Community Health Paramedic
Community Health Paramedic Program
The CHP Mission
The program was designed to assist the citizens in our district with other avenues of health care and education. The primary goal is to help patients better understand their medical conditions, manage a normal life style, and reduce the risk for potential injuries. The program is not a replacement for calling an ambulance. It is a resource available to hopefully prevent you from ever needing one. The program does not take the place of home health care.
• Illness/Injury prevention and education • Advanced Health assessments and vital sign checks • Home safety/fall prevention assessments (scheduled M-F) • Managing community resources that meet patient needs • Assisting your primary care physician with patient information • Health Fairs and community outreach • Enrolling citizens in our File of Life program • Child passenger safety seat inspections
Our patients that we enroll in the program are selected by the following: • EMS crews • Selected by the Community Health Paramedic staff (patients who utilize 911 >3 times in a 90 day period)• Physician, nurse, social services referral.
If you have questions or see a need to refer a patient, please click the link below to send us information for follow up.
STOP THE BLEED
STOP THE BLEED
Stop The Bleed Background
Motivated by the 2012 tragedy in Sandy Hook and multiple tragedies that have occurred in the ensuing years, what has become known as the Hartford Consensus was convened to bring together leaders from law enforcement, the federal government, and the medical community to improve survivability from manmade or natural mass casualty events. The resulting injuries from these events generally present with severe bleeding which, if left unattended, can result in death. The participants of the Hartford Consensus concluded that by providing first responders (law enforcement) and civilian bystanders the skills and basic tools to stop uncontrolled bleeding in an emergency situation, lives would be saved. The first responder program has received very good response and is widely being used across the country. The next step is to focus on needs of civilian bystanders.
Civilians need basic training in Bleeding Control principles so they are able to provide immediate, frontline aid until first responders are able to take over care of an injured person. Due to many situations, there may be a delay between the time of injury and the time a first responder is on the scene. Without civilian intervention in these circumstances, preventable deaths will occur.
The American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma is leading the effort to save lives by teaching the civilian population to provide vital initial response to stop uncontrolled bleeding in emergency situations. This will be accomplished by the development of a comprehensive and sustainable bleeding control education and information program targeted to civilians that will inform, educate and empower the 300+million citizens of the United States.

TRAINING FACILITY REQUESTS
TRAINING FACILITY INQUIRIES:
Many people believe that fire is unpredictable. On the fireground, our ability to predict what will happen in the fire environment is based on our training and knowledge of fire behavior. Extensive training in actual fire conditions allows us to prepare for what we will encounter in real world scenarios. In reality, there is no unpredictable fire behavior when we prepare, train and understand the conditions that we may face.
The Buda Fire Department training facilities include climate controlled classroom space, as well as a four story, multi-purpose training tower. Our training tower has three burn rooms to simulate residential, commerical, and garage fires. The tower is also equipped for confined space and high angle rescue evolutions, as well as roof operations.
