This morning, MCAS staff participated in skills training with our medical directors, Dr. Wright and Dr. Farcas. Skills included cardiac arrhythmias, trauma skills, advanced airway skills, and basic life support airway skills. Practicing these skills often helps to ensure our providers are ready to use them when the time comes.

Dr. John A. Collins, who has been MCAS's Medical Director for 44 years has announced his retirement. Dr. Collins has been a dedicated servant of the Morgan County Community for more than 44 years. Morgan County EMTs and Paramedics as well as Morgan County Government, local hospitals, fire departments and the entire Morgan County Community owe a great deal of gratitude to Dr. Collins for his years of unselfish and inspirational service.

Dr Collins was born on September 7, 1947 in Oak Park, Illinois. He moved to Morgan County upon completion of his residency in 1976 and practiced at East Morgan County Hospital as well as Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado. Dr. Collins also served as the Trauma Services Director at Colorado Plains Medical Center in Fort Morgan, Coloardo from 1992-1997.

In addition to being the physician advisor for the Morgan County Ambulance Service and county-wide EMTs, Dr. Collins has also provided physician advisory services for Washington County's Ambulance Service since 1996.

The Morgan County Ambulance Service is very proud to have worked under the direction of Dr. Collins for 44 years and would like to thank him for his years of dedicated service to our agency and the residents of Morgan County.

Dr. Collins successor, Dr. Andra Farcas have graciously accepted the role of Medical Advisor for the Morgan County Ambulance Service. Along with Dr. Farcas, Dr. Angela Wright, and Marc Scherschel will be leading MCAS into the next generation of medical advisors. They come to us from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, EMS Integrated Medical Direction.

"We provide prehospital medical direction for multiple agencies, ranging from urban to rural and frontier. We are breaking down the traditional approach to medical direction and have built the model known as “Integrated Medical Direction” to partner with our communities and agencies to provide custom, comprehensive programs in prehospital care.

This approach to medical direction is born out of the concept that each EMS agency and system is unique and requires distinctive medical direction. Medical direction should be a collaborative team approach with a common goal of excellent patient care from the 911 system to transfer of care. All communities deserve access to high quality prehospital care, which stems from accessible and robust medical direction and team-focused education." University's Website.

Their team provides Medical Direction to a number of Northeast Colorado EMS agencies. By choosing the University for Medical Direction, MCAS will begin collaborative events with regional EMS agencies for training and care.

The primary responsibilities of EMS medical directors are to establish protocols and training for their providers and to perform quality improvement and quality assurance functions for their providers and agencies.

We are extremely excited for this opportunity and look forward to continuing to provide the best possible pre-hospital care for the citizens and visitors of Morgan County.

Tonight Cadet Coordinator Kaytlyn Cox, EMTs Miguel Estrada, Kebri Walker, and Kalissa Walker are teaching the MCAS cadets how to take vital signs on patients.

The cadets will be able to accurately measure blood pressure, pulse, respiratory rate, blood glucose, and oxygen saturation. They will be able to obtain these vital signs when on calls and transfers with our crews. Cadets are all 16-21 years old and have an interest in medicine and healthcare. No certifications are required! The goal of this program is to encourage young adults to pursue a career in healthcare. Once ready, MCAS will assist these cadets to enroll and study for the EMT program so they may one day be certified Emergency Medical Technicians.

If you or someone you know is 16-21 years of age and interested in joining the cadet program, email us at [email protected] for more information or stop at 1000 E Railroad in Fort Morgan.

Congratulations to both Adrian Villarreal and Justin Ryan!

Both Adrian and Justin have been employed with the Morgan County Ambulance Service full time for 3 years (Justin) and 5 years (Adrian).

Over the last year, Adrian and Justin have attended Paramedic School, in the same class. Both have successfully completed the Aims Community College Paramedic Program and graduated last night (8/18/23). Adrian and Justin had to complete over 52 credit hours, over 1,000 hours of clinical hours, and had to go through rigorous educational coursework and hands-on skills.

Additionally, both have not only completed the program successfully, but have also passed the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians written exam on their first attempt! We are extremely proud of both of these individuals. As they transition into their new roles, both will have to complete Field Training Orientation with MCAS prior to being released on their own. Adrian and Justin will continue to work full time at MCAS and strive to provide our citizens and visitors with the highest level of pre-hospital care possible.

Help us to congratulate Adrian Villarreal, NRP and Justin Ryan, NRP. Awesome work, Paramedics!

In partnership with St. Elizabeth Medical Center’s Chest Pain accreditation, Megan Klacman, RN with SEH set up an amazing booth, as usual, for our crews to assist teaching hands only CPR, early heart attack recognition, and healthy lifestyle choices.

A big thank you to KCs Graphics for wrapping both of our SUV's yesterday!

You'll see is driving around the county in both of these SUV's, also called "Quick Response Vehicles".

These vehicles are utilized heavily by the Morgan County Ambulance Service for public relations events, traveling to meetings, delivering supplies to both the Wiggins and Brush station, running errands, and responding to 911 calls. These SUV's are used as a support vehicle through our department and are extremely useful. This limits the miles driven on an ambulance but also allows for us to respond quickly to a 911 call until other personnel in an ambulance arrives.

As an enterprise fund, the Morgan County fleet department owns the vehicles. Morgan County Ambulance pays the county per mile that a vehicle is driven. Ambulances cost significantly more than an ambulance to maintain and to upkeep with repairs. We are grateful to have these SUV's within our fleet to make daily operations that much easier.

Thank you for the awesome wrap that matches all of our ambulances! They look awesome!

*** POST FROM MARCH 7TH 2023 ***

RE: MCAS Consultative Visit March 7th – March 9th
Over the next three days, the Morgan County Ambulance Service will be conducting a Consultative Visit in partnership with the Northeast Regional Emergency Trauma Advisor Council (RETAC). “A consultative visit offers a comprehensive analysis to assist local decision-makers to determine how services are delivered in their community. These visits use outside perspective to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the current EMS and trauma services system.
The consultative visit is based on the 14 components of an EMS system established in 1996 by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration in the "EMS Agenda for the Future" plus an additional component included specifically by Colorado. This is the same model used by each Regional Emergency Medical and Trauma Advisory Council (RETAC) to create the biennial plan and include:
- Legislation and Regulation
- EMS Research
- System Finance
- Human Resources
- Medical Direction
- Clinical Care
- Education System
- Communication
- Public Access
- Information Systems
- Public Education
- Prevention
- Evaluation
- Integration of Health Services
- Mass Casualty Response
Committee members include: Josh Hadley, Brandon Daruna, Randy Lesher, Nancy Bartkowiak, Dr. Joshua Poles, and Eric Lucas.
RETAC representatives include Jeff Schannels and Marylyn Sykes-Johnson.
Stakeholders include: East Morgan County Hospital, St. Elizabeth Medical Center, Morgan County Sherriff Office, Colorado State Patrol, Wiggins Police Department, Fort Morgan Police Department, Brush Police Department, Morgan County Board of County Commissioners, MedEvac, Air Life, Wiggins Fire Department, Fort Morgan Fire Department, Brush Fire Department, Hillrose-Snyder Fire Department, Morgan County Coroners Office, Morgan County Communications Center, Morgan County Finance Department, Morgan County Human Resources Department, Dr. John Collins, Morgan Community College, Wakefield and Associates, and Morgan County Ambulance Staff.
We are excited to spend the next three days exploring every component of the Morgan County Ambulance Service to determine system strengths, weaknesses, and hear recommendations to be able to better support the citizens and visitors of Morgan County for years to come. When the visit is complete, a final report will be presented to the Northeast Colorado RETAC, MCAS, stakeholders, and the Morgan County Board of County Commissioners. This is not an audit, but rather a voluntary visit to receive outside perspectives of Colorado EMS Industry Leaders.

On May 19, 2023, at 7:41 a.m., a Federal Search Warrant was served at 19605 Roediger in unincorporated Morgan County, Colorado. The FBI – Special Response Team (SRT) executed the Search Warrant and secured the property for several agencies, including Federal and Local Agencies, including the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, to complete a search of the property safely. In addition, local agencies, including the Brush Police Department, Fort Morgan Police Department, Morgan County Sheriff’s Office, Morgan County Communications Center, 13th Judicial District Attorney’s Office, Colorado State Patrol Hazmat Team, Fort Morgan Fire Department, and Morgan County Ambulance Service assisted during the ex*****on of the Search Warrant.

This was after a related Federal Search Warrant was executed at the Deluxe Motel, 817 E. Platte Ave. #22, Fort Morgan, was completed on May 17, 2023, without incident, which also located evidence supporting the Brush Case.

Both Search Warrants were obtained based on the investigation by the Brush Police Department regarding the homemade Explosive Device that was deployed in the area of Meadows Trailer Park, 324 East Edison, on May 6, 2023.

A total of 15 people were located on the Roediger property. Two people were arrested on the scene because of outstanding Arrest Warrants. The others were released before the Search.

Multiple items were seized during the Search, including a stolen trailer, Illegal Drugs, and contraband. Unfortunately, this is a continuing investigation, and more information cannot be released now.

The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank all agencies involved in this for safely completing this high-risk operation.

Anyone with information regarding this location or any other crime is asked to call the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office at (970) 867-2461 or Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Tips can also be submitted through the Crime Stoppers website at www.NoCoCrimeStoppers.com. Those offering tips through Crime Stoppers that lead to the arrest and filing of charges on a suspect(s) may be eligible for a cash reward.

Today was scheduled annual maintenance for our Zoll X Series cardiac monitors from Life Med Safety.

These cardiac monitors are equipped on all 7 ambulances within our fleet. They provide crucial diagnostic information about a patients condition including accurate blood pressures, heart rate, oxygen saturation, capnography, carbon dioxide levels, and allows us to preform EKGs (Electrocardiograms) anywhere.

These cardiac monitors are not new to MCAS, but play a intricate role in patient evaluation and treatment to guarantee the best care possible during a patients time of need. Without the use of an accurately calibrated cardiac monitor, patients would not receive the best care possible.

Also serviced were the FERNO iNX Power Load Stretchers. Ambulance stretchers have adapted and changed immensely throughout the life of our profession. Not only do these particular types of stretchers allow for safe transportation for patients, they also prevent work related injuries to providers by loading and unloading patients with the push of a button. You read that right, a push of a button. These cots do not need to be lifted by staff and can load and unload almost on their own which is safer for patients and providers.

We’re thankful for LifeMed Safety and their continued commitment to ensuring safe practices by calibrating and maintaining our expensive equipment.

These hefty investments (over $595,000.00 to be exact) give patients the best chance of survival, give providers the tools necessary to preform their job safely, and ensure that patients are adequately assessed, monitored, and treated on their way to definitive care.

Tonight’s cadet lecture is being taught by Cadet Leader Brandan Leake.

Each month, the cadets must attend a mandatory monthly meeting which includes education and skills to better prepare the cadets to run 911 calls with our crews and to better prepare them for EMT school.

Tonight’s lecture included obstetrics and pregnancy emergencies.

The cadet program is for high school students ages 16-21 with an interest in medicine. Cadets do not have to have any previous experience and do not have any certifications. This program is designed to give high school students the ability to learn about EMS prior to paying for and going to college to obtain the certifications.

Cadets in good standing who have been enrolled in the program for at least 1 year who have completed the EMT certificate are eligible to be hired at 18. If not in the cadet program, EMTs must wait until they’re 21 to be hired.

Minimum requirements for the program include 8 hours of shifts per month, monthly meetings, and a ”C” grade average in school.

Cadets get a uniform and are a member of our crew taking care of patients who call us for help. We are extremely proud of this group and their dedication to providing exceptional clinical care.

Thank you MCAS! The Cub Scouts had a blast! We really appreciate you coming out and teaching all the kids today!
I would like to publicly thank the two young ladies from the MCAS who transported my mother from EMCH to Eben Ezer on Saturday, April 7. The care, compassion and professionalism they showed to both my mother and my family was exceptional. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
