"Set up to sail! Congratulations to the 11 Haz-Tac Paramedics for completing an intensive three-day training course that pairs them with FDNY Marine Units to provide medical care on the water. In the past, only Rescue Paramedics would be dispatched with marine units.
“We’re the medical component of an assignment. So this program increases our pool of people by putting HazTac Paramedics on the boats.” said Mark Bonilla, Division Chief of EMS Special Operations Command. “If there’s somebody in the water or if there’s someone on a cruise ship or vessel who needs medical assistance, they'll go out with the marine unit and start their care right there.”
The three-day training includes classroom time, pool time, and medical emergency simulations on an FDNY boat. In its first year, the program has successfully graduated 23 members to date."
