The University of Cincinnati’s College of Engineering and Applied Science (UC CEAS) Fire Science & Emergency Management Program is hosting the “Community Paramedicine Conference” on July 12, 2013. Uniting both local and national fire and emergency professionals with one common goal—to improve public safety—the conference is being held at the Boy Scouts of America on Reading Road from 9 am to 3 pm.
The conference features success stories of nationally recognized fire and emergency professionals, including:
- Michael Bachman—Serving as the Deputy Director of Clinical Affairs for the Wake County Department of Emergency Medical Services in Raliegh, NC, Bachman also oversees the “Advanced Practice Paramedic” program which works to add a new and efficient enhancement to the existing EMS delivery model.
- Sean Burton—This Clinical Program Manager of MedStar in Ft. Worth, Texas, initiated the Community Health Program which treats patients at home rather than responding to their repeated 911 calls for routine care.
- Gary Wingrove—As President of the North Central EMS Institute in St. Paul, Minnesota, he was the first in the nation to pass a statute on paying community paramedics.
