medics next to ambulance

 

MCEMS provides both urban and rural response so you will be exposed to a wide variety of calls.  During your shift you will run calls from one of the seven ambulance stations  we have throughout Muskogee county.

Each station is set up to be your “home away from home” with cable TV’s, bedrooms, full kitchen, living areas and bathrooms with shower. Each station has it’s own back-up generator.

Every MCEMS station has free WiFi and a computer with internet access.   In your down time you can use the computer to surf the web or keep up your CEU’s on EMS1 Academy.  EMS1 Academy is free to all employees and available wherever  you have web access.

To keep our medics up to date, all  skills refreshers and CEU’s are offered in-house through company wide training.

The DMRT medics have responded out of state to hurricanes Harvey, Florence and Michael and to several tornados here in our state. They also are responsible for special events when team assets are being utilized.

COACHESTeam

Caring for ourselves & Others Affected by Critical Happenings and Everyday Stressors.

The COACHES™ team is our very own, award winning, peer-support program. The COACHES™ team is based on basic principals from the fields of psychology, sociology and  traumatology.  Specifically, it is a peer support program that was designed to address the specific needs of Muskogee County EMS personnel as they meet the demands and challenges unique to the field of emergency medicine.  

The purpose of the team is to reduce the negative impact of the stress of working with trauma on a daily basis, as well as the levels of burnout and compassion fatigue and interpersonal problems that are so often associated with working in the emergency services. The goal is to give medics who deal with trauma an outlet, an opportunity to talk to someone who has been on the same type of emergency calls and experienced the same type of trauma, a fellow medic who has seen it, smelt it, felt it. The medic is given a chance to vent in their own words to someone who speaks the same language.  

Medics volunteer to be on the COACHES team. We divide all MCEMS employees among the COACHES team members. When we developed the COACHES program we identified some calls that we felt had the biggest impact on emergency responders; any call that involves homicide, suicide, rape, death by trauma or the death/serious injury of a child. When a crew is sent on any one of these calls the COACHES team is notified and after the call will contact the medics/dispatcher involved. Medics can call any member of the COACHES team for any other call they run on that is not on the list. Calls can affect each of us differently based on our background and how we might personally relate to the call.  The COACHES team is available to any employee for any call they wish to talk about but dispatch will only contact the COACHES team when it involves one of the calls on our mandatory call list.

The COACHES team was named a 2014 Champion of Health by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma and was awarded a 2015 Amby award by the American Ambulance Association.
