Reno, NV (March 4, 2022) – In honor of the Golden Anniversary of Truckee Meadows Fire & Rescue (TMFR), the agency is hosting an emergency medical situational awareness seminar designed to help Washoe County residents who may have elderly loved ones or individuals with chronic illnesses living at home.
The event will take place on Saturday, March 19 from 9 a.m.to Noon at the Fire District’s headquarters located at 3663 Barron Way in Reno.
An experienced paramedic with the agency will be on hand to share what you need to know when reporting a call to a 9-1-1 dispatcher to ensure first responders are better equipped and prepared to respond when arriving at the incident. A REMSA emergency dispatcher will also be available to share what information they are seeking when communicating with first responders.
Discussions will include what a cardiac arrest looks like to a novice observer, as well as a diabetic and breathing emergency. Additionally, basic first aid techniques will be demonstrated including CPR and how to respond to choking emergencies for children and adults.
Seats are limited and on a first-come basis. There is no fee for this program. Sign up here today.
