A fair amount of confusion shrouds the AEL and the SEL—what these two lists are and what their combined purpose is. First, neither of these equipment lists are composed of commercially available products. Instead, they’re similar lists of generic product types, so you won’t find a specific product on them, such as the Masimo Rad-57 Pulse CO-Oximeter. What you’ll find is entry number 09ME-03-BCNI, a Non-Invasive Blood Chemistry Monitor. Beyond that, what you find will depend on which list you’re reviewing.

Christmas is over with, thank goodness. No more seductive booze commercials, no more beautiful old songs butchered by howling gospel singers and no more stupid new movies about Santa. Time for a nice rest before I start on my taxes. Whoopee.Rudy had a red nose, all right. But the Rudy in our town was no reindeer. He was a drunk, and when he didn't have a snootful, he was real cranky.

I had a front row seat at the Australian College of Ambulance Professionals' Simulation Challenge held in Queensland, Australia, in September and watched as several teams performed in a myopic manner, focused on the high-priority patients and ignoring a patient with minor injuries who knew vital patient information about one of the more critically injured patients.

Since 2001, the federal government has allocated billions of grant dollars annually for the purposes of reinforcing critical infrastructure and enhancing the safety and capabilities of emergency response agencies nationwide. Although hundreds of smaller state and corporate grant opportunities are also available each year, by far the largest pool of grant funds can be found within the Federal Fire Act grant programs, administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Competing for grant dollars in the current homeland security climate is both an opportunity and a challenge. As pointed out earlier, to win funding in this highly competitive environment, grant proposals must be well planned, compliant and persuasive. A review of successful grant applications often finds that the narrative is the component that makes the application. Often overlooked, the importance of writing a complete and appealing narrative cannot be emphasized enough.

We spend a great deal of time developing and implementing recruitment programs but often don't have a good plan for what to do with new members when they join. This lack of planning causes a churning of new members, a lack of interest and wasted effort by recruiters when the new members decide to leave. Although volunteering in„EMS may not be for everyone, a good volunteer program can help ensure that new recruits learn about the best parts of your organization and make helping others a big part of their lives.
