Mt. Rubidoux Presents, “The World Needs You” Musical

RIVERSIDE, CA- The Mt. Rubidoux SDA Church presents:  The World Needs You: A Christmas Musical Recognizing the Greatest Gift to Man.  This event will be taking place at the Mt. Rubidoux SDA Church located at 5320 Victoria Avenue in Riverside on December 9 at 7 p.m.

Christ came during a time of hopelessness, spiritual darkness, division and political unrest. A time not unlike the struggles we experience today: wars and famine, distrust of our civil leaders, hate, division, earthquakes, fires, and hurricanes, sweep across our nation like never before! It is more evident that the same Christ who was gifted to the world when it needed Him most, is the same Christ we need now!  Come join us for this spectacular musical dramatization as we recognize God’s greatest gift to man.

For every ticket that is bought, the church will provide one to someone who is not a member of the congregation.  They want to encourage attendance from individuals who live in the Riverside and San Bernardino counties.  This is a push to introduce Christ to people who are seeking truth and peace during these troubled times.  Community members can expect VIP treatment, free food following the concert, and information about our church if they are led to join our family.

The event will feature; Genesis Kelly, LaDon Daniels, Kevin Carrington, Bijan Slack, Octavia Pace, and the Mt. Rubidoux SDA Choir.  All proceeds go to disadvantaged persons from group homes, men and women shelters, transitional housing and surrounding neighborhoods.

This is an event that you do not want your family to miss!

New Technology Aids Fire Department in Respiratory Arrest Calls

REDLANDS, CA- The Redlands Fire Department has deployed eight new laryngoscopes with fiber optic cameras, allowing them to deliver state of the art, cutting edge service to the Redlands community. 

Laryngoscopes are on every frontline fire company and can be used on all adult respiratory arrest responses. This pioneering technology gives medics direct visualization of the patient’s vocal cords and records the intubation process so that it may be attached to the Electronic Patient Record.

What makes this state-of-the-art equipment so beneficial to the Redlands community is that it enables easier and faster intubation of the airway in a patient who isn’t breathing. The camera allows the paramedic to see the exact placement of the tube. The combination of visualization and recording provides a tremendous advantage to the paramedics and, ultimately, the patient. The recording is then transmitted straight to the hospital so the treating doctor can see exactly how the tube was placed facilitating better patient care. Video records can be reviewed for training and ongoing quality improvement purposes. 

The Redlands Fire Department experiences approximately 50 calls each year in which this device will allow for better patient outcomes.
