What: Stroke is a leading cause of long-term disability, and the fifth largest cause of death in America. As first responders and prehospital medical providers, fire departments play a critical role in improving outcomes for stroke patients and are an important element in a complete system of stroke care. But while EMS has long recognized the importance of identifying stroke patients, new treatments for stroke are leading to rapid changes in stroke care–and the way we've done things before simply won't cut it anymore. Join Mark Ellis, Division Chief of EMS of Hallandale Beach Fire Rescue, to hear how one fire department transformed its stroke care and made a huge impact in the community.
