Paid Paramedic Proposal Modified


Savings Applied to Other Departments
By Dick Myers
Editor

The Calvert County Board of Coun-


ty Commissioners (BOCC), during a
marathon April 30 budget work ses-
sion, significantly reduced the planned
rollout of a paid paramedic staff to
supplement the current all-volunteer
emergency-services force.
The original plan submitted in the
staff-recommended budget called for
38 paid staff. That would have pro-
vided round-the-clock service of three
Advanced Life Support (ALS) crews
at north, central and south stations. In-
cluded in that $5.8 million plan were
three ambulances and two ALS chase
units.
During a briefing several weeks ago,
Commissioner President Tim Hutchins
suggested looking at just providing
service from the paid crew during
peak hours, which he said amounted
to 10 hours a day. That was the plan
that was essentially unanimously ad-
opted by the commissioners. Under
that plan only a net of 12 positions will
be added: eight paramedics, one of- Calvert County Board of County Commissioners

Appeals Board Approves Day Care Center


Planning Commission Will Also Review
By Dick Myers
Editor

The Calvert County Board of Appeals has approved


a special exception for a 30-child day-care facility at
Oak Tree Landing in Prince Frederick. The decision
came at the board’s May 2 hearing after a one-month
delay from the original April 4 hearing.
The approval was conditioned on the applicant, Oak
Tree Landing Community Association, receiving ap-
proval from the planning commission. At the April
4 hearing, Board of Appeals Attorney Carlton Green
raised the issue that caused the delay. He wondered if
the new use for the community center wasn’t counter to
the original approval of the community by the planning
commission.
In the end the board wasn’t sure on that point and
left it up to the planning commission to decide. The
decision could hinge on how to define a day-care center
at a community center – a commercial or institutional
use? A commercial use presumably will require the ap-
plicant to submit a revised site plan for approval by the
planning commission.

A second phase was planned followed by a third to get us on the street.” “I wanted to be a doctor when I was 10,” Inscoe ex-
plained, but she couldn’t afford medical school. “So ac-
tually, I’m a rogue doctor as a paramedic. I also have a
career with Andrews Air Force Base as a paramedic.”
One of the hot button issues in Calvert County is the
march towards a partial paid paramedic service (see
separate story in this issue about the commissioners’
funding decision). Inscoe was asked whether she and her
department support the move. “No, I’m going to be hon-
est for our department,” she said.
Inscoe believes that even though the department has
had a few scratches (five minutes to get on the street for
a call), they have the manpower to do the job and the
additional space in the new facility will afford them the
opportunity to do the training that will allow them to
attract new members.
“Now we do a double dispatch system in Calvert. If it’s
a priority one call, like a heart attack or cardiac arrest,
they’ll dispatch like us and Huntingtown or St Leonard,
or us and Benedict. And if we happen to not get there
before the other department, it’s called a scratch. So, we
went through a rough patch for a while. We’ve been as
high as 10 percent scratch rate. This past month we were
down to 3.2 and we’ve been checking in more members.”
The amount of time required for training continues
to be the impediment to recruitment. “It takes longer.
When I took EMT it was 84 hours; now it’s 165 plus.

struggle,” Inscoe explained.
Training also is in La Plata at the Maryland Fire and
Rescue Institute, which requires time for travel. And
some of the other departments, such as Huntingtown
and Lexington Park have training. “So basically, our
people look around and we’re hoping to be able to do it
correctly because of our facility; there’s a tough sell if
they have to travel.”
Another change is the time it sometimes takes for
a call, Inscoe explained. “We’re stuck sometimes at a
hospital for two hours waiting on a bed. So, it used to
be you could run in, run out and drop a patient and get
back to work. Now you can’t count on that. That’s
what’s also killed the volunteerism is delays so people
can get fired on their real jobs for being tardy.”
“We’ve been maintaining a lot more drivers,” Inscoe
said. “It’s getting people through EMT (Emergency
Medical Technician) class to partner up because you
have to have a driver and an EMT on the ambulance.
Can’t leave without an EMT.”
One of the big sells of volunteer emergency service
in Calvert County is the camaraderie in the station. For
some it is with family and both Rawlings and Inscoe
have family members involved. For others, they create
their own extended families within the department.
The company heavily depends on retirees and those
who work shift work, some with private ambulance
companies or other agencies with paid paramedics.
Some stay in the building and others respond from home
for calls.
She explained the process: “You start as an aide. So
as an aide, I teach you all the apparatus, the equipment
that I have on the ambulance and they come around and
bring it to us because I can’t leave my patient. If I say I
need a backboard, all of a sudden they have to run out
and get the backboard for me.”
To start driving they have to take “an emergency ve-
hicle operator class and that’s a 40-hour class. And then
I have 30 hours that I put them through an in-house driv-
er’s training program.”
They can take a class that helps them decide to be-
come at EMT and if they decide they take that, then the
classes to eventually become a paramedic.
Rawlings talked about what he tells people about why
he’s been doing it for almost 50 years: “Because it’s what
you get out of helping people The first time you help
somebody and they’re lying on that stretcher and they
look up and say ‘thank you,’ you get something out of
that. I do. That’s the biggest thing I get out of it is that
thank you.”
Inscoe added, “My pitch is pretty much that way, but
also this is a family group here. We are a very tight-knit
group at the station. Some of the people have lost their
family members over the years and all were their family.
“It’s work, but it also can be fun. “We cook meals to- Jimmy Hayden • Realtor

Importance of Replacement LET TER TO THE EDITOR

Myths About Columbus
To the Editor:
Christopher Columbus has been described as “paranoid, narcissistic and
ruthless” by The New York Times. The Biography Channel claims he “en-
slaved and mutilated native people.”  Not to be outdone, MTV News claims
“Columbus was a genocidal rapist.”
The problem with these claims is that they rely almost entirely on the re-
search of James W. Lowen, author of Lies My Teacher Taught Me, Ward
Churchill and the late Howard Zinn.
Before Columbus’ voyage, the journey from Spain to the West was a tortu-
ously circuitous one, involving a detour around Africa. Inspired by the travels
of Marco Polo, Columbus sought a more direct route, which would streamline
the distance between the continents.
There are several different methods less the limit of insurance or the cost Although the Vikings had sailed from Iceland and Greenland 500 years
