respiratory depression and even death. Proper identification and knowledge of the various opioids, signs and symptoms of exposure, and immediate life-saving measures to be employed in the event of exposure are critical to saving the life of yourself or others. Additionally, the likelihood of first responder exposure requires the implementation of universal precautions including but not limited to personal protective equipment (PPE), Narcan training, and specific procedures for testing of suspected substances.
- Emergency Vehicle Driving Techniques
This course introduces the student to actually operating an emergency vehicle under emergency response conditions. A number of important factors will be discussed, including the Driver Operators Capabilities, Safety and Adverse Driving Conditions, Basic Emergency Driving Maneuvers, and Crash Factors. The final segments of the course will draw the students attention to some fairly new concepts such as Due Regard, True Emergencies, Defensive Offensive Driving, S.I.P.D.E. and Aiming High. Although some of these concepts might sound strange, the student will appreciate the value of each of these concepts as they relate to the safe operation of all types of emergency vehicles.
