Los Alamos Fire Department And New Mexico Resuscitation Academy In Taos Oct. 13-14


LAFD News:


The Los Alamos Fire Department and The Maryland Resuscitation Academy (RA) are conducting two consecutive one-day Resuscitation Academies.


These fullday RAs are Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 13-14 at the John Gonzales Building, 202 Chamisa Road in Taos.


The Maryland RA is a one-day, intensive course dedicated to improving survival rates of patients suffering pre-hospital cardiac arrest, and is suitable for EMS supervisors, medical directors, Fire/EMS chiefs, EMS personnel of all levels and hospital and emergency department staffs across the state of New Mexico and surrounding states and regions. Based on the curriculum of the world-renowned Resuscitation Academy in Seattle, Wash., this Resuscitation Academy is co-sponsored by the Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services (HCDFRS) and the Los Alamos Fire Department.


Through your attendance, you can expect to increase your understanding of the interventions important to pre-hospital cardiac arrest survival and learn to implement ways to track and improve survival rates in your own community. The academy features acclaimed faculty who are accomplished in the field of cardiac arrest survival, and presentations on the Science of CPR, The Importance of Time, the importance of measuring your performance, the critical role of dispatch, and more.


Additionally, the academy includes an extensive, in-depth, practical train-the-trainer session where all class participants will learn and become confident in delivering High-Performance CPR. Each participant will also leave with a standardized curriculum (including instructor guide and standardized videos) to begin to teach this practice in your department.


The Academy is a one-day academy, and you need only to register for Friday or Saturday. This course is 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and includes a continental breakfast and working lunch. Tuition is complimentary. Additional details will be provided following acceptance into the academy.
