Virginia Beach EMS Marine Medics o work in concert with the Virginia Beach Police Department and the Virginia Beach EMS Mareine Rescue Team. Our Marine Medis operate in a fluid environment (both figuratively and literally) which presents many challenges to make ensure strong force protection for our maritime responders, workers and recreationalists.
Marine Medics typically undergo three types of missions.
1. Shore Based Dive Recovery Operations
2. Generalized Patrols (Special Events Standbys)
3. Specific Rescue Missions (Cruise Ship Intercepts, Mutual Aid Events)
Through balancing operational readiness and flexibility, the team is designed to provide comprehensive Advanced Life Support care within the socpe of a paraedic, but also have the ability to function under more advanced scenarios that may take place out of range of radio contact with medical control.
