Education, training, vetting, everything you have to achieve using a Rescue Water Craft for the purpose of saving lives. The focus isn't rescue specific, its a plethora of needs to keep yourself, team and equipment safe and coming home at the end of the day. Personal watercraft employed in occupational use are called Rescue Water Craft (RWC). There are best practice and standards applied to these unique small boats. Few organizations appreciate the safety thresholds, K38 is dedicated towards changing this, with the incorporation of the Rescue Water Craft Specialists International Association (RWSCIA) we are sharing our standards operational base to enhance Lifesaving worldwide. It's not just about the patients or victims we respond to, its about building a successful platform to reduce potential mishaps in the field. What is the value of lifesaving? It is a sacred trust. What is life like after a successful rescue? What can a person achieve with a life well lived and what is lost when a life is extinguished? Let's talk about the values from both perspectives. Remember: The Life You Save May Be Your Own

Join Supernatural Girlz Patricia Baker & Helene Olsen as they speak with neurosugeon & author, John Turner, MD about his book Medicine, Miracles, and Manifestations: A Doctor's Journey Through the Worlds of Divine Intervention, Near-Death Experiences and Universal Energy.
Dr. Turner served as the sole neurosurgeon on the island of Hawaii for eighteen years, initially performing lifesaving procedures with a marginally trained staff and substandard equipment. He arrived with the desire to investigate the spiritual world and understand the meaning of life, death, and life-after-death. His metaphysical experiences began the first night he was on call and continue up to the present. Dr. Turner balances his time between stargazing from an observatory dome at his rain forest home and serving as a consulting physician for the Hilo Pain Center in Hilo, Hawaii.
He has come to believe that metaphysical events such as remote viewing, telepathy, consciousness, and life-after-death are verifiable manifestations of the manner in which the human brain interfaces with the universal consciousness that author Lynne McTaggart refers to as The Field.
Tune in to hear how Dr. Turner feels that paranormal is truly NORMAL!

What does your water rescue certification mean to you and to others?
It's not a piece of paper. It's an representation of skillsets based on standardization of the best practices and current methods that enable you to commence your training or professional development and your ability to acquire the necessary hours and skills of expertise to perform your duties safely and with competence.
Certification programs are often mismanaged, misguided and abused both by agencies and participants such as instructor and student cadre. Mainly due to budget, time and resource.
The certification program enables you to understand specific risks, comprehension of water and equipment needs and to prepare for recovery and transport of survivors, casualities and equipment or produce searches and or manage events.
The liability issue is the cornerstone of capability. You have either done your homework, are physically and emotionally fit, have the proper equipment and hours underway and understand how to effectively utilize it in the exact environment you will be operating in, or you do not.
A certificate for a recipient who has been vetted and tested is not a 'get out of jail' free card. It is a serious responsibility of defending and representing standards. Occupational users need to be prepared for what a 3 year certificate enables them to utilize in field work. Certificates are revokable if the operator proves to be negligent and disregard their operational standards they were tested under.
This is a serious liability issue. Safety is a trust that you earn every time you deploy. It will require of you to produce values and exceed them. It will require of you to understand the parameters of your certification.
Let's have your attention, your focus and in the end, your understanding for this important subject. - K38/Shawn Alladio
She was hired to nurse them back to health...instead, she took their lives.
For months, the DaVita Dialysis Center in Lufkin, Texas had been baffled by the rising number of deaths and injuries occurring in their clinic. In April alone, they’d rushed thirty-four patients to the hospital. But no one expected such a horrific cause to be behind it all.
Kimberly Clark Saenz was a well-liked licensed vocational nurse at the center. The East Texas nurse was a mother of two, and known for her smiles and the stories she told to help patients pass the time. But on April 28, 2008, witnesses came forward to say that instead of lifesaving medication, they’d seen Saenz adding toxic bleach to IV ports. Turns out, it wasn’t the first time. Once caught, the shocking story of Saenz’s murderous practices began to unravel…KILLER NURSE-John Foxjohn

With 90% of Americans saying they support donation but only 30% taking the essential steps to become a donor, this Episode focuses on answering questions about who needs organ donation, why it’s so important to donate organs and the difference organ donation can make in the lives of families.
