In this modern age, it's remarkable that after more than a half-century survival from cardiac arrest have shown minimal improvement. However, in some cutting-edge cities, survival rates exceed the national average, leading us to reevaluate what is necessary to improve outcomes. From adopting new technologies that enhance blood flow in the prehospital setting, to implementing resuscitative protocols, including extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), we must be open to new ideas when tackling cardiac arrest. To make progress in a field that has been seemingly stagnate, progressive programs may finally move the needle on survival rates while also creating best practices for future resuscitation initiatives.
Reduction of firefighter injury and death continues to be an initiative of the fire service. The ability to provide progressive, aggressive, and responsive firefighting and rescue services is desired but is often complicated by the “safety first culture” that has overtaken the fire service over the past decade. As the fire service moves to a safety first culture--i.e., no breathing apparatus in the cab of fire trucks, clean cabs, carcinogen reduction measures, and transitional fire attack models (SLICERS/DICERS)--the ability of competent fire officers and firefighters to make aggressive and progressive critical decisions that place firefighters into difficult environments while citizens’ lives are on the line is curtailed. Furthermore, at times, this new culture is preventing firefighters from engaging in, and learning how to engage in, critical incidents; thus, firefighters are more prone to injuries and death when engaging in these critical incidents. This class will dissect the “safety first culture” and demonstrate the need to find the happy medium between safety and performance.
Corbett uses his far-reaching expertise on building codes, fire behavior, and other aspects of construction to examine the dangers fire departments face when responding to modern structures made of lightweight building materials.
This class from Amy Hanifan takes a different approach in teaching those already in officer roles how to prepare future company officers. The focus is on professional qualifications, training priorities, and mentoring.
