Another first for us was during a trip home from an EMS convention in Las Vegas, when a gentleman had a life threatening cardiac event at 32,000 feet. I had the pilot divert the flight to a closer airport so the gentleman could get proper advanced medical attention. The crew who came to meet the plane said it was a true medical emergency.

Please allow me to invite you to a site designed by responders for responders... the crew that is doing it is CISM multilevel trained and are there for the guys after the bad calls. It helps the responders that do not yet have a team or would be worried that they asking for help would be seen as weakness. Please join and share it when you can. As a chaplain with over 25 years of service to fire departments I am excited with it's potential to provide support.
