Regional Training Calendar

Peninsulas EMS Council is the “go to” source for information on EMS training and education throughout the region!

Whether hosted by PEMS, our sister regional councils, or produced by our agency and health system partners, PEMS is the central repository in the region for training information.

If your organization is providing training and you would like to make that training available to others, please let us know below and we will post it to the Regional Training Calendar.

Training Announcements

Chesapeake Fire Department invites you to join us for our January 2018 OMD Roundtable featuring Dr. Peter Antevy.

Dr. Antevy is a nationally recognized speaker and lecturer with a passion for pediatric medicine. However, on February 18, 2018 he found himself responding to a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. As a parent, the husband of a graduate of that school, and the medical director for many of the agencies responding to that shooting, he found himself having to deal with the worst incident imaginable. Dr. Antevy has agreed to come and share his story on the response to the incident and the impact and aftermath to the community.

Dr. Antevy will also be doing a presentation on Medication Safety focused on how we as providers can protect our patients and ourselves from medication errors. Dr. Antevy is the CEO of Handtevy Pediatric Resuscitation System.

The program will end with Dr. Ben Fickenscher from Chesapeake Regional Medical center doing a brief presentation on a new program that Chesapeake Regional Medical Center is launching in January to expedite long-term treatment for patients with an opioid addiction that want help. This new program will start treatment in the ED and get them connected with addiction services right away. This is an exciting program to help people get the help they need right away while still engaged with the healthcare system.

I have attached a program announcement and a brief bio for Dr. Antevy.

When: January 22, 2018

Time: 1300-1700
