Throughout the month the division went through a lot of internal changes, a few guides have been implemented and there is more work to do. As many of you heard, I appointed a new Deputy Director, which is Fire Lieutenant Officer in Training Vivienne Harvey, as the previous one, Ashlynn Chadwick has resigned from the Department.
The month was pretty decent, we managed to train and certificate multiple citizens, and deputies, in Basic Life Support. What do we offer to the public?
The Medical Licensing Division offers three (3) different types of medical licenses - Basic Life Support (BLS), Intermediate Life Support (ILS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS). In terms of the process of acquiring the aforementioned licenses, there are two (2) different routes you can go down. Both of them start with filling out an Application Form in our Medical Licensing Desk which will be forwarded and reviewed for a maximum of twenty-four (24) hours but usually takes a lot shorter. During the application, you have the option as to if you wish to be trained or not, which is especially useful to those who may have been medically trained before in whatever way. We also offer two (2) types of training methods - a face to face training session at Station Eleven (11), or an online training session (( TeamSpeak )). Once you have completed a training session, you will receive an examination that you have to fill in and submit. Once submitted, your examination will be marked and the results will be sent to you. If you pass the examination, you must then pay the fee of your medical license which can be seen prior to applying in the Medical Licensing Desk.What is our role within the Department as a division?
