    McHappy Day was another great success. On Wednesday, May 8, local personalties did their best to elicit smiles and sup-port for the Ronald McDonald Houses. $1 from every Big Mac, Happy Meal or McCaf beverage was donated to the great work of the charity. In the end, $4,274.70 was raised, surpass-ing last years total by over $1,100.

    Simulation training ex-ercises to help shape the future design of ground ambulances with front-line sta from Alberta Health Services Emer-gency Medical Services (AHS-EMS) were con-ducted in Drumheller last Th ursday. More than 100 EMS personnel from across Alberta are volunteer-ing with the Ambulance Design Research Project through the University of Calgarys Ward of the 21st Century (W21C). As the rst study of its kind to be conducted in Canada, this province-wide initiative explores how EMS sta can best deliver care within the patient compartment of ambulances. Study nd-ings will in uence and improve the safety, lay-out and functionality of future AHS ambulances. Our goal is to ensure we are providing our sta with a safe, com-fortable workspace that will allow them to do their jobs as e ciently as possible to improve patient safety and out-comes, says Mike Plato, Acting Executive Di-rector of EMS business standards and opera-tions support. Th is is a unique opportunity to observe the interactions between EMS practitio-ners within the patient

    compartment of an am-bulance, while providing simulated patient care. To create a realistic emergency scenario sim-ilar to those encountered on the job, EMS sta taking part in this emer-gency exercise will treat a simulation mannequin as their patient as they provide care inside a moving ambulance. Re-searchers will use video and vision-tracking de-vices to observe and learn how treatment can be a ected by the con- nes of an ambulance. Our data collection will allow us to develop evidence-based design guidelines for future am-bulances, says Je Caird, PhD, Human Factors and Simulation Lead, W21C. Th e study focuses on e ciency of care and the safety of health care pro-viders and patients. Th rough surveys and interviews, AHS-EMS sta will also give writ-ten and verbal feedback to researchers about

    their experiences work-ing in ambulances. Th e simulation exer-cises were from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Canadian Tire parking lot. Similar training exercises will be held across the province in the coming months. Th e study is a collabo-ration between AHS-EMS, W21C and mul-tiple other stakeholder groups within AHS. Funding for this study has been provided by the AUTO21 Network of Centres of Excellence (a Government of Canada automotive-sector re-search initiative), AHS and W21C.

    Th e rugged hills of the Canadian Badlands, the sun-scorched bar-ren rock and the slicker-than-grease when wet bentonite is just what the doctor ordered to put a truck through its paces. Ford has arranged for the trucks and a gaggle of interested journalists to let us know how the trucks do. Th eyll also be telling the world a little more about the Drum-heller Valley. Next week, Ford, along with a contingent of writers, broadcasters and bloggers, will be de-scending on the valley. Th eir goal is to see how the new F150 pick-up truck can take on what the Badlands dishes out and to tell the story of the area. Christine Hollander, communications man-ager at Ford Canada is familiar with the valley after a cross-country trip nearly 15 years ago, and hasnt forgotten it. Its something you dont expect to see in

    Canada, and I always told myself this would be a great place for a truck program, said Hollander. In all, there will be 40 media personnel, includ-ing representatives from well-known outlets, in-cluding Driving Televi-sion, Motoring and Mo-torTrend magazine. She adds that while many on the junket are automo-tive journalists, there will be others who may write beyond just the

    truck. Two separate groups will be arriving on May 13 and then on May 15. Th ey will be landing in Calgary and jumping aboard a new F150, and heading straight out to the Last Chance Saloon for dinner. Th e next day the jour-nalists will get a prod-uct presentation from the chief engineer of the truck Jackie DiMarco, and then will be at Di-nosaur Downs to put the

    truck through all its pac-es; everything from pay-load, towing, o -road-ing, and a fuel economy challenge. Th ey will also get to see a little of the area. Being in Drumheller ,obviously you cant miss doing a tour of the Royal Tyrrell Museum, so part of the program is touring behind the scenes, said Hollander. Last year Ford sold 106,000 trucks in Cana-da.

    F150 versus the Badlands

    Next week Canadian and American jour-nalists will be in Drumheller to take in

    some sights and put the new Ford F150 through its paces.
