07/14/07 88 W - + 20 - 12 IAFF EMS Conference Coverage

There are some interesting speaker/session summaries on the IAFF site, from coverage of the 9th Biennial Dominick F. Barbera EMS Conference in June. The conference explored all aspects of fire-based EMS services. The summaries are pretty short, alas. Mass casualty disaster expert Colonel David Barillo's cites some scary stats on major burn disasters. Most produce 25-50 patients, with fatalities occurring on scene within 12-24 hours. He's identified 73 such disasters in the past, in the US. That would be an interesting list to review.
