Florida Training Complete

Our training session in Florida was well-attended, with the entire staff of Suspended Animation and other local cryonicists bringing the number of students to fifteen. Course curriculum included our biohazard and communicable disease lecture, airway management (including Combi-tube), medications, intraosseous IV placement training, and manual cardiopulmonary support practice.

Our next stabilization training session will be held in the Los Angeles area later this month (August 19-20). We’ll be training both old and new members of Alcor’s transport team, and hope to see an expansion of individuals available for standbys and stabilizations.

Anyone interested in attending should contact our Readiness Coordinator, Michelle Fry (michelle@alcor.org).

Brief Emergency Answering Service Outage

During this month Focus Telecommunications, our emergency answering service, relocated their offices. No interruption of service was experienced for the emergency line, just the answering service. Our call forwarding to Focus was offline for less than a day during which we answered directly, and the new service was initiated from the new location with no complications or other outages.
