Wayne is also the publisher of www.publicsafe.org  and you can check his website for the full media release and a video of your Medic One Paramedics in action.
“Dr Mickey Eisenberg, medical director for EMS Division of Public Health, last year set a goal of 60% survival rate, hopefully to be reached in the next couple of years,” Wayne said.

Wayne also says that September is National Emergency Preparedness month, and he has updated his website  so people can start preparing for the winter months ahead – it is never too early to start. Just look at the amount of rain and flooding we’ve had in the last week or so!
