    the michigan Rural ems Network (miRems) is an expansion of the Huron-Sanilac EMS Network. The original network, formed in 2004, was partially funded by grants from the Michigan Center for Rural Health and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Rural Health Policy. The first Network members were the nine EMS services in Michigans Huron and Sanilac Counties.

    In 2008 the Network became a Michigan non-profit corporation. The success of the two county initiative led to discussions with rural EMS services and professionals from across the state regarding the need for a statewide rural EMS Network.

    In the fall of 2010, a survey was sent to all Michigan EMS agencies to assess their needs and challenges. In May of 2011, the Network was awarded a three year Network Development Grant from the Office of Rural Health Policy. A kickoff meeting was held with key state stakeholders on May 11, 2011 and the development of the Michigan Rural EMS Network was underway.

    In January of 2012 MiREMS received its 501c3 designation, and in October 2012 a Board of Directors representing each of the Michigan Trauma Regions was elected. Membership is available to any individual or organization, rural or urban, with a vested interest in the provision of out of hospital care in rural areas of Michigan. As we move forward, our efforts will focus on meeting the unique challenges of EMS services and professionals that provide care in rural areas of Michigan.

You cant afford to miss this class, offered in this area, at this price!Civil, criminal, and punitive damages and charges may become a part of your vocabulary if one of your vehicles is involved in a crash that injures or kills one of your staff members, a patient, or a civilian vehicle operator/pedestrian. This EVDT program was developed to allow the emergency vehicle operator (EVO) who wishes to become an instructor in this intense program, the opportunity to teach other operators that there are other options available to them. The program also prepares your operators to become better professional emergency vehicle operators when it involves their own personal safety of their crew, their patient, and the community they are serving

    This course meets the MDCH Agency Inspection requirement for department approved vehicle operation education and competency assessment. Certificate through NHTSA and VFIS.

    AclS recerTIfIcATIon coUrSe Staying current as an ACLS provider requires routine recertification every two years. This one-day intensive refresher program covers acute cardiac care, pathophysiology, treatment modalities and pharmacology. Attendees will participate in teaching and evaluation scenarios that review the necessary skills needed to manage the first 10 minutes of an actual resuscitation. This course has been designed for individuals that have an ACLS Provider card that will expire soon or that have prior ACLS training. rIcK hollAnd (1l PreP, 2P AIrWAy, 1P med, 2l med)To ATTend ThIS clASS yoU mUST Be lIcenSed AT The PArAmedIc leVel

    PeArS ( P e d I AT r I c e m e r g e n c y A S S e S S m e n T, r e c o g n I T I o n A n d S TA B I l I z AT I o n ) This course helps healthcare providers develop the knowledge and skills needed for emergency evaluation and initial stabilization of seriously ill infants and children. PEARS teaches students how to recognize respiratory distress, shock and cardiac arrest and provide appropriate lifesaving interventions within the initial minutes of response until the child is transferred to an advanced life support provider. It also emphasizes the resuscitation team concept.

    The goal of the PEARS Course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured infants and children, resulting in improved outcomes. Once a child is in cardiac arrest, even with optimal resuscitation efforts, outcome is generally poor. According to the 2010 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC, only 4% to 13% of children who have a cardiac arrest in the out-of-hospital setting survive to hospital discharge. The outcome is somewhat better for children in the in-hospital setting: about 27% survive tohospital discharge.mel oAKley, Jeff TroSPer, lUKe SchUITemA (1P PT ASSeSS, 1P AIrWAy, 2l med, 1P SPec conS, 1l SPec conS)

    coUrAge To Be SAfe e V e ry o n e g o e S h o m e P r o V I d e r c o U r S e ( W I T h T r A I n T h e T r A I n e r o P T I o n )First Responders must have the courage to face a multitude of risks in order to save lives and protect their communities. Their courage allows them to willingly risk their own lives so that others can be saved. A different type of courage is required to stay safe in potentially dangerous situations, avoiding needless risks, and tragic consequences. This provocative and moving presentation is designed to change the culture of accepting the loss of first responders as a normal occurrence.

    Building on the untold story of Line-of-Duty Death (LODD) survivors, it reveals how family members must live with the consequences of a first responders death, and provides a focus on the need for a change in fundamental attitudes and behaviors in order to prevent line of duty deaths. The central theme promotes the courage to do the right thing in order to protect yourself and other first responders.

    This program is a must for all who care, share, and have a feeling for the safety of all first responders. The first 4 hours of the course are open to all providers and other concerned individuals. The last 3 hours of the course will contain the Train the Trainer portion. Those who would like to be trained as educators to teach this program in their agency will attend the full day. mArK Becmer, Andy BezenAh(ProVIder coUrSe: 2l PreP, 2l oPS TrAIn The TrAIner: 1l PreP , 1l oPS InSTrUcTor: 1 InST Tech, 1 ed AdmIn) PleASe noTe: fIrefIghTerS regISTerIng for ThIS coUrSe ShoUld AlSo regISTer ThroUgh The offT ImS To receIVe credITS.
