Parkland First Responder: "Everything I was trained on mass casualty events says they did the wrong thing."

I spoke with a seasoned emergency medical responder who was one of the first to the Stoneman shooting. He doesn't want me using his name for fear he will get fired. Here are his exact quotes. 


  1. When I went thru EMT training, it was taught that EMS was not to enter, or get close to, a violent scene.
    Unless the scene was secured by LE.
    No freelancing.
    Also, it was department and county SOP.
    LE job is to secure the scene/incident.

  2. Don't forget your blue porch light!

  3. Almost sounds like Benghazi. Times a wastin'.
