EMS Conference

Emergency responders have to think fast and use their resources efficiently. 
The Northwest Region EMS Conference is
teaching paramedics how to be even more productive while out on the job.
Emergency medical professionals are required to reach up to 80 hours of training every two years.
This years conference had sessions that deal with oil and gas emergencies. 
Responders learned more about drilling rig safety, responding to pipeline emergencies, toxic gasses and tank fire awareness.
Diane Witteman says she’s been doing this for twenty-two years and always leaves with a new piece of information that will help her on the job.
(Diane Witteman, North Dakota EMS Association Northwest President) “Gives us a chance to talk to other EMS organizations and stuff to see what their doing, maybe I can do the same thing.” 
Other topics covered were protocols for the workplace, violence and active shooter situations, PTSD, and human trafficking.
