It is a hand of obligation
the pioneering team that started it all... BPER
#humblebeginnings thru the efforts of the then Barangay Chairman of Basak Pardo now Cebu City Councilor Hon. Dav...e Tumulak... he founded Basak Pardo Emergency Response Team aka BPER way back December 28, 2007... BPER provided free pre-hospital care services to the people of Basak Pardo and its neighboring barangays, making Basak Pardo the first barangay in Cebu providing such ambulance service...
On April 1, 2013, a month before he won a seat in City Council, he founded Cebu City Emergency Medical Services... BPER automatically became the sole pioneer team... (thus making Cebu City EMS fondly called formerly BPER)
On June 1, 2013, with ERTs from Pit-os, Inayawan and Labangon joining the circle of emergency responders, Cebu City Emergency Medical Services was officially launched as Cebu City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office's (CCDRRMO) ambulance services arm...
Today, under the current administration and new headship, with a new branding as City of Cebu Ambulance Services... Dave Tumulak and BPER's legacy continues to live on...
TESDA EMS NCII Certification is not equivalent to EMT-Basic level competency per 2013 revision. It is intended for not medically trained people who wants to get into EMS as Medical First Responder aka First-Aider aka Ambulance Care Assistant.
Clarification for TESDA EMS NCII which is not an equivalent of EMT basic level competency anymore as per 2013 revision, it's now intended for Medical First Responder, First-Aider, and Ambulance Care Assistant levels.
The Cebu City Emergency Medical Services joins the celebration of the Nurses' Week... Happy Nurses' Week to us Care Experts and Life Savers....
To my fellow nurses, ug kamo uban dinha nga naay mga nurse sa kaugalingong mga pamilya o panimalay...
Usa lang gyud atong iboto nga partylist ha... #80 ANG NARS
If dili ta musuporta, kinsa pa diay lain dinha para murepresent nato didto sa kaulohan nga kita mismo permi man lang ta nagpakahilom? Maypa gani mga maestra gamay'ng rally kurog na ang gobyerno... until when ta mubarog against exploitation of nurses?
We deserve to be heard once again in the next congress...
Ug kadtong uban dinha nga ingon walay nabuhat ang NARS partylist... be updated oi! Don't be ignorant... Nasugdan na uh! Ato pa ni biyaan? It took decades before our profession is being represented...
So unsa na ang NABUHAT sa Ang NARS sa unang tulo ka tuig sa Kongreso?

Nurses in Ambulances?... what’s new?... the use of registered nurses (RNs) in the pre-hospital setting is very common in many countries like U.K., France, Italy, Norway, Netherlands, Spain and Sweden to name a few… mostly European countries...
nurses work in their ambulances, doing advance life support which parallels to that of the paramedic level... they may work under direct supervision of a medical director/physicians or may work independently and supervise paramedics/em...ts...
in the Netherlands and Sweden, all ambulances are staffed with at least one registered nurse...
it is because those mentioned 1st world European countries have greatly recognized the importance of nurses in the EMS system…. nag.o-onboard pa nga ang physicians sa Estonia…
in the U.S. most air ambulances are manned by nurses…
of course, nurses are highly trained professionals and they have this reputation of versatility and flexibility in terms of changing roles in the whole healthcare system and that is to include pre-hospital settings... history tells us that they are among of the frontliners in the emergency scenes in the far past during the world wars...
on the other side, medics/emrs/emts/paramedics and other ems practitioners are struggling to get recognized as legit healthcare providers in the pre-hospital setting like roadside, wilderness or combat scenes with this emerging rescue-EMS practice and systems... and yes, they are trained to respond to the uncontrollable scenes outside the boundaries of the hospitals...
these two great healthcare providers often clash with each other and question each other's scope, practices and professional legitimacy in the ems-rescue world... wag tayo papaapekto sa NURSE vs. MEDICS love-hate relationship dun sa U.S.… kaya nga issue talaga sa kanila yan… ewan ko ba sa kanila… baka nga may insecurity issues siguro dun…
Clearly, nurses are significant emergency care providers... there's nothing that can stop this growing trend of nurses-in-the-ambulances or nurses-to-the-rescue genesis because the world needs nurses...
It's true that most nursing education curriculum doesn't include the ambulance setting (and focuses more in a more controlled environment like hospitals), even though there’s emergency nursing in their higher years... but hey, they already have the knowledge and skills, and like any other professionals, nurses just need the EMS exposure or experience and further trainings in the said uncontrollable settings to kickstart their EMS ADRENALINE…...
AND of course we'll never go wrong under the caring nature of a nurse....
