Mayday Operations and EMS In-Service Drills for 07/18/22

By Vista Fire Department

This week's Monday Night Drill was a "Mayday Operations" drill for our Firefighters and an "EMS In-Service" drill for our EMTs.

The "Mayday Operations" drill had our Vista Firefighters reviewing how to perform a mayday, how to properly call a mayday on an emergency scene and then we tested our Firefighters by having them call a "mayday" in a practical scenario by using F.A.S.T. (Firefighter assist and search team) skills. Vista Firefighters reviewed several different packaging techniques on how to prepare a Firefighter for removal followed by extrication techniques to remove the downed Firefighter safely from the incident. A "mayday" is a procedure to utilize when Firefighters find themselves in a position of imminent danger or where immediate communication is necessary to protect life or prevent injury.

The "EMS In-Service" drill had our Vista EMS personnel conducting practical skills evaluations and reviewing the medications we carry on our Ambulances for various different types of responses. Vista EMS personnel reviewed medications such as epinephrine, aspirin, albuterol and narcan. This type of drill is part of the annual in-service training that our EMS personnel have to go through every year.
