This was linked to a number of differences, including a new type of medical corpsman used in Vietnam, trained to perform some advanced procedures such as airway management and fluid replacement. The report, published in 1966 by the National Academy of Sciences, was titled "Accidental Death and Disability: The Neglected Disease of Modern Society." Also in 1966, Congress passed legislation creating the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, from which came the first federal standards for emergency medical services. By 1967, several large urban areas i were developing advanced t : field emergency medical care ( programs using firefighters, '. including Miami, Seattle, Los t Angeles and Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh's Peter Safar is considered the father of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. He began training unemployed African-American men in 1967 to serve in what became the Freedom House Ambulance Service. They became the first "paramedics" in the U.S., having received a more advanced form of training like the Army field medics. The f"irst Los Angeles County fire rescue unit, Squad 59, officially went into service Dec. 8, 1969, with two newly trained paramedics, leading eventually to an idea from producer Jack Webb to feature fire department paramedics in a television show. When the show "Emergency" first aired in 1972, there were only three pilot paramedic programs operating in America. By the time the show ended in 1977, there were paramedics operating in every state California was the first state to adopt legislation in 1970 defining paramedic "certification" to provide advanced medical life support, when then-Gov. Ronald Reagan signed into law the Wedworth-Townsend Paramedic Act. Why the link to fire departments? Part of the "lessons learned" in Vietnam included the importance of rapid care and transport. Also, emergency medical care incidents in the field sometimes occur with rescue or extrication complications. For example, home ffires, car wrecks and other incidents may first require victims be removed from further danger. Fire departments can often get there the quickest, and also have the specialized rescue training and equipment for extrication. In the next column, we'll review the history of advanced medical care in Plumas County, including identifying the first paramedic to serve here. ; Plumas National Forest Christmas tree permits available Plumas Nationat Forest, , Christmas tree cutting permits are available at forest offices and some local businesses. Permits are $10 and include a map of tree-cutting areas. Two permits are allowed per household. "In addition to our regular business hours, weWe:added hours on select Saturdays at our Beckwourth District office," noted Deb Bumpus, district ranger. Permits are being sold from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 15, 22 and 29, and Dec, 6 and 13. Information about tree permits, including a mail option and locations of Fores ......

My question is, what are the Republicans going to do for Jane and John Doe now that they have effectively bought the nation? Salvatore Catalano Taylorsville Obamacare, waste and Jefferson Elitists ignore or show disdain for "stupid" Americans, because they' consider themselves superior. Knowing what is "best," they lie, play the blame-and-shame name-calling game and bribe us with entitlements as the means to their ends Example: Jonathan Gruber, architect of Obamacare and noted member of their elitist group, recently revealed the deliberate deceptions purposely written into the ACA, justifying it because we are too stupid to know what is in our "best" interests. More deception: Currently, illegal immigrants are not entitled to Obamacare. However, if the President grants amnesty, they will no longer be illegal and would become eligible for all kinds of federal and state government support. Democrat or Republican, these are your tax dollars. The Henry J. Kaiser Foundation reports Medicaid spending in 2010:$369.3 billion. Adding 4+ million could increase it another $25 billion per year. Also: To my delightful critic. The difference between government-spending waste and private-business-spending waste is that I don't have to invest in a poorly run business, but I have no choice where my tax dollars go. Last, why we need the State of Jefferson: California has at least 500 agencies, departments and commissions. California is home to an estimated 25 percent of the country's tigegtl immigrants. The California Supreme Court has reversed decisions passed by majority vote of its citizens. Governor Brown vows to continue his bullet train despite two court decisions that the financing plan for the $8.6 billion dollars in voter-approved bonds is illegal. Chief Executive listed the best to worst states in which to do business in 2013 -- California ranked 50th. The Sacramento Bee reported that in 2012, compared to the other 49, California spent a below-average amount on education, but had one of the highest relative levels of welfare spending (Sth). Need more? Stay tuned. Lynn Desjardin Portola Health care is our right Open enrollment for Covered California began Nov. 15 and ends on Feb. 15, 2015. If you already have this health insurance, you can also renew your coverage. It would be interesting to know how many residents in Plumas County took advantage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). It is comforting to know that, under the ACA, you can get decent affordable health insurance for you and your family and the health insurance middlemen can't rescind your insurance if you actually use it. ACA coverage even includes annual physicals. Depending on your family status and income, you can get insurance for under $100/month or even $1/month. The greater your income, the more you pay. The stark truth is that far too many Americans need 'premium assistance' to pay for this health insurance. Our government purposefully allows our jobs to be shipped overseas, and what jobs remain, are paying low wages. Everybody eventually gets sick or injured. Normal people understand that healthcare is a human right and is required for a healthy society. And, private for-profit corporations must not administer healthcare. So, what's the first thing the incoming Republican majority wants to do? Right - repeal the ACA. Do you really want the ACA repealed or do you want affordable healthcare? Sadly, I think some people would rather have you die if you ,annot afford healthcare. ,, The Repubhcan Supreme Court will even rule on a case that, because of a typo, would nullify premium assistance for non-state run insurance marketplaces. Imagine having affordable health insurance for the first time, but the Supreme Court rescinds this part of the ACA because of a typo. We need to get rid of health insurance companies all together. They provide no actual healthcare and simply pocket 20 percent of your premium for the privilege of paying your bill. Mark Mihevc Graeagle Reporter missed Gee, I was at the Forest Service meeting covered by reporter Ann Powers and I don't share her assessment at all. The crowd was unhappy with the Forest Service but anyone with a brain would have been. I felt F.S. lied by omission by not stating why they had to re-do their forest environmental plan. They left the impression that the re-do was the fault of some left-wing nut job environmentalist when it was F.S. not doing their legally defined job. The Forest Service had structured the meeting to eliminate all descent or negative comments. It was a boring, long meeting seemingly designed by a first grade teacher with different colored cards for us to write on, with but one objective in mind. Get us bored enough to give up and go home. Offensive language "F.S. did a half-ass job" that was all the offensive language. Name calling? Were we at the same meeting? I didn't hear any orany booing or name calling. The crowd did put up a roar when the head F.S. person present lost his cool and heatedly said he didn't work for a member of the crowd. The crowd heard he didn't work for the public. The rest of his sentence was cut off. Probably best for him. The Forest Service has strayed away from multiple-use/sustained-yield to focus on single-species preservation. The settlement agreement is meant to bring the F.S. back to their legally prescribed mission and to stop blanket banning of the public from their public .la. - I:thought the crowd behaved very well. Was the meeting held to get public opinion or did F.S. have to hold a meeting and could care less what the public said? I have my opinion.
