"No one on a Baywatch boat is qualified to make this type of decision regarding a scuba diving accident. Transport to a hyperbaric medical care facility is the first order of business."

Actually, the firefighter/paramedics of the Los angles County Fire Department assigned to Baywatch have most likely forgotten more about providing advanced emergency medical care than you will ever know. Pipe down.

Second...."at the actions and incompetence of Baywatch Redondo"


Remember the USCG has the call on SAR, not EMS, in fact the USCG does not have any experience in ALS. The LaCoFD has been practicing ALS in the field for a very long time.

How many of you posters are firefighter/paramedics with a decade or so of experience? Treating dive accidents, CVAs, AMIs...ect? Pipe down

As far as "jurisdiction" that does not exist in California in regards to this caper. The system does not recognize
"jurisdiction" that is movie/TV bs. If you want to discuss this mater more I would be more than happy to in private. Let me know.
