Officers were dispatched to the front of the police department for a person who was in need of mental health assistance. Officers were able to contact the Alameda County Behavioral Health CATT team who responded and assisted the individual. We are grateful for partnerships like the CATT team.

May is National STOP THE BLEED Month.

Car accidents, injuries and violence can lead to life-threatening injuries. Someone can bleed to death in 3-5 minutes. The average response time for paramedics is 8 minutes. Knowing how to stop the bleed can mean the difference between life and death.

STOP THE BLEED® is a national health campaign to teach the public how to control life-threatening bleeding.

Alameda County EMS is the lead agency for promoting this vital education locally. Our awareness efforts include videos with stories of survivors, public service ads on AC Transit buses and at Oakland Airport, and community outreach. Free classes at local hospitals have been ongoing and will resume once the Covid-19 shelter-in-place order is lifted. Bleeding control kits will be installed alongside AED equipment at Oakland Airport and at other sites in the coming months.

We are asking for your help spreading the word this May during STOP THE BLEED Month. Properly trained and equipped bystanders can save lives.

Please watch and share this inspirational video on how Stop the Bleed training saved Oakland Resident Daveonna Malone's life: https://youtu.be/NL5xJNZ7KTI

Great work by Royal Ambulance and Falck Alameda County and the many other EMS providers who have stepped up to help out where it’s needed the most!

With call volumes currently dropping and a clinically qualified workforce ready and waiting to assist the charge against COVID-19, the staff at Royal Ambulance have left their vehicles behind and moved into Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) to help.

Happy Holidays from ALCO EMS!

11/23/2019

This Wednesday, we had the privilege of being invited to join in on the reunification of a cardiac arrest survivor with his rescuers that was arranged by Falck Alameda County's EMS Captain Johnson.

This emotional event was a clear demonstration that when all the various components of an EMS system, such as Bystander CPR, AEDs, Dispatch, Responders, specialty care, and many others come together, we all as a community can change the outcome for those that do not typically fare well.

Thank you to everyone involved that helped someone they did not even know at the time, to have another chance to spend more time with his family and friends. And thank you to EMS Captain Johnson for facilitating this event.

This particular situation highlights the importance that everyone in our community needs to learn the easy skill of CPR. This should also encourage our responders to take the lead in promoting CPR education for everyone.

Well done to everyone involved!

About a month ago, Alameda County became the fourth EMS system in the world to begin utilizing the Elegard Patient Positioning System, a newly FDA approved CPR positioning device, for cardiac arrest patients.

This device has shown a remarkable improvement in blood flow to the patient's brain during cardiac arrest and has had promising outcomes in the EMS systems that it has already been deployed in.

This system is being deployed as a quality improvement project in the City Of Berkeley by Berkeley Fire Fighters Association, IAFF Local 1227 and we will be monitoring the outcomes of the patients they treat with this system.

We will post a link in the comments section to a video that demonstrates the system's efficacy in comparison with other traditional methods.

Our Agency's Mike Jacobs just returned from speaking at the 2nd Annual International State of the Future of
Resuscitation Conference in Paris. He shared Alameda County's cardiac arrest care best practices with other clinicians and researchers from around the world.

All of our EMS providers in Alameda County should be proud to know that the work you do in cardiac arrest care is internationally recognized.
