    Default EMS Documentary Film Firestorm Premieres Saturday 7/30 8pm

    Hello!

    We're very excited to announce the nationwide premiere of Firestorm. We've held smaller screenings throughout the country with various EMS groups, but this is the first time a national audience will be able to tune in.

    FIRESTORM follows Los Angeles Fire Department Station 65, located in South Los Angeles, a neighborhood with a largely uninsured and undereducated population. The LAFD handles all emergency medical services for the city of Los Angeles, and currently 82% of the department's work is medical, rather than fire-related. Eleven hospitals have closed in just five years in LA, and the challenge of delivering more than 500 patients per day to a shrinking number of hospitals is overwhelming to the LAFD. With resources strained, and 911 being used for everything from heart attacks to stomach aches, LAFD paramedics have become virtual 'doctors in a box'.

    You can view a trailer and find out more about the film at firestormmovie.com

    And learn more about the screening and replay times over at the Documentary Channel

    We'd love to get more feedback from the EMS community about the film, so if you watch the film please leave us a note, or fill out a survey here.

    Thanks again, and keep up all the hard work!

    That is what the fire servive needs is another tv or movie showing how we fight fire and what we do. Far from being the truth, it is just a movie.

    Backdraft, Ladder 49, Fire House, just to name a few.

    Go and hang with real members of a active fire company in a major sity in the US, and get your kicks and thrills from them, if you can deal with the heat, smoke and stress.
    Stay Safe and Well Out There....

    Always remembering 9-11-2001 and 343+ Brothers

    It isn't a movie, but a documentary. They are hanging with real members of an active fire/EMS company, LAFD. Can't get any more real, than that. As well, it isn't about fighting fires.

    PAY ATTENTION!!!

    Captoldtimer/jonnee/allineedisu,

    You once again show the condescending and ignorant man you are. All without any relevance in regard to what the OP posted. Just your own "been there done that sonny" rant from out of no where.

    WTF are you talking about? Coming from a guy always telling the youngsters to pay attention to detail, nonetheless. What's a sity captmiserabletimer?

    BTW, I'm not the only one that's discovered his trifecta of usernames. Those accounts are filled with the same COT style, grammar, condescension and senility all his own.
