​​​​Paramedic Intercept Plan * Live 7/1/16

The EMS District Six Board approved a proposed Paramedic Intercept Plan for all EMS District Six services.  This was proposed by our Medical Director (Dr. Blum) and adopted after much discussion and committee action.  The Paramedic Intercept Plan will be effective July 1, 2016.  After ninety days, the subcommittee of the board will meet again to determine its impact on services and resources.  Click for a link to the pdf of the VAD6 Paramedic Intercept Plan.

Training on the plan has been developed.  Head of Services and Training Officers will implement the training on the plan utilizing various methods.  District Six personnel can complete Paramedic Intercept Plan training on LearnEMS.  (Centrelearn)

EMS District Six Exam is being held on Saturday, October 13th

The time has come once again for our annual District Six practical examination.  And once again, we are looking for help from all services!  It is the expectation that every D6 service with provide personnel to help.

The next EMS District Six Exam is being held on Saturday, October 13th at the Northfield High School.  Participants should arrive by 8:30am and must not be on duty for an ambulance service.  I am projecting that everyone should be clear by no later than 4:30pm.

We are projecting 50+ candidates of EMR / EMT / AEMT levels due to Vermont EMS cancelling or closing multiple exams in the past couple months.  WE NEED A LOT OF HELP, especially Advanced EMTs and Paramedics!  As before, all participants will be PAID a stipend for their participation.  The rates are the same as previous Saturday exams, which is outlined below.  On top of this, light breakfast and lunch will be provided at the start.  

·         Evaluators (20) - $100

·         EMT Assistants (4) - $80

·         Simulated Patients (12) - $80 {Can be unlicensed; must be 16 y/o or over}

·         Dispatcher (1) - $100

·         Runners (2) - $80 {Can be unlicensed; must be 16 y/o or over}

Remember that each of us has been through this process during our EMS career.  These Norwich students have worked hard this semester and will be ready!  Remember how important a proper and professional environment is for an EMS student examination.  Just as the evaluators were there for us, we need to be there for our next generation of EMS brethren.

Please e-mail Scott Bagg at scott.bagg@cvmc.org if you willing and able to help out.
