EMTs and paramedics for the fire department are trained to respond to medical and traumatic emergencies. Under the supervision of doctors, nurses and other paramedics, we are professionals who have three to four years of medical training to handle and diffuse different situations. We receive two to four years of schooling, plus departmentwide academy training in a number of fire-related emergencies. We are the first line of defense in an emergency. When you call 911 for a medical or fire-related emergency, we are the first people you will see.
Now serving customer No. 1, you! The cruise control is set and the summer fun has begun.
It’s that time of year again when dark storms start rolling across the sky. Lightning strikes and thunder echoes across the desert floor. It’s majestic and beautiful in a way that only nature can provide. However, summer storms can be dangerous, and a powerful energy can become a deadly force. Ironically, many people not from the desert, not native to Southern Nevada, will not think twice about the rain storms. The fallacy being that Nevada is a desert, it doesn’t rain here, and when it does, it’s never for than a few minutes.
Thank you! Boulder City residents should pat themselves on the back. The Damboree Parade went off without a hitch or a balloon. Everyone respected the “no water balloons” request. No calls, complaints or citations over the water balloon issue. Thanks BC!
A problem that affects people of all ages is seizures. If you have never seen someone have a seizure, the first time can be intimidating. You are left feeling hopeless and helpless.
Happy birthday, America! As we celebrate America’s 237th birthday, I can’t help but think how blessed we are. Living in this ordered country provides the majority of us a very safe environment.
