Blaine Bacon is a paramedic at Delta Ambulance and serves as our Chaplain.

When the Covid pandemic began to heat up in Maine, he began to notice certain stressors within the crew and decided to produce a series of videos to help folks both in EMS and out. He teamed up with Paramedic Supervisor Dan Mayotte and drone pilot, paramedic Nick Jackson. Below are the results. We hope you enjoy…

The latest edition of Mr. Bacon’s Neighborhood

This month we talk with Ron Morin, the grandfather of EMS in Maine. We discuss how EMS came into the state, his role in Franklin County EMS, his desire to build ambulances, his passion to build a replica of Squad 51 from the TV show EMERGENCY! We get to go for a ride in the squad. We then get to talk to Ron about his “cardiac event”. It is a long episode (1:04:24), but a really good one.

Thanks to Ron, Blaine and Dan!

Stress Management

Blaine has completed the final installment of the Holiday stress management videos. We highly recommend that you take a look at it. It is very important for you to take care of yourself and your teammates.

We have been placed under lots of stress this year and now we are dealing with some very emotionally draining calls mixed in with the holidays. We do not want to lose
a teammate, because your family and you are all important.

PLEASE reach out to Blaine, a co-worker, family or counselor if you are having issues dealing with it all. 

Stay Safe!

December 1, 2020

The next installment of Mr. Bacon’s Neighborhood is here. 

 All work and no play makes for an unhealthy front-line worker. Today Mr. Bacon talks about finding or doing something that gets you to your happy place.  

Be sure to watch until the end to see what he catches!

Have a great day!

The March Video for Mr. Bacon’s Neighborhood!

We talk with Mr. Gerry Pineau (did his paramedic student time at Delta) about the importance of brotherhood/sisterhood in public safety and the role that the “kitchen table” plays. It is a long video (1h34m+), however, it is packed with insightful wisdom and guidance that will help everyone from the newbie to the about-to-retire chief. It is great stuff and we hope you enjoy and will share it among your peers.
