Hartford Wisconsin is feeling the pinch of the Union Backed State Laws for the Prevailing Wage. Unions across the country are losing ground as more and more states are seeing how their policies are helping to destroy the economy of Wisconsin communities.
The arguments allow for astronomical prices to be incurred by small and large communities that hurt rather than help. The costs for even small projects in municipality can cause those communities to not even consider improving with even needed construction because of the labor price gouge.
On Monday, May 4 we completed a special live broadcast of Wisconsin EMS Live. Guests included: Dr. Eugene Nagel, Randolph Mantooth and Nancy McFarland.
The 60 minute program was dedicated to discussing the start of Paramedic systems, those responsible for its rise in the 1960's and 70's, the determination and vision it took, and based on their experiences how they see the industry evolving into Community Paramedicine!
Eugene Nagel is a retired anesthesiologist. He was an innovative pioneer who served as medical director for the City of Miami Fire Department's rescue operation from 1964 to 1974. During those 10 years, Dr. Nagel developed the first paramedic program utilizing telemetry and voice medical control. The biophone or “orange box” was a familiar piece of equipment on the TV show EMERENCY! The TV show’s unit now resides on display at the Smithsonian Institute.
Randolph Mantooth is an actor, producer and speaker. Widely known for his role as Paramedic John Gage in the TV series EMERGENCY! -- the show that transformed America's perception and approach to emergency medical care in the 1970s and introduced millions to the word "paramedic" for the first time. Mr. Mantooth is a popular speaker at Fire and EMS events, and an advocate for firefighter health and safety. His website is www.RandolphMantooth.com.
Nancy McFarland is a retired LA County Fire Museum board director and Chair of the Pioneers of Paramedicine Committee. Ms. McFarland was instrumental in uniting the four doctors credited with starting the first (fire-based) paramedic programs in the United States in the late 1960s for taped interviews and a Lifetime Achievement Awards Gala in May of 2010.

The Wisconsin EMS Live broadcast on Tuesday, April 14 is dedicated to Community Paramedicine and recent action by the Physicians Advisory Committee.
The CommunityParamedicine conversation will run from 9:00 to 9:40 a.m. Our guests include Minnesota Ambulance Association’s Buck McAlpin, PAAW President Patrick Ryan, and city of Milwaukee Fire Department’s Michael Wright. All three are deeply involved in CP and building the infrastructure to deliver it the right way here in Wisconsin. Like anything new or evolving some education and learning is required to move forward, and there will be many questions to ask and answer.
Community Paramedicine programs have been evolving in Minnesota, Colorado and Texas. An architect in Minnesota’s CP development is Buck McAlpin, director of government affairs for the Minnesota Ambulance Association and North Memorial Medical Transportation in Robbinsdale, Minnesota. Given his experience in leading CP concepts in Minnesota, McAlpin’s knowledge and expertise is being sought nationally, to include by the Professional Ambulance Association of Wisconsin.
At 9:40 a.m. we’ll be joined by Dr. Suzanne Martens, Chair of the Physicians Advisory Committee. Her group recently recommended use of nitrous oxide as an option to control pain management at the Advanced EMT level and higher. Another recommendation is allowing one paramedic and one trained airway technician to perform a medication assisted advanced airway procedure that under current situations requires two paramedics.
As always, the live show offers caller questions. Make sure to listen live on your phone or any internet connected device on Tuesday, April 14 starting at 9:00 a.m. central time and lasting 60 minutes.
