[Recommended]: EMS and Contingency Plans

  2 short Dicussion board on pandemics. See attachementphdboardu4.docxUnformatted Attachment PreviewShort Dicussion Board Questions:1. Research has shown that pandemics come in waves normally lasting about six to eight weeks.The research also supposes that 50% of employees will be absent for periods of about twoweeks at the height of the pandemic wave. Does your agency have contingency plans in theevent of a pandemic wave? Why, or why not? What are the essential parts of your agency thatwould be affected by a 50% reduction? What core positions are required to keep essential partsoperating and responding to EMS incidents? Who would manage the pandemic contingencyplan during a wave? Does your agency require EMS providers to have flu shots? Why, or whynot?2. Respond to This Students response. Bryan : Currently my agency does not have a contingencyplan. Currently we are actually short staffed as it is. We staff a total of 15 double paramedicMICU trucks and 3 squads, and if the scheduling permits, we have a peek truck or swing truck.Unfortunately, this truck does not go in service very often.

If there was a sudden shortage of 50 percent ofour staff at once we would have to shut down anywhere from 6 to 8 ambulances, effectivelycutting the county down to critical resource management. Administration above the battalionlevel would have to manage the issue and even possibly get on ambulances to aid in thepandemic. As for the flu shot, it is not required but highly recommended.…Purchase answer to see fullattachment.
