Providence emergency crews responded to 88 Bowdoin Street just after 3:00 in the morning on Saturday for an apartment fire. Acting Fire Chief Clarence Cunha confirms that the fire resulted in the death of one person.

“We had a report everybody was out of the building, when we got to the scene there was a report of a child in the building so firefighters entered the building and found one child. And the child is diseased,” said Cunha.

He says that the child was under the age of 1 year. It took firefighters about an hour to get the fire under control. The flames also spread to the apartment next door and caused significant damage.

“By the time we got there the building was fully involved, so it was a no win situation,” said Cunha

Ten adults and seven children were displaced by the fire. The cause and where it started is still currently under investigation.

Let us not forget who started this whole EMS / medic thing; Clara Barton, RN "Angel of the Battlefield" who founded the American Red Cross. My point is, this has always been a collaboration through the years. Only due to nursing shortages and the frequency of injury on our "highways and bi-ways" there was a…

Maybe i'm missing something, but what does a transfer truck have to do with community paramedicine? Regardless, i'm in Canada and there have been a number of successful projects here using blended RN/Paramedic staffing to fill physician shortages in rural communities, as well as both using both NP's and Paramedics to deliver hospital grade care…

Reading these comments makes me laugh and be angry both. The rig you see pictured, is not used as a 911 ambulance. This rig is used for RN and CCT transfers. I work for this company, and yes we do have RNs that fill street shifts on the paramedic ambulances. When in these trucks there…
