The First Intervention Ghana needs your urgent support!

We could not respond without the help of organizations like yours”

"Jake" stood guard. The smell that nearly knocked me over didn't bother him, he circled his master, protecting him from the intruders.…

Best and Worst

A heroin overdose brings out the best and worst in us.

The best part: determining the reason for the unconscious, not breathing patient, bagging, supplemental 02, administering Narcan either IM or IV, watching the patient return, first the color, then the respirations and finally the eyes opening, finishing with the usual, what happened?

Her husband's diabetes had always been under control, she had never seen the result of hypoglycemia.

Night time changes everything.

Reading patient vitals scribbled on medical tape, finding your black nomex gloves and walking across a field are all completely different at night.

The simple things we take for granted in daylight .....are often not so simple in the dark.

And that's just the beginning...…
