Sony said that she joined EMeRG because she wanted to "give back to the GW community in the best way I thought I could."
Our third member highlight is Lydia Deaton, a junior at the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences. She is a Crew Chief and the President of EMeRG. Here's what the membership has to say about Lydia: "She's worked so hard to make EMeRG a great organization, both in her role on e-board and in her clinical work!" When asked why she joined EMeRG Lydia's response was this: "I joined EMeRG to be able to practice skills in a field that I love, while being able to directly serve the GW and greater DC community."
Our next member highlight is Nancy Najjar, a sophomore at the Milken School of Public Health. She is an attendant and assistant supervisor of vehicle maintenance. What is the membership saying about Nancy? "She has so much constant enthusiasm and is always pushing to advance in her role!" When asked why she joined EMeRG Nancy had this to say: "During CI on org day, the EMeRG table caught my eye. Everyone was so friendly, and the passion they showed while talking about the organization got me excited. After that, I automatically added the EMT class to my schedule!"
For Collegiate EMS week we will be highlighting a few of our members on social media! This is Timothy Macchi, a senior at the Milken School of Public Health. He is a Field Supervisor and Supervisor of Operations. What is the membership saying about Tim? "Tim has given enormous amounts of both time and effort into making EMeRG the best that it can be!" When asked why he joined EMeRG Tim had this to say: "I joined EMeRG because I was interested in emergency medicine and disaster management, but most importantly I wanted to help my community. I wanted to be the person that helped someone in a time of need."
Our members were thrilled to learn this new triage technique with DC Fire And EMS and Georgetown EMS! Interagency coordinated use of the SALT triage will help us provide the best possible response to any mass casualty incidents in the District.
To ensure fire and emergency medical services agency interoperability for mass casualty incidents (MCI), #DCsBravest welcomed EMeRG- Emergency Medical Response Group and Georgetown EMS (GERMS) to a training module beginning the Washington region's transition from the START (Simple Triage and Rapid Treatment) triage method to the SALT (Sort, Assess, Lifesaving Interventions and Treatment/Transport) triage method.
The benefit of this transition...
*It is evidence based
*Focuses on Life Saving Interventions
*Same process for adults and pediatrics
*Simple and rapid
*Allows for the application of medical judgement
This will help further prepare our first responders to do the most good for the most amount of people during incidents where there are a significant number of patients needing medical assistance.
In honor of National Stop the Bleed Day we held our first Stop the Bleed training session. Such a great opportunity to spread lifesaving knowledge!
We are very happy to announce our new leadership for 2018!
