Our Baltimore-based events staff responded to a medical call inside the Washington Nationals ballpark while working the game on June 11. Crews determined a guest was in cardiac arrest and worked with two off-duty medical professionals to secure a positive outcome for the guest!

During First Responders Night on Thursday, the Nationals recognized three of our members for that lifesaving work.

Every day we come to work prepared for routine calls that keep our everyday mission going. But when some days bring the unexpected, our providers never waver and exemplify our guiding principle of “At a Moment’s Notice.” These providers showed the professionalism and skill that represents the best of AMR.

20-year-old Townsend resident begins her EMT journey with AMR

Ashtyn Overton recently completed an AMR Earn While You Learn program. Overton decided to become an emergency medical technician when she and two nurses, each a member of the Townsend Area Volunteer Fire Department (TAVFD), responded to a cardiac arrest call. The experience left a mark. Being part of TAVFD, she knew what emergency response was like, but this was up close and personal. Mere weeks later, she was signed up for our Earn While You Learn program.

Overton will join other AMR employees who serve in Blount, a county currently undergoing significant residential and industrial growth and an evolving need for EMS services. http://ow.ly/yX5U50EbBwO

According to the Brain Injury Association of America, every 9 seconds, someone in the United States sustains a brain injury. There are several ways that Americans can reduce their chances of suffering a traumatic or acquired brain injury.

•Wear your seatbelt - ensure that you, and all passengers in the vehicle, are properly buckled in
•Don’t drive or operate heavy machinery under the influence
•Always wear a helmet - whether you’re riding a bike, playing hockey, or taking a trail ride with your horse
•Reduce fall risks for older adults - this might include changes in medications, strength and balance training, making small alterations or upgrades to your home and having your eyes checked
•Childproof your home and outdoor play areas - consider installing window guards, safety gates and furniture mounts

09/04/2020

It is with deepest regrets to inform everyone of Randy Breton’s passing this morning. Randy Breton served as the Clinical Education Manager for the Capital Region, and has served in many other capacities and positions over many years. Randy contributed decades of service to the EMS community in Loudoun County, Virginia, at PTS/ AMR, and in Virginia at large and served as a standard bearer for the community with his passion and devotion to the field. As a member of the PTS/AMR family, EMS community, friend and colleague, he will be sorely missed.

At this time, there are no details to provide regarding the circumstances of his passing or funerary arrangements, however they will be provided as the family permits.

Though understandably everyone will want to reach out to the Bretons to share their love and condolences, we ask that you please respect their privacy during their time of mourning. We will pass on the best way to honor Randy and share your thoughts and well wishes to the family at the appropriate time.

Hi all, just wanted to ask if anyone is interested in overtime or need a shift swap for November 14th DF 217 0745 to 1645. Please let me know if you are interested! Thank you and be safe!!

Cell- 540-424-9478

Or message me on FB
Our sincerest to our public safety partner Officer Courtney Hart of the Fourth District Washington Metropolitan Police Dept. who visited the PSCC work site to show his appreciation to the dispatchers, call takers, 311 employees, and the AMR - Capital Region staff. Officer Hart was so gracious in his visit and provided breakfast which consisted of Dunkin Donuts coffee and donuts and Chick-fil-A chicken biscuits and hash browns for each employee. The staff was overwhelmed with appreciation for such a kind and caring heartfelt gesture.

Thanks again, Officer Hart!❤️
When applying for VOEMS VMT LLC and AMR applied for a NON-EMERGENCY transport agreement only. It was also agreed upon with Fairfax County with the board of directors approval of the business asset acquiring and formation of VMT LLC. Below is the definition of NON-EMERGENCY transport and it's intended purpose. I know American Medical Response mostly deals with emergency contracts with local and city jurisdictions but in northern Virginia it's called private ambulance service(transport). In virginia these vehicles are not considered emergency vehicles and are considered for hire only. They are technically not covered under emergency vehicle response and your assuming a massive liability.

Not bashing the company in any way! Just very curious tonight so I did some research. People have no idea who is even paying them. A cool factoid for people interested in what happened to PTS, it's acquisition and non emergency status in Virginia. You can see the photos listed below. Fairfax County and VAOEMS submissions.

American Medical Response owns Virginia Medical Response LLC which purchased Physicians Transport Service and assets. They kept the trade name to continue the the legacy(which is nice since they have a huge history in northern Virginia).

Non-Emergency definition:

"Non-emergency transports are considered when the ambulance supplier is providing transportation service due to the patient's condition requiring stretcher transport."

Technically non-emergency transports are a non emergency or non urgent response to and between facilities, dialysis facilities, facilities to residence and facility to hospice. The law is vague but non-emergency ambulances should not be responding emergency to facilities for pick up or during transfer. This is why a non-emergency ambulance was called. The only way non-emergency transport happens is if the patient is stabilized and prepared for transport. The only reason a non-emergency ambulance(BLS, ALS or SLC) should be running emergency is if the patient becomes unstable. This is the reason an emergency medical technician is required. Yes, I have been guilty of "stretching this definition using medical necessity" and I know it wasn't right. If it is an emergent transport the local emergency EMS agency should transport. A good example would be from a stand alone ER. The local service should technically be utilized and a plan should be in place for reimbursement. That plan could be numerous things including up to "contracting a provider." A great example is that AMR provides emergency(for the tax payers) and non-emergency transport(for hospital corporations) in the District of Columbia.

Please address this promptly.
I was sent a crew that didn't have the equipment that they needed to transport me. I live in a building without elevators. I live on the second floor. I had to wait for another crew to come so they could use their transport chair making me wait for another crew to come delaying my transport to the hospital. Give them the equipment that they need.
I was sent a crew that was not equipped with the equipment that they needed to transport me. I live in a building that doesn't have elevators.

Does your FEMA team include Telecommunicators? I'd love to be on a list to help in situations like Hurricane Harvey, but MD, it seems no longer has a TERT team. I have taken all the online FEMA courses for Incident Command and the Basic TERT class. Can you point me in a direction maybe?
