    Florida Ambulance Association has recently become aware of baseless Facebook and “prank” news site allegations of arrest leveled against Mr. Mark Postma, Chief Operating Officer of Sunstar Paramedics in Largo, Florida.

    These scurrilous claims were posted to social media in the form of a fake news story created by a former employee. Mr. Postma and Sunstar Paramedics have requested the post’s immediate removal from Facebook as well as Channel 23 News, a “prank” news site. Additionally, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Department has been investigating the defamatory posting.

    From AIMHI:

    Support Services such as logistics and fleet functions are the 'power behind the punch' of any high value EMS Organization. Fleet operations in particular require expert management and forward planning to ensure it is mission ready for today's operations and compliant with changes to vehicle safety and manufacturing specifications in the future.

    Managing such complex task vehicles in any EMS system is both a professional and full time occupation. National Award Winning (EMS10) Director of Support Services at the Richmond Ambulance Authority, Dan Fellows and James Neitz, Manager - Supply & Logistics for Northwell Health, will lead this webinar and literally deliver the nuts and bolts of a high performing ambulance fleet.
