2019 Nature Coast EMS Intubation Rodeo Results Are In!

And the winner is.....

The Nature Coast EMS Intubation Rodeo was held on Jan. 19, 2019, at Crystal River United Methodist Church. This highly-effective competition consisted of 16 complex scenarios (including pediatric), to challenge contestants to obtain the advanced airway efficiently and effectively under stressful situations. More than 40 healthcare first responders from across the state of Florida registered for this competition. But only three emerged at the very top.  Believe it or not, Nature Coast's very own Lyle Horne, this year's winner, also won the competition in 2016. We had such great feedback from our competitors that we're planning to hold the competition again in 2020 -- and this is the only event of its kind in the nation due to the amount of work it takes to make it happen and the amount of personnel it requires to do this professionally and accurately. 

We want to thank our sponsors and station sponsors for their support, for without them, this definitely wouldn't have happened!  A special shout out to DRC Sports and Chris Moling, who supports this event faithfully.
