All Tied Up: The use of Restraints in the Pre-Hospital Setting Training

Wednesday, March 28, 2012, Tonight at 19:30 hours Tabernacle Rescue Squad members were joined by Shamong EMS members to learn about the use of restraints in the pre-hospital setting. This training course covered when a patient can and can not refuse care, how to properly and safely apply restraints, and what information must be included in our documentation. After about a two hour lecture everyone was broken up into groups and sent to several skills stations. These stations gave everyone some hands on experience with the different types of restraints and some time to discuss and share ideas. This class was very informative and everyone walked away with some new and useful information.

Crews cover two standbys

On Saturday March 23rd, The Tabernacle Rescue Squad was requested by school officials to provide an ambulance at Seneca High School to standby while they played host to the districts "FIRST" robotics competition. This competition was comprised of over 40 competitors from New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. Ambulance 4392 arrived at the competition around 10:30 hours and upon arrival the crew was directed by competition officials of where they wanted them to standby and all other pertinent details. While on standby the crew treated several minor injuries and also transported one spectator to the hospital for an evaluation. While the crew transported the injured to the hospital a second ambulance was requested to respond and standby until Ambulance 4392 could complete the transport. Ambulance 4394 responded and stood-by until Ambulance 4392 returned and released them. At 14:30 hours while crews were still standing by at the robotics tournament Ambulance 4391 headed over to Medford EMS Station 258. Members of station 258 were attending their annual awards banquet and had requested us to provide and ambulance at their station from 15:00 to 06:00 hours on Sunday morning. Ambulance 4391 was treated to dinner thanks to MEMS and settled in for the night. During the standby the crew from Ambulance 4391 handled two calls for service with one being a transport and the second refusing transport. At 06:00 Ambulance 4391 was released and returned to Station 439. On Sunday morning at 08:00 hours Ambulance 4392 once again headed over to Seneca High School to provide coverage for the second day of the competition. Once again the crew treated several injuries and had no transportation's. In all 10 different Volunteers provided coverage of all the standbys.

Rehab Training Turns Into Rehab Assigment

Wednesday, February 29, 2012 Shortly after 19:30 hours members had gather at Station 439 for this year's first Special Operations Drill. The topic for the drill was Emergency Services Rehabilitation. Over the past several months we have received several pieces of new equipment from the county to be placed on our new rehab truck and to be utilized on fire scenes, MCI's, accidents and any other large scale incident where emergency services rehabilitation may be needed. At 20:48 hours as members where in the middle of reviewing the equipment Task Force 4310, Stations 281, 172, 171, Quint 251, and RIT 191 were dispatched to 50 summit drive for a dwelling fire. Ambulance 4394, Rescue 4399, Ambulance 4392, Ambulance 4391, and 4393 were all on the street moments after dispatch. Chief 4300 arrived on location with nothing showing and then reported he had fire in the walls on the Bravo Charlie corner of the home. With this report Deputy Chief 4310 placed "All companies in service" and established CP 43. Ambulance 4394 and Ambulance 4392 arrived and staged in neighboring driveways. Rescue 4399 arrived and was placed in the front of the home to provided lighting to the scene and also setup rehab. Ambulance 4391 and 4393 arrived and staged on Anne Drive. Fire department units were able to make a quick knock down of the fire holding it to the Bravo Charlie corner of the home. Once rehab was established TRS personnel processed several fire crews through it. At 22:52 hours all Station 439 units were released from the fire ground and returned to Station 439 to clean up what was left out from the drill and to restock Rescue 4399 with rehab supplies. Station 439 responded with a total of 20 volunteers.

End of One Era & Beginning of Another

February 17, 2012 Today was a historic day for the Tabernacle Rescue Squad. For the first time since the founding of the squad we will not be based out of a station on Hawkins Road. At 12:00PM on Friday, February 17, 2012, we moved our base of operations to our new headquarters located at 134 New Road. This move is the realization of a dream long sought after by the membership.

Several members gathered this afternoon, some taking a vacation day from their normal jobs, to help with the move. In all it took several hours to get all the essential equipment and supplies moved from the Hawkins Road station to the New Road headquarters. In addition members have spent countless hours at the facility over the past several months preparing for today.

As most people are probably aware of now the Hawkins Road station had become to small for our organization as we continued to grow and expand our services to meet the needs of our ever changing community. As we move forward with our transition plan we will also be working on cleaning up the Hawkins Road station and turning it over to the Township of Tabernacle for their use.

We would like to thank the community for your support over the years. Just as we have served you from the Hawkins Road location for over 60 years we look forward to serving you from the new headquarters for another 60+!

Finally we would like to let everyone know that plans are in the works for an official ceremony to commemorate our move and allow the community to tour our wonderful new facility.
