Search & Rescue and Call Audit Drill for 09/17/18

By Vista Fire Department
September 19, 2018

This week's Monday Night Drill was a "Search & Rescue" drill for our Firefighters and a "Call Audit" drill for our EMTs.

The "Search & Rescue" drill started with a PowerPoint presentation reviewing search & rescue techniques followed by several evolutions where search & rescue skills were necessary in a residential structure fire setting. This type of training helped our Firefighters better prepare themselves for the challenges they may face in a structure fire atmosphere when they may need to exit a building or conduct various tasks such as a search & rescue.

The "Call Audit" drill led by our Medical Director Dr. David Zuckerberg had our Vista EMS personnel reviewing their Prehospital Care Reports (PCR's) as part of our "Quality Assessment & Quality Improvement (QA/QI) Program" during a Call Audit on Monday night. PCR's are the documentation of all the care and pertinent patient information that our EMT's will receive during an EMS call.

If you are interested in being part of our team at the Vista FD, visit us any Monday night from 6:30pm - 9:30pm or click the "Become a Member" tab at VistaFD.org for more details!
