Gordon Graham, recognized internationally for his in-depth public safety and risk management expertise, as well as his powerful and insightful presentations, will explain the approach public safety agencies should take to these important issues.

Graham will show how you can determine your community’s level of support and control measures that can be used to increase that support and your agency’s standing in the community.

Christopher F. Nollette, EdD, NREMTP, LP F-MEDICAL SESSION TRACKS The conference sessions are slotted into tracks so you’ll know which session topics are appropriate for you. You can attend any session in any track. Here’s how we’ve defined each track: BLS/ALS CLINICAL These sessions are applicable for EMT-B as well as EMT-I and EMT-P, although the material will be more of a refresher for the latter two provider levels. ALS CLINICAL These sessions are intended for EMT-P providers only; the material presented will be at an advanced practitioner level. LEADERSHIP For managers, supervisors and EMS executives, these sessions present the latest topics on government regulations, strategy and practical tools for EMS agencies to be successful. EDUCATION Educators, whether full-time or part-time, will find these sessions of interest as the track presents topics related to instructional design, presentation skills and student interaction. This year, we are presenting a number of sessions that deal with – or use – simulation. SPECIAL FOCUS These are topics of interest to all EMS professionals, regardless of their position or employment. DISASTER AND TERRORISM PREPAREDNESS These sessions offer education on planning, resources, and response for responders to natural and man-made disasters. 12 Register at www.EMSToday.com

MONDAY, MARCH 4 – WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6, 2013 THREE-DAY PRECONFERENCE WORKSHOP Monday, 1:00 PM – 6:00 PM Tuesday, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM Wednesday, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM NAEMSE Instructor Course Part I The National Association of EMS Educators The NAEMSE EMS Instructor Course Part 1, has been designed and developed as a result of the DOT/NHTSA National Guidelines for Educating EMS Instructors. This Course represents the didactic component and practical application of the education process necessary to become an EMS instructor. A portion of the course will be conducted online and will include educational material pertinent to the successful completion of the course. Registration cut-off is February 6, 2013. Participants will complete a written post-test which includes information from the NAEMSE Educator Course web site. Attendees who complete the entire course and pass the post-test will receive a Certificate of Course Completion from NAEMSE. Course will be held at the Renaissance Washington D.C. Downtown Hotel (one block from the convention center). Enrollment will be limited to 50. TUESDAY, MARCH 5 – WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6, 2013 TWO-DAY WORKSHOPS 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM Developing and Managing the Emergency Medical Services Field Training and Evaluation Program Troy Hagen, MBA, EMT-P Skip Kirkwood, MS, JD, EMT-P, EFO, CMO This class is intended for EMS supervisors, educators, managers and executives who want to develop a sound, legally-defensible field training and evaluation program (FTEP) to smoothly and effectively integrate new employees into their agencies or to strengthen and solidify an existing field training program. It is not intended for individual paramedics selected to or seeking to become EMS field training officers. Many senior EMS officers believe that once a new paramedic completes pre-service training, he/she should be ready to “hit the street” and function as a productive member of a two-person ambulance crew. In many agencies, this new paramedic will be expected to lead an EMT partner and to provide first-line advanced life support to 18 Register at www.EMSToday.com critical patients. In today’s EMS environment, this approach is no longer viable. EMS agencies must fill in the gaps in cognitive, psychomotor and affective performance for new personnel to be successful in the field. Liability is something every senior office must be aware of and guard against, and professional, valid, documented training is the key to liability mitigation. Upon completion of this 16-hour program, you will be able to implement the EMS-FTEP in your EMS agency. Course will be held at the Renaissance Washington D.C. Downtown Hotel (one block from the convention center). 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM Guiding You to Success on Your Transport Certification Exam Critical Care Transport Certification Review Course This fast-paced two-day course helps to prepare clinicians for the critical care transport certification exams: CCP-C®, CFRN®, CTRN®, and FP-C®.

Shapiro, EMT-P E. Reed Smith, MD, FACEP For use by all first responders in all prehospital highrisk scenarios. Similar to what the Tactical Combat Casualty Care guidelines did for care in military settings, civilian first responders have needed a framework for use in dangerous operational scenarios that defines constraints in both the civilian environment and resources while providing guidance to accomplish the life-saving mission. The Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) guidelines represent a set of evidence-based best practices for the immediate medical management of wounded at or near the point of wounding. Its application is therefore not limited to law enforcement settings, but is intended for any situation where there is an increased on-going threat to the provider and patient. Developed from military battlefield TCCC guidelines, TECC balances the on-going threats, civilian scope of practice, differences in the civilian population, medical equipment limits and the variable resources for response in civilian atypical emergencies. These guidelines represent a treatment framework that accepts mitigated risk while providing a significant life saving benefit. TECC seeks to define the correct intervention at the correct time in the continuum of pre-hospital care. This workshop will introduce the concepts of TECC and allow hands-on familiarity with common equipment in use with the guidelines. Class limited to 40 participants. THURSDAY, MARCH 7, 2013 HALF-DAY WORKSHOP 8:00 AM – 10:30 AM Certified Critical Care Paramedic (CCP-C®) and Certified Flight Paramedic (FP-C®) Examinations The expectation for the CCP-C® exam candidate and/ or the FP-C® exam candidate is a mastery of current trends and therapies in critical care transport medicine in a flight or ground environment, as well as a significant knowledge of ACLS, PALS, NALS and BTLS/ ITLS. FP-C® exam candidates should also have a significant knowledge of flight physiology and current CAMTS flight safety standards. The certification exams are not meant to test entrylevel knowledge, but rather the experienced paramedic’s advanced skill level. Questions? Please call the BCCTPC office at 770-9789-4400. Note: Register for this course at http://www.bcctpc. org. Registration fee is $175 for IAFP Members, $275 for non-members. Review course held on Tuesday-Wednesday, see earlier description.

So you better build 22 Register at www.EMSToday.com The Medical Supply Chain as Critical Infrastructure in the Healthcare and Public Health Sector Stephen Curren, MS A healthy supply chain is critical to the ability to provide healthcare on a routine as well as emergency basis. The 2009-H1N1 pandemic demonstrated that rapid increases in demand are sufficient to disrupt the supply chain for a single product for many months. Complicating matters, very few products that we use every day are produced entirely within the United States. Global production has allowed more products to be delivered to more customers at a lower cost, but in some cases it has made the supply chain more vulnerable to disruptions from a single country. The Healthcare and Public Health Sector Critical Infrastructure Protection Partnership brings together the private sector and government to increase resilience of the healthcare system during emergencies. The partnership has studied the impacts on the healthcare supply chain during of the emergencies of the past several years. 9:15 AM – 10:15 AM BLS/ALS CLINICAL What About CPAP For Kids Sephora N. Morrison, MD, MSCI, FAAP There is very little evidence supporting the use of Noninvasive Respiratory Ventilation techniques during transport of the pediatric patient.

EMS LEADERSHIP Don’t Overlook the PIO: One Position Can Make or Break an Organization Richard Huff, EMT-B To be successful in trying economic times, EMS organizations need to use media, marketing and social networks to build awareness for their services. As budgets get tightened, getting the word out about what EMS organizations do for their communities is critical to their survival. Moreover, knowing what t do when a reporter calls can make the difference between a positive or negative result in the media. This class will provide useful tools for participants to use at home and immediately increase their visibility. A good PIO can push an organization forward, and handle problems when they develop. However, it’s often a forgotten position. The class will touch on topics important for career and volunteer services alike, and along the way, you’ll learn how to use media and marketing to increase staff morale, increase membership, and solidify financial backing.

EDUCATION Failing to Plan Is Planning to Fail: Why You Need Lesson Plans Connie Mattera, RN, MS, TNS, EMT-P One would never attempt to build a house without an architectural plan, yet we sometimes try to build engaging, academically sound, and student-centered class offerings without a plan and then wonder why learning didn’t occur or we weren’t a resounding success. Don’t send a chicken to eagle school! We need excellent EMS educators and one of the tools in their box needs to be carefully crafted lesson plans that artfully design powerful educational experiences. It’s fun! Come learn the means to align learning needs and educational standards in a way that avoids curricular chaos and brings the classroom alive. SPECIAL FOCUS Update on Denver’s Prehospital Sepsis Alert Program T. Ryan Mayfield, MS Now in its fifth year, the Denver Metro Sepsis Alert Program is one of the first and longest running programs in the nation.

Time at the end will be reserved for an interactive discussion of lessons learned and how agencies can set up their own program. DISASTER TERRORISM PREPAREDNESS Boots on the Ground; Overview of the National Disaster Medical System Andrew Garrett, MD, MPH The National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) is a federally coordinated system that augments the Nation’s medical response capability. The overall purpose of the NDMS is to supplement an integrated National medical response capability for assisting state and local authorities in dealing with the medical impacts of major peacetime disasters and to provide support to the military and the Department of Veterans Affairs medical systems in caring for casualties evacuated back to the U.S. from overseas armed conventional conflicts. Dr. Garrett will focus on how the NDMS relies on and interfaces with local EMS agencies and professionals. DISASTER TERRORISM PREPAREDNESS IInformation Sharing, Suspicious Activity Reporting Fusion Center EMS Integration Raymon Mollers, OHA Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel and organizations play a critical role in response and recovery during most emergencies. They also play an important role in identifying, preventing, protecting against and mitigating criminal and naturally occurring incidents, so it is vital that timely and appropriate information is shared within and between the EMS community, the national network of fusion centers, and all homeland security partners. This multi-directional communication will aid in the identification of and appropriate prevention of, protection against, and response to all types of hazards. EMS LEADERSHIP The purpose of this EMS Information Sharing session is to outline the importance of EMS engagement with fusion centers and the Intelligence Community, identify challenges to collaboration, and discuss solutions to facilitate information sharing efforts. Existing capabilities, tools, and best practices will be identified and documented to assist EMS stakeholders in understanding their role in homeland security information sharing processes and provide homeland security partners with a better understanding of the value of EMS partnerships. These activities will assist jurisdictions interested in exploring the integration of the EMS community within their jurisdiction’s information sharing processes.

Attend this special two-hour panel discussion, presented by members of the International Association of EMS Chiefs (IAEMSC), and see the power and value of professional collaboration as Chiefs from a variety of EMS system configurations discuss issues, solutions and results from their organizations. What ICS Doesn’t Teach you about Leadership: Real Life Lessons Learned and Mistakes Made on the Frontline of Volunteer EMS Richard Huff , EMT-B The Incident Command System is great for telling EMS officials what to do and where they stand in the official pecking order, but it’s useless when it comes to running a volunteer Emergency Medical Services Operation. This class will provide insight and tips on how squad line officers can efficiently serve the community while also managing people. This class draws on the instructor’s three years as chief of one of New Jersey’s best squads. Along the way he’s learned there’s more to the job than answering 9-1-1 calls. Being chief requires being part cruise director, part camp counselor, part divorce counselor and part psychologist. This class will give participants real-life experience in managing people. SPECIAL FOCUS Changing the Paradigm: Rescue Task Force Response to Active Shooter Events E. Reed Smith, MD, FACEP Fire/EMS services need to change the paradigm of response to active shooter incidents to save lives. This session will address active shooter incidents, defined as a person or persons using lethal force with both the intent to kill and available access to more victims, a phenomenon that is occurring on a frequent basis across the United States. These tragic incidents range from a single active shooter to complex coordinated attack scenarios, resulting in casualty numbers that can include a few individuals or dozens as was experienced in Aurora, Colo. After the assault on Columbine High School, law enforcement and tactical team tactics changed to rapidly address the immediate threat, and, as a result, have been shown to be critical in reducing the number killed and wounded. Knowing that the “fate of the injured lies in the hands of the one who provides the first care to the casualty,” join Dr. Smith to will discuss common characteristics of active shooter events and present the Arlington County (VA) Rescue Task Force deployment model as one solution.
