April 2020 – First On-line Meeting

This was our first attempt at holding a “virtual meeting”. The best thing we can say is “the next one will be better” and “we’re learning.”

Some lessons learned:

  • Live streaming takes a lot more knowledge and effort than we have at this point. Pre-recording and uploading is the better option.
  • The uploaded file should be uploaded the day before so that any problems that may come up can be addressed.
  • We waited until the afternoon of the meeting to upload the file in an effort to include the latest COVID-19 information for this county. A better option would be to have that as a separate short video rather than making it part of the longer meeting video.
  • Using the on-camera microphone just isn’t sufficient. We will have two other options for the next meeting: wired lavaliere microphones and a shotgun microphone.
  • Audio processing through software helps, but it is no substitute for recording good sound right from the start.
  • It is important to have good notes and to rehearse enough that the presentations go smoothly.

 

 
 

First Aid and Medical Kits

Take a look at this earlier blog post for details about the “Green kit” which is a trauma kit and part of the Mass Casualty kit.

This is the Contents and Locations sheet for the ALS kit made by Dyna-Med. Note that the contents of this kit are different from what is supplied by Dyna-Med. We have added some items and removed some items to suit our specific needs. This sheet is our own creation, and not furnished by Dyna-med.
