It is with a heavy heart that WHEMS says goodbye to SAR K-9 Max. So many good memories of having him at the station over the years. To him coming to my office to get his treat, to the crews cleaning the station at 3 am cause he got sprayed with a skunk. He was a friend to all that came to work. Our condolences to handler Angie Miller.

CALL TO ACTION:
In follow up to our emails on the House Committee Hearing and the package of SR6 bills, below is a wrap up of the hearing from the PA Legislative Services.

HB1347 was a topic of quite a bit of debate. For those members that contacted your House member, thank you. You should know that the vote to support that bill passed 15 to 10. The 15 republican members voted to support the bill. The 10 Democratic members did NOT vote in support of the bill, despite your phone calls! You need to let your representative know to support their EMS and this bill!

We anticipate that HB1347 and the package of SR6 bills will be voted on in the House next week. You, your staff, your communities, and any municipal leaders need to unite and communicate with your legislator, TODAY, to encourage their support of HB1347! If they don't hear from you, they may not vote in favor of this bill!!

Several Representatives expressed concerns about balance billing. If they have concerns about balance billing, do they also have concerns that the Commonwealth is rapidly losing EMS resources? They are hearing from the insurers that they are protecting consumers. In actuality, they are harming consumers by not supporting their EMS agencies because this is a PUBLIC SAFTEY issue. If something isn't done NOW, more EMS agencies will close their doors and EMS will not be available for the residents in their most vulnerable times.

Points to hit home with your Representative:

There are 6,800 paramedics and 17,000 EMTs active in PA to handle 2 million requests for service in a year. People will die because calling 911 will not guarantee that an ambulance will be responding. It happens every day now in rural PA and will eventually, if not already, will happen in all parts of the state. If there is no sustainable funding stream to support EMS…and there is not a this time… there will soon be a public safety crisis resulting in loss of life and as policy makers they have been informed and will bear the responsibility for that. There are certainly other options but the reality is that without a plan to address this issue, the insurers will offer a benefit for emergency services that won't exist.

Crews have restored power to approximately 65,000 of the estimated 100,000 customers who lost power because of damage caused by the high winds. Continued high winds forecast today may cause additional outages. This is a significant weather event and damage continues to be assessed. Full system restoration could take multiple days. Thank you for your continued patience.

𝟮/𝟮𝟰/𝟭𝟵 𝟭𝟬 𝗣𝗠 𝗨𝗽𝗱𝗮𝘁𝗲: Crews are working rotating 16-hour shifts and are back in the air restoring power, where it’s safe to do so. Approx. 50,000 customers are without power at this time. High winds will continue through Monday morning and more damage is expected. This is a significant weather event that isn’t over yet. We encourage customers to make alternate plans as full system restoration could take multiple days. We appreciate your patience

• Approximately 28,000 customers are without power.
• Service has been restored to 20,000+ customers.

𝟮/𝟮𝟰/𝟭𝟵 –𝟭:𝟬𝟬 𝗣𝗠 𝗨𝗽𝗱𝗮𝘁𝗲: DLC is activating its storm response plan, which includes increasing staff by bringing in additional lineworkers and contract tree clearance personnel as well as additional 24-hour operations and call center staff to help with restoration efforts.

𝟮/𝟮𝟰/𝟭𝟵 - 𝟭𝟬:𝟯𝟬 𝗔𝗠 𝗨𝗽𝗱𝗮𝘁𝗲: DLC increased staffing in anticipation of today’s high winds, which can down trees, power lines and electrical equipment. Assume any downed wire is live and dangerous. Report a dangerous situation or power outage ASAP: 412-393-7000 or duquesnelight.com.
