Salisbury, Md, Sunday, December 9. 1990 THE DAILY TIMES Salisbury EMS providers attend course on hazardous materials PageD3 SALISBURY - There are 180 million shipments of hazardous materials annually in the United States. Currently there are 50,000 chemical compounds classified as hazardous with soo new com-pounds entering the market each year. With these statistics in mind, two Salisbury Emergency Medical Services (EMS) providers attended a five-day course of study on "The Medical Management of Hazardous Materials Incidents." The course, was held at the EMS degree program of the George Washington University in Wash-ington and is the only known course of its type in the nation. Participants attended from Oregon, Texas, Illinois, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Maryland. Nationally registered emergency medical technician-paramedics Robert Ross and Daniel Tilghman represented Salisbury emergency medical services at the program. The various classes included discussion of the Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) problem in the United States; modes of transportation, including truck, rail, water and air: and identification methods to determine the presence of hazardous materials. . The course concentrated on the EMS response to HAZMAT incident with primary emphasis on safety of the EMS provider, who is often first on the scene; safety of the HAZMAT team member who will attempt to stabilize the incident; and, the safety of the public, who may unknowingly become part of the incident. The course included discussions of personal protective clothing which Included fully encapsulated suits impervious to certain acids, corrosives and gases to simple splash suits that provide a minimal level of protection. Medical treatments were discussed, including specific treatments for exposures to toxic inhalations, biological hazards, pesticides and radiation. Case studies of actual HAZMAT incidents were evaluated and lessons learned were emphasized. Decontamination of the HAZMAT exposed patient and the HAZMAT team member were demonstrated by the Prince George's County Hazardous Materials Response Team. The week ended with a mock HAZMAT incident so individual students could apply what was taught during the week. The staged incident was held at the Fairfax (Va.) County Fire Training Academy. Course participants chose the part they wanted to play, assessed the incident, donned proper protective clothing, set up the decontamination zone, decontaminated the patient and the HAZMAT team and then treated the patient. The application of the lessons learned from this class is one additional way Salisbury Emergency Medical Services is actively seeking to improve and protect the community with the highest level of emergency prehospital paramedical care.

ByTONIGUAGENTI CiplUI Newt Service ANNAPOLIS - When Del. W. Ray Huff saw that the Sevenfoot Knoll lighthouse near his Anne Arundel County home had been moved to Baltimore's Inner Harbor, he decided Maryland's 24 other lighthouses should not meet the same fate. Huff is chairman of the Commission to Save the Lighthouses, an entity of his own creation. The 16-m ember commission, created last year by the Legislature at Huff's urging, wants to ensure that the Chesapeake Bay's remaining lighthouses are preserved in their original form and location. '(It's) time to get in there and save them,' said the Anne Arundel Democrat. The first Maryland lighthouse was built in 1822 and was followed by 59 more in the Chesapeake Bay region. The last was built in 1910. Many have deteriorated or been dismantled and replaced with smaU automatic beacons. Commission members said at a meeting last week they will suggest ways to stabilize and renovate the structures, explore preservation funding and look at ways to tell the public about preservation efforts. A survey is being done for the commission evaluating the condition of each lighthouse, which dot both sides of the Chesapeake Bay coastline. The commission then will look at financing the project with help from the federal government. The commission hopes federal funds would go to the Maryland Historical Trust to finance the renovation and upkeep of the light-bouses. The commission also wants the Coast Guard, which owns more than half of the lighthouses, to lease some of them to the state. The Coast Guard still would have access to the lighthouses for nav-igationa purposes. Coast Guard Lt. Scott Keene said ;"BUYING"; 9 Gold Silver Colni Flatware Diamonds 'School Rings 'Pocket Witches Estate Jewelry Pre-1940 Wrist Watches 0ld Coitume Jewelry ; 546-0817 Z LOCATED AT: SALISBURY CLOCK REPAIR 638 S. Salisbury Blvd.. Salisbury the Coast Guard would not lease any lighthouses to the state until they were structurally sound. Some, such as the Sandy Point Lighthouse near the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, may be restored and opened for tourists. 'Historically, it's a real neat project. Financially, it's a real tough nut to crack,' said Orlando Ridout, to 1 chief of the research office of the Maryland Historical Trust. Four of the remaining lighthouses are in a museum-type atmosphere. Sevenfoot Knoll in Inner Harbor, the Concord Point in Harford County, Hooper Strait at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels and Drum Point at the Calvert Marine Mu seum on Solomons Island all are open to the public. Even though lighthouses are no longer built, they still are Important for ship and airplane pilots who use them to navigate. Captains of smaller vessels also rely heavily on the markers, which have been helping local watermen for hundreds of years. DECK'S BALLS AND ALL YOUR ROOMS WITH FURINITURE FROM...
