Is LFD doing water rescue training right now or is there an actual incident? A bunch of units in the river now? Clark rd bridge?

A headline that I stumbled across today -> NYC To Start Involuntarily Hospitalizing Mentally Ill Homeless People. Sounds like a good idea - would free up half our police and emergency services.

Is the recreational use of "laughing gas" (nitrous oxide) happening here in London (or Canada generally) ? Apparently it's becoming huge in europe. In the UK, nitrous oxide is now the second-most-used drug among 16- to 24-year-olds.

Is there another spectacular freedom convoy on the 401 today? I hear OPP referencing a convoy at Flying J. OPP says that the convoy is now going "10-8" (ie - in service) westbound from the flying J. 60 vehicles? Highbury and wellington 401 cameras are down. Convoy has now fully exited flying j. I believe that the vaccine mandate is still in effect for truck drivers in Canada. The next camera west-bound (southwold) is frozen and not updating.

It just seems like a waste of time and money to have EMS crews set up to document their own work when dispatch is ALSO doing it - AND there will be an audio recording of all calls that can be referenced if there's uncertainty as to what actually happened.

SumGuy, likely for the same reason police do. Accountability. They won't remember everything they do, so they log it in books so if they need to reference a past call they can recall the information they need

Its absolutely nuts that the same information about EMS runs that dispatch is recording and tracking is also being recorded by EMS crews for god knows why. Dispatch knows all the info about each run so why do EMS crews also have to be troubled to record the same info?

@SumGuy it is because with dfib FD is called to assist EMS in case compressions and ventilation is required. It is not uncommon for 1 or 2 FF to go in the Ambo with medics in order to assist

I have heard LFD being called for TWO defib-VSA's tonight. Why would they keep a patient on-scene (and apparently VSA after being shocked) and call a fire truck instead of transporting the patient to the G-D hospital?

What happened at or near Grahm (sp?) road and a highway (401 or 402?) OPP dealing with some sort of shutdown for a while now. 401 traffic maps show a problem in West Lorne.

People say that fire arrives on scene faster than EMS but I regularly hear the call go to fire first, a good minute before EMS gets the call. So fire usually gets a head start.

In the US, does fire also get called for "unconcious" (but really sleeping) homeless people seen during the morning commute?
Random Avatar
SumGuy - Sat Oct 15, 2022 10:56 am
I'm wondering why fire would be called to an unconcious (not VSA) in a nursing home. What can fire do in that situation? Give oxygen - and nursing home staff can'd to that? EMS is also naturally called and presumably would be there in minutes so again what can fire do there in that situation?

SumGuy, Generally the municipality decides on responses and tiered response agreements between services. Fire is guided by insurance policies and NFPA standards in the states (ie x# of personnel and apparatus to a fire within x# of minutes).

What body, group or organization determines what emergency service is deployed for any given 911 call (In Ontario)? I'm looking for who creates or the "SOP" (standard operating procedure) for deploying emergency services for 911 calls. Would this be a federal, provincial or municipal responsibility? Is there enabling legislation for this?
