Drive Cams

I will be replacing a few “Drivecam” vehicle recording devices.   I did not realize there were so many cameras to choose from for vehicle/operator recording.  I no longer wish to use the “Drivecam” company and wanted to know if anyone was using a different brand and their thoughts on the equipment.    Particularly interested in video and audio recording, as well as two views, windshield and operator. Thanks,EdSee More

"NTOA has a published position on tactical EMS. NAEMSP has a position on tactical EMS. I suppose if the county controls the licensing of the radio station they can control the use. I would assume the county is a cooridinator and not controller of…"

"I and the other medic were issued radios by the PD. When we started, we would just take an older PD portable out of a bank for training or a callout. Last we got issued new ones with scramble chips."

"This is one that your tactical team leader needs to resolve for you. You are operating as prt of a law enforcement unit and proper communications are a necessity. Maybe the cops need to give you one of their radios. Our TEMS medics always carry two…"

Tac Medic Radio Communications

This past year two paramedics have been added to our local police tactical unit.  The medics have been well received and are considered a vital member of the team by the officers.  The medics train regularly with the team.  Unfortunately, there is one critical issue that is creating a serious concern to me and my medics,.  The medics only have one radio channel to operate on to communicate to the other team members and uniformed officers.  This channel is an abscure channel that is not used on…See More

"I conclude that the assessment or the conformation that the patent is dead is a part of why these types of mistakes occur, but as Ducan noted situations can lead a paramedic to make hasty conclusion. In fact from my own experience I find that…"
