You Make the Call ebook Now Available

ymtc cover v1It has taken over a year of starts and stops, adds and edits, to finally offer you this collection of You Make the Call scenarios.

For anyone who has followed this therapy experiment from the beginning you know that we used to fire up a scenario every Friday, discuss it over the weekend, then have a solution Monday morning.

When things got crazy at home it kind of went away and I always wanted to start it back up again.

Well, here we go.

I have edited the entire You Make the Call library from this site and added even more scenarios, variables and twists and turns.  Even if you’ve read and answered every one over the last 7 years, I’ve added some more for you to enjoy.

 

Each scenario spells out your situation and asks you to decide the next actions to take.  Following each scenario I describe what my actions were and then challenge you with 3 additional variables to consider never seen on the website.  These new considerations can take your response in a whole different direction.

From You Make the Call-

“Dispatch has rung you out for a reported sick/altered mental status at a local hotel.  No, not the one all the addicts live in when they cash their checks, the one where all the conferences are held.  Confidence is high that this might actually be a call for a sick person.

Halfway to the scene you hear another rig toned out for the same complaint at the same hotel, different room.  Double checking your screen you are going to a Mr Brown in Room 403, Medic 88 is responding for a Mrs Gutierrez in room 503. Arriving at the scene you are met by the manager who asks you to park around back so as not to frighten the patrons.  Ignoring him you take the elevator up to 403 and find Mr Brown doubled over the toilet, vomiting.

It is then the door to room 405, the room next door, opens and a young woman asks you to take a look at her mother, who is dizzy and vomiting. Something is bothering you about this, but you agree to stop in after checking on Mr Brown.  Mr Brown’s wife is also feeling dizzy and complaining of nausea.

From upstairs Medic 88 is asking radio for a full hazmat response and to shelter the hotel immediately, then goes off air. What is your reaction?

You make the call.”

 

This format is perfect for exam preparation or a Company exercise.  Call the crew to the kitchen table or plan a recreation of a scenario on drill night at the fire hall.  Either way, this volume is intended to get the discussions started at the kitchen table again.  From EMS to Haz Mat to management to search and fire suppression there’s a little sprinkle of everything in here, just like a day on the Engine, Medic or Truck.

 

I’m also preparing some other fun content to come out soon, so please consider signing up for email updates from the blog.  The first 50 subscribers will receive this volume for FREE as well as updates and discounts on future content.

 

Also, attendees to my FDIC presentation “Engine Company First Strike MCI” will receive a free download code in addition to some great MCI preparation content.

 

I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed compiling it!

-Justin Schorr, the Happy Medic
