EMS: A True Calling
Many say that being an EMT or firefighter isn't a choice, it's a calling. The Matanuska-Susitna Borough has some of the most dedicated responders in the state. They are available for EMS, fire, technical and water rescue calls.
The Mat-Su Borough EMT's, paramedics, rescue technicians and firefighters are on-call paid staff. These dedicated men and women train and respond during their free time, juggling family events and scheduled sleep to aid a stranger in need.
This set of written standing orders is intended to guide the actions of MSB EMS providers in the majority of circumstances; however, neither these orders nor any others can anticipate every situation that may arise. While medics may not exceed their level of training without specific on-line direction, they must use their judgment in applying the standing orders, and should consult Medical Control as appropriate. If a MSB EMS provider is given and executes verbal orders beyond the scope of standing orders, that information shall be forwarded to the EMS QA Manager immediately after the event.
