Feedback from Residents

 

One the morning in June 2007 we responded to an Injury Accident on Saltillo Rd., because of the time of day we responded with a smaller crew then normal. (people were at work) Medic #6 got there before us and started triage and patient care, they informed us of what we had and the two drivers were trapped and if we were under manned we might need more help. Medic #9 arrived soon after. When we got on location we had a traffic problem and needed a landing zone and needed to jaws out two drivers, we had a third patient to deal with. It was really nice to have Lincoln fire respond so quickly and deal with both drivers so we could spend our time cutting them out, We all worked really well together and I think that the quick care and short transfer time to the hospital saved lives. Special thanks to Gregg Fisher, Danny Sharff, Nancy Engelbrecht, Frank Martinez, Michael Novak, and Benjamin Walkinshaw. I felt really good after this call as things went so good.
