EMS News: Washington State Dispatcher Sends Mom to Rescue

I think it is great the common sense thought that went through this dispatchers mind. These people probably were saved from peril  by dispatching good ol’  mom in her Old Town Dirigo kayak. Okay maybe not that kayak, but it is still an act of heroism for all those involved. Many would not have thought this an option, and I’m sure there was some rules broken, but as long as she notified the proper people before her mom I do not see a problem with this.

This is great for a call that could have taken upwards of 20 minutes to get the area response teams on scene to make the rescue. Having someone used to the the waterways made it relatively safe for mom to do the rescue with help from family.

What are some of your thoughts on this? Would you enjoy more articles and my thoughts? Let me know.

Thanks,
