  2. Eck, good luck.
  3. I work at Southwest CMED (lower Fairfield County, Ct) and when a hospital calls in for a diversion (general, psych, trauma, CT scan or cardiac) to us we: tone an announcement over proper Medical Channels for that area including surrounding hospitals, call the local commercial services (AMR, Nelson, Access), call the neighboring CMED (South Central). When units responding to calls sign on with us we once again remind them of the diversion. The units can call in for medical direction for patient destination for any questions to the hospital through us. When the hospital goess off diversion, we repeat the same notifications.
  4. It's a combination of where I work and my employee number (SouthWest Emergency Medical Communications Center 70, a.ka. SW-CMED).
  5. I work in Southwest CMED in the lower portion of Fairfield County. Medical Control notifications/requests can be made first over one of our dedicated frequencies to the various hospitals in our area. If for some reason the unit in the field is in a bad area they are told to call into our center and we can phone patch them to the hospital. We try to get the units to go directly through us, do to the fact that all phone lines and radio channels are taped in the center. This way if something ever happens with the call later on, a request can be made by the agency in question to have our boss pull the tape and make a copy of it for review. If a unit in the field calls directly to the hospital, there's no way to retrieve the calls conversation. We can advise the hospital if requested by a unit in the field to give them a heads up of what's happening on a call and that the unit would contact them shortly. We are not allowed to take orders from the doctor at the hospital and then to give them to the unit in the field. This is more to protect us in case we hear something and relay it incorrectly.
  6. Sunday December 24th 1500 - 2300 Monday December 25th 1100 - 1900 (something like triple time?)
  7. Nice job again.
  8. What can I say. I just watched the video with the music score added to it and I am truely impressed. I can see, that all involved have taken alot of time to plan it and get it working just right. I now have to come and see it in person. Again, let me say great job and have a safe holiday and a successful toy drive.
  9. Attend his presentation a few years ago at the FDIC in Indianapolis (it was one of the presentations that you needed to arrive early because it ends up standing room only). Well put together with lots of different material for illustration. It's a presentation that's worth attending.
  10. Matt, another good job.
  11. How about adding a picture of you at the pump from the burn last weeked. You sure deserve a smack to the back of the head.
