Workplace Fire Safety Training
Description 4.5 hours:
Students learn vital skills they need to protect people, property, and your facility. Live -
action demonstrations of different types of fires and firefighting techniques show
employees what to do and what not to do when confronting fire, including how to size up
a fire, choosing the right device for each kind of fire, and basic steps of extinguisher
operation using the PASS technique.
For the practical part of the course we create a stressful environment and trainees will practice
and memorize the correct response so that they can make good decisions based on their
observations, should the real thing occur. Upon discovery of the fire (Live or simulated fire),
trainees can put their knowledge to the test by:
 RESCUE anyone in immediate danger (if safe to do so)
 Activate the ALARM (alerting by phone and/or pull station)
 CONFINE the fire (close the door)
 EXTINGUISH small controllable fires/or EVACUATE
 Written and Skills test
Employer receive a skills test report as proof of competency, students receive a course completion certificate.
Instruction is based on the procedures in NFPA 10: Portable Fire Extinguishers, the Standard referenced by
OSHA in creating its workplace safety training regulations.

    Advanced Cardiovasculer Life Support is an advanced, instructor-led classroom course that highlights the importance of team dynamics and communication, systems of care and immediate post-cardiac-arrest care. It also covers airway management and related pharmacology. In this course, skills are taught in large, group sessions and small, group learning and testing stations where case-based scenarios are presented.

    • Basic life support skills, including effective chest compressions,
    use of a bag-mask device and use of an (AED)

    • Effective communication as a member and leader of a
    resuscitation team

    • Effective Resuscitation Team Dynamics

    • Key changes in advanced cardiovascular life support, reflecting the 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary
    Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care


    • Management of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and stroke

    • Recognition and early management of peri-arrest conditions such as symptomatic bradycardia

    • Recognition and early management of respiratory and cardiac arrest

    • Related pharmacology

    NAEMT’s Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS) course is the first EMS education program that fully addresses how to best assess and manage the most common medical crises in patients, offering a "think outside the box" methodology.  It is for all levels of practitioners with a strong commitment to patient care, including emergency medical technicians, paramedics, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurse anesthetists and physicians.

    The course emphasizes the use of scene size-up, history, interactive group discussion on potential treatment strategies, and physical exam to systematically rule out and consider possibilities and probabilities in treating patients’ medical crises. The course offers an initial assessment-based approach that progresses to a diagnostic-based approach to quickly develop the best treatment plan. 

    AMLS is a sixteen-hour, two-day program that consists of interactive lectures, teaching and evaluation stations. The interactive/case based lectures include the following topics: altered mental status and neurologic disorders, respiratory dysfunction, shock, cChest discomfort, eEndocrine, metabolic and environmental disorders, abdominal discomfort, iInfectious disease, and toxicologic emergencies, hazardous materials and weapons of mass destruction. Teaching stations follow the associated lectures each day. 

    AMLS is endorsed by the National Association of EMS Physicians (NAEMSP). It is accredited by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS) and is recognized by the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT). Students who successfully complete the AMLS course will receive a certificate of completion that is valid for four years.  

    NAEMT's All Hazards Disaster Response (AHDR) course prepares EMS practitioners at all levels to respond to the many types of disaster scenarios they may encounter – floods, tornadoes, terror attacks, etc.

    This 8-hour course teaches participants how to analyze potential threats in their area, assess available resources, and create a response plan that will save lives. Course Description

    Features of a response plan covered in the course include:

    • Communicating effectively during disasters.
    • Mutual aid and interoperability.
    • Managing resources such as supplies, medications and equipment.
    • Triage and transportation strategies and challenges.
    • Patient tracking and evacuation.

     

    Course Description:
    The Emergency Responder course prepares the EMR student to provide emergency prehospital assessment and care for patients of all ages with a variety of medical conditions and traumatic injuries. Areas of study include an introduction to emergency medical services systems, roles and responsibilities of EMRs, anatomy and physiology, medical emergencies, trauma, and special considerations for working in the prehospital setting.

    Teaching-Learning Methods:
    Teaching-learning methods in this course may include, but are not limited to, assigned readings, presentations, discussion, critical thinking exercises, labs, and class activities. Evaluation procedures include quizzes, written examinations, and assignments.
    Supplemental information to assist in your learning will be posted on Course Compass. Please check Course Compass frequently.

    Course Objectives:
    At the completion of this program you should be able to:
    1. Describe the roles of EMS in the health care system.
    2. Demonstrate the professional attributes expected of EMRs.
    3. Perform the roles and responsibilities of an EMR with regard to personal safety and wellness, as well as the safety of others.
    4. Perform the duties of an EMR with regard for medical-legal and ethical issues, including functioning under medical direction and within the scope of practice.
    5. Apply principles of anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, life-span development, and therapeutic communications to the assessment and management of patients.
    6. Identify the need for and perform immediately life-saving interventions to manage a patient’s airway, breathing, and circulation.
    7. Assess and manage patients of all ages with a variety of complaints, medical conditions, and traumatic injuries.
    8. Apply principles of emergency medical services operations, including considerations in ambulance and air medical transportation, multiple casualty incidents, gaining access to and extricating patients, hazardous materials incidents, and responding to situations involving weapons of mass destruction.

    Course Completion Requirements:
    Successful completion of this course requires adherence to course policies, maintaining a course average of 80 % with a minimum score of 60 % on each in-class examination, a minimum score of 76 % on the course final examination, and successfully demonstrating all required skills.

    Overview:

    The lecture will focus in some of the virtual medicine solutions that are available now, and that are increasingly vital in a world where doctors are in short supply, costs are high and communities lack access to care. It’s becoming more and more difficult to economically maintain the tradition of basing health services solely upon in-person meetings between patients, referring physicians and other members of a care team.

    Speaker presentation:

    Dr. Richard Visser: DC, MPH, PhD. former minister of health and sports in Aruba, he will elaborate on the benefits of this new medical revolution, how it will redefine aspects of our life and how the convergence of technologies will transform the future of healthcare and education.
