We are a group of local firemen in the city of Jacksonville, Florida looking to further our mission and purpose; however, we are unable to achieve this without the support of organizations like yours. In brief, sponsorships provide us the financial ability to accomplish our mission. This includes, but is not limited to, paying for advance training, equipment, travel, and entry fees fo r fire department related competitions.
The manner by which we are striving to improve patient safety and outcomes is through our interest and specialization in vehicle extrication. Fortunately, advancements in technology have produced vehicles that are generally safer; however, this poses significant difficulty when trying to extricate patients that are trapped. When patients are injured in automobile accidents, it is important that they are extricated and receiving treatment within one hour. If treatment is delayed beyond this time frame, their chances of survival decrease dramatically. It is for these reasons that we have dedicated our time into continuing to further our education through didactic events and competitions with fire departments from all around the world.
