EMS visual translator fold-out cards or sheets

Recently I decided to order some visual translator fold-outs for my dept. for use. We are cross-trained , dual-staffed (i.e. ALS and fire) and of course the language barrier is primarily an EMS issue. I am hoping for some feedback on these "Quikpoint" cards. I think they should come in handy on some runs.

Cancel The Engine

The ultimate group for Truck Company brothers: if you know LOVERS PLUS isn't a dirty movie, if your knuckles drag, or if you got leather boots because they gave you better footing on the rungs, this place is for you.

"Doug, I'm Glad they work for you, Hope they serve you well. I do have to say the E- Ones they are replacing have lasted over 18 years of front line service. Hopefully when they work out all the bugs the 2 we have now will do as well. I just…"

Welcome to the Nation and I hope you get as much out of the interaction here as I have had. It's a great resource. While you are online, I'd also suggest checking out my blog, Firehouse Zen, over on the FireEMSBlogs network.

FHZ is a little different than the rest, as our discussion is supposed to remain civil and cerebral. As we say, "It's brain food for Mongo". So come on by and check it out and if you are on Facebook, you can "like" our page over there as well. Stay safe-
