EMS Chief Juan Cardona

We then bring on a special recorded segment with Chief Juan Cardona from Coral Springs Fire Rescue in Coral Springs, Florida. Juan has organized a special South American EMS World Conference for communities there. Dr. Joe Holley and Jim Logan from Paragon Medical Education Group were invited to come in to the conference in Bogota, Columbia with their special cadaveric training programs and teach about mechanics of cardiac arrest.

We wrap up the episode with a recap of what U.S. disaster response units are doing in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. There is a full deployment of a Federal Incident Support Team (IST) as well as USAR and DMAT teams in the islands.

Paragon Brings “The Experience”

Paragon Medical Education Group specializes in bringing what they call “The Experience” to jurisdictions around the country. They bring together police, fire, EMS, and hospital teams to train together and learn what to expect from each diverse group in the response team so that each knows what to expect from the other and how to back the other groups up. Visit Paragon’s site at ParagonMedicalGroup.com for more information on how this can be brought into your system.
