  1. EMTs do vary from state to state with some states like New Jersey barley allowing their EMTs to do anything and some states like Montana allow their EMTs to do a lot more, Montana specifically recognizes 4 different levels of EMS provider and various endorsements. EMR (emergency medical responder, used to be called first responder) with possible endorsements to allow them to use pulse oximiters and naloxone (narcan) EMT (emergency medical technician) with possible endorsements for: medication administration, IVs/IOs, airway (allows the use of a King Tube) and naloxone (narcan), AEMT (Advanced emergency medical technician, can do basically all the stuff an EMT with all the endorsements can do) with possible endorsements for : medication administration (more meds) Paramedic (can do all the stuff of an AEMT plus additional) with possible endorsement for: Critical care (transfer of critical patents/more meds and equipment) https://leg.mt.gov/content/Committees/Interim/2017-2018/Economic-Affairs/Meetings/Nov-2017/EMT-scope-of-practice11-2017.pdf
  2. Oh yeah, multiple deer fit in the back of a pickup truck. Now the exact number of deer depends on type of deer (mule deer vs white tale, big buck vs small doe, ec). Also when you start getting into elk one elk can mostly fit in a pickup and Moose can fit but its a lot more of a struggle (and you need a big truck) http://www.emergency-planet.com/uploads/monthly_2019_08/image.png.af2e511fe1981060e304261cee156786.png
  3. A deceased bear would totally fit in that sort of vehicle. Bears are smaller in real life than people give them credit for. It might also be worth considering an option to deploy or remove a barrel bear trap. http://www.emergency-planet.com/uploads/monthly_2019_08/image.thumb.png.c350110e38c2db3bf2a885b04098d09c.png http://www.emergency-planet.com/uploads/monthly_2019_08/image.thumb.png.c350110e38c2db3bf2a885b04098d09c.png http://www.emergency-planet.com/uploads/monthly_2019_08/image.thumb.png.f3633816cea9a6ee1d2506f847f90e99.png
  4. Looks good! New scripts are nice but this looks amazing enough already. What more still has to be done?
  5. 10/10 nice work. Also not asking for a release date but do you have a list of things that are done vs things that you are still working on?
  6. What you have looks fine, you can also check the NFPA guidelines which will give you a good idea of what each type of truck is supposed to carry (in an ideal world) https://www.cattco.org/files/nfpa_1901_2009_engine_equipment_list.pdf
  7. Looks good! Glad to see people still working in this game/mod community.
  8. https://www.moddb.com/mods/mayberry-mod-2014/addons/corona-update Here's the fix for the white squares.
  9. That is going to vary based on where you're talking about, can you be more specific? Helitack is seldom used in my current area as the fires are small enough and easily accessible, that changes from area to area. Also there's lots of different types, some actually land while others rappel into the area. Crew size and collateral duties vary greatly as well. Airborne Paramedics in the USA operate mostly on medical helicopters but sometimes on fixed wing planes as well. In helicopters the crews almost always consist of a "flight medic" which is equivalent to a paramedic and a "flight nurse" which is equivalent to an RN. Both receive standard training as well as more training in critical care and in operations inside a helicopter. The crew will also include a pilot of course. That's about all I can speak on without specifics, hope it helps.
  10. So when I was involved in firefighting in Missouri I worked with management to get equipment. Basically the federal government distributes equipment (trucks, gear, random junk, etc) to state forestry departments. The state forestry departments then use some of the equipment themselves (used to be more back in the 80s and 90s) and distribute the rest to needy fire departments around the state. They distribute the stuff they kept too once they get better gear. I'd suspect that's how it works in most states. As for who has suppression responsibility that varies. I've found a link with info about Montana's jurisdiction here. Basically as I understand it DNRC responds to wildland fires on their own land and on land they are contracted to protect (USFS, NPS, BLM, BIA, basically federal areas not big enough to have their own response) and will assist local departments when requested as a mutual aid sort of deal. I would think they are NOT a umbrella, at least not functionally. They often respond when a local VFD can't put out a fire (it gets too big for initial attack units and is going to be a multi-day fire) and then they'll take over management of the fire along with the local authorities. Additional information about fire protection in Montana can be found here. They also provide aerial support for wildfires in the form of 5 helicopter based around the state. Apparently they also have a prison crew (Type 2 hand crew) that responds statewide when requested in partnership with department of corrections and the state police, info here.
  11. Found two links, one just stated what you found already and one is a forum post on a FF Forum which (although isn't an "official" source) states that Montana does not allow sirens on POVs. Montana Emergency Vehicle Statute Firehouse Forum on POV lights by state
