This year, we honored a man who's defended America's freedoms behind enemy lines and upon returning home devoted himself to helping other returing Veterans struggling with PTSD, the Honorable Allen B. Clark. After attending Phillips Exeter Academy, Allen graduated the United States Military Academy in 1963, after which he was commissioned in the Army Corps of Engineers. Two years after graduation from West Point, he volunteered for a tour in Vietnam where he served as a Military Intelligence officer assigned to the Fifth Special Forces Group.  Allen sustained injuries in an early-morning mortar attack at the Dak To Special Forces camp on June 17, 1967, that necessitated the amputation of both legs below his knees.  His military service and sacrifice were recognized with receipt of a Silver Star for Gallantry in Action, the Purple Heart, and the Combat Infantryman's Badge. He was airborne-qualified. Sons of the Flag is a nonprofit organization supporting military, first responders, and civilian burn survivors by providing funding for innovative research.

Episode 1856: Firemedically Speaking - CRI: a new EMS tool to detect shock?
00:57:00
EMS Editor Mike McEvoy talks with Dr. Craig Manifold, a highly regarded EMS Medical Director from Texas about Compensatory Reserve Index.  Developed for and by the military, CRI uses pulse oximtery to evaluate changes in the arterial pleth waveform and, with a proprietary algorithm, calculates a value ranging from zero to one.  This patient specific value has correlated well to patient fluid volume status with values less than 0.3 suggesting decompensated shock has, or soon will, occur; values between 0.3 and 0.7 suggesting further assessment/treatment needed; and values greater than 0.7 suggesting normovolemia.  The manufacturer, Flashback Technologies, expects FDA approval shortly.  In this episode, @DrCraigManifold discusses CRI and its potential uses as a prehospital triage tool.

Being a professional firefighter has nothing to do with earning a paycheck but has everything to do with attitude, appearance, commitment and dedication. It's imperative that our volunteer fire service develop strong leaders. It's just as important for firefighters to make a personal commitment to study and work hard to become that strong leader that their department needs. In tonight's episode of The Professional Volunteer Fire Department, Tom will discuss leadership lessons passed on by Lt. General Hal Moore in his book, Hal Moore on Leadership: Winning When Outgunned and Outmanned. This book offers a treasure-trove of leadership lessons that can be directly applied in our volunteer firehouses. Remember, a leader does not have to be an officer but all leaders should strive to be a great leader.

Host Tom Merrill explores issues and challenges faced by the volunteer firefighter today. Being a professional firefighter has nothing to do with earning a paycheck but has everything to do with attitude, appearance, commitment and dedication. It's a new year. In volunteer firehouses across the land, new officers have taken charge and are looking to move their department forward. Some officers have it easy and are taking over well-established, top-notch organizations; they simply need to continue to tow the line. Others are looking to reinvigorate their organization. Maybe the training program isn't up to par. Maybe they suffered from years of toxic leadership and members are not coming around like they should. Maybe firefighters are quitting, leaving the department woefully understaffed. Tonight's show will look to outline steps that officers and firefighters can take to get their department back on track. Two fire service legends will join Tom in talking about leadership in the volunteer firehouse: Chief Rick Lasky and Chief John Salka will be on board to remind us all that everybody can be a leader in the firehouse and help move their department in the right direction.  Maybe you are facing a unique challenge and need some help figuring out what to do, so give us a call.

Barry has over 45 years in emergency services and is the former director of the Raleigh-Wake Emergency Communication Center in North Carolina. He provides consulting and training for communication centers and has been responsible for the management of large volume communication centers in four different states.

Episode 1682: Tailboard Talk
01:12:00
Is the fire service trading effectiveness for efficiency? Have metrics and accounting type efficiency measures made us worse in some ways? Has the prioritization of calls softened our culture so we don't give 100% every time the tones go off? In an effort to portray efficiency, does the "typical fire chief" reach a time in their tenure when their decision making is primarily political and not always in the best interest of the department they lead? Does perception based on position make a difference? We have a lot of questions that Dane Carley and Jeff Wallin discuss in this episode of Tailboard Talk.
