Hero 24/7: DC paramedic saves life while off duty using CPR

Strong Work! 🚑❤️

DC Fire and EMS paramedic Shelia Smith has taught hands-only CPR to thousands of people over the past few years. It's a method that doesn't require mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to help save a life, but it certainly did one evening as she came home and found a man in need of help outside her house. "...

It’s so nice to see a thank you to EMS in the treatment of a patient

This shout out is to Leon County EMS! You guys are awesome! Not only are you are #1 EMS crew in terms of volume at TMH, but you are making a huge impact in our community. Nice job!

Couple of weeks back a 70-something year old lady was eating breakfast with family when she suddenly stopped speaking, was totally paralyzed on the right, and collapsed. Her daughter called 911. You guys responded and called a stroke alert in the field... this allowed us to prepare things at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare.

She arrived with a NIH Stroke Score of 33. (For this score, without treatment the chance of death is 50%). We got her up to the cath lab and performed a thrombectomy, opening up a blocked artery in her brain (left middle cerebral artery). She did great. She went HOME a couple of days later. You guys saved this lady’s life. Great work!

With the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund set to expire, we cannot turn our backs on our 9/11 responders and survivors – not now, not ever, especially as thousands of them are expected to be diagnosed with 9/11-related cancers.

Today, I’m joining these heroes and their families, along with Jon Stewart, Senator Cory Gardner, Senator Chuck Schumer, and Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney, Congressman Jerry Nadler, and Congressman Peter King to call on Congress to fully fund the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund and make it permanent.

All 9/11 first responders and their families should have somewhere to turn when they need help. It’s the least we can do. #Renew911VCF

Kylie Logan, the young woman in this photo, lost her father, a flight paramedic, a few short months ago. The gentlemen photographed with her, the flight crew from Atlantic Air Ambulance, were her fathers flight team, partners, and family. These men made sure Kylie made it to the father/daughter dance.
We are honored here at VOEMS to call them our family and so proud of the stand up men they are.

Who We Are

The Veterans Of Emergency Medical Services recognizes the dedication of the men and women who serve others in their times of crisis and need. We are the Best of our communities, serving beside the Finest and the Bravest at every emergency, sometimes paying the ultimate sacrifice.

The Veterans Of the Emergency Medical Services [VoEMS] started as a Facebook group designed to be a place for EMS professionals to come together and share their experiences, thoughts, fears, hopes and challenges within a supportive network of their peers. We started as a group of about 200 members but quickly swelled to over 5,000 in a single week following the senseless and heartbreaking murder of a 14-year veteran of the FDNY: EMT Yadira Arroyo. Yari was a 44 year-old single mom to 5 boys who was killed by a gang member while working yet another overtime shift as she had to do so frequently, just so she could support her family. Yari wouldn’t have been in that place at that time if she had been recognized as an essential professional and was paid a salary worthy her service.

Our founder, Jennifer Waddleton suggested we start a fundraiser as a way to donate money to Yari's sons. A Challenge Coin was commissioned and the artist and manufacturer donated their work to the cause. VoEMS went forward with a goal to raise $2,500. We were shocked and overwhelmed by the response from our community. Thanks to our Veterans and the working professionals of the EMS Community across the country and from eight other countries around the world, we sold 2500 coins eventually donating $35,000 to the Arroyo family.

After Yadira’s tragedy we began to tell our stories in the group - the “# metoo” - of EMS. Sadly, but not surprisingly, there are far too many stories of us suffering assaults on the job; both physical and sexual. Too many stories of us coming to real harm at the hands of our patients or bystanders. Too many of us suffering from PTSD and depression and burnout. We share about how often we go into danger unarmed, unprotected and unappreciated. But we also share the stories of why we started this job. We talk about what called us to serve. We talk about the saves, the babies delivered, the times we made a positive difference in someone else’s life. So many of us say we would do the work for free because no matter the danger or heartbreak or nightmares; we love what we do. The joys outweigh the fears. The saves outweigh the losses.

We understand and we support each other. We fundraise for each other. We fundraise to erect a plaque to recognize the bravery of the EMS community that responded to the worst mass shooting in American history in Las Vegas. We fundraise to provide scholarships for kids from Volunteer Ambulance Corps across America to go to college. We fundraise to allow EMTs and Paramedics who have been injured on the job to train for new skills and new careers after doing nothing but serving their communities in EMS for their entire adult lives. We fundraise to support organizations that offer free mental health services to EMS professionals. We fundraise to lobby for health coverage for the Heroes of 9/11 who are still suffering and dying all these years later. We fundraise to erect a National Monument to honor the fallen of EMS in Washington DC. And we fundraise to give comfort to the children of a murdered mom who was “just doing her job”.

We are The Veterans of the Emergency Medical Services. We are the Best of our communities, there to help you and we are asking you to help us. All proceeds of the sales on this page go to support the Veterans of the Emergency Medical Services.

"The almost year-long impasse has resulted in protracted strikes and are planned to continue until the Health Service Executive (HSE) agrees to negotiations and the agreement that union members from the National Ambulance Service Representative (NASRA) branch of the Psychiatric Nurses Association (PNA) will be recognised." I guess that is better than Jersey City, where we were part of the janitors union...
So it’s the end of EMS week 2019. I need to boast a little. After 26 years as a full time EMT i finally finished medic school.. my civil service promotion is finalized (not FDNY) tomorrow is my first solo tour, I got hired for a per diem Paramedic gig and my Connecticut state paramedic license came through..STAY SAFE EVERYONE!

This lends credibility to our profession, right? :(
Thanks Jen for all you do. Got mine this morning. Awesome. Thanks.
I was looking for patches and other items for a shadow box and came across these . Proudly worked in both divisions. The Quartermaster one is very rare. We only made hats and didn't wear them that long.
Alright folks looking for some help here. Does anyone of any online sign language classes for medical providers (for free or low cost) and of any apps that would be helpful with this? Had a call where I felt like I had a true disconnect with a pt. because of this and I don’t want to go through that again. Thanks in advance.
I ordered and payment was deducted from my account on the 7 day of June 2018 for a Tin Man coin but as of this date I have yet to receive the coin or an email with a tracking number. I would have figured I would have at least heard it's been shipped by now (30 days).
This dude. Lost his leg and got back on an ambulance and works as a street medic. Got fired 'cause his leg broke. Help out!
