A new program designed to help EMS responders obtain critical health information quickly during a medical crisis has been implemented by the Broward Sheriff’s Office “BSO” in Broward County Florida.

Named after 5-year-old Weston resident Rebecca Hyman, the Broward Emergency Critical Care Assistance (BECCA) program was developed after her parents, Seth and Danielle saw the need for quickly providing Becca’s complex medical history to firefighter/paramedics during an emergency. During a visit to the ER in 2010, the Hyman’s vented their frustration to Dr. Nabil El Sanadi, the Chief of Emergency Medicine at Broward Health, as well as the EMS Medical Director for BSO, and Capt. David Erdman with Broward Sheriff’s Office Fire-Rescue.
