we have another academy starting in april and they will be full-fledged firefighters by july first," and they're now offering a higher level of service. "one of the first projects i undertook was to implement paramedic level services its the highest level of service we can delive in the field its the first time in the history of the reno fire department we've been able to deliver that level of service." "up to this point the reno fire department had provided advanced emt level services which is great and requires about 250 hours of education and training. the difference with paramedical level service is that paramedics bring in an additional 1500 hours of training and experience to the field." often the fire department is first on scene... and having advanced life support services on difference in the field. "one of the few things we can do as paramedics in a pre hospital setting is lessen suffering, so now we have some extrea tools in our tool kit. we gcan give them pain medication, we can alleviate that suffering and if they're
al the difference in their experience en route to the hospital" right now two engine companies are offering these services... "the ultimate goal i believe is that every time you see a reno fire department piece of apparatus it will have a paramedic on it to provide advance life support capable service." and the hope is to continue to expand this level of care. "which is possibly some community paramedicine where some of our paramedics are out in the community helping do some things that aren't correlated to traditional care like preventative healthcare, follow up healthcare for seniors after they're released from the hospital, those types of things." that was chris buckley reporting. the campaign trail is heating up. hillary clinton-- taking on bernie sanders. and the pressure builds on donald trump in a key battleground state. here's abc's bazi kanani. script: hillary clinton... no longer holding back. less than three weeks until the first votes are cast-- she told gma it's time to go harder after bernie sanders.
campaign -- for months now -- where i've been laying out my policies, where i've been meeting with people, listening to them about what they want the next president to do. and now we're in the sprint, and it is time to draw a contrast. clinton... pressing sanders for specifics on his health care plan. even enlisting her daugher, chelsea, in the fight. senator sanders wants to dismantle obamacare. wants to dismantle the chip program. dismantle medicare. sanders? frustrated by the attack. that is factually incorrect. and i hope the clinton campaign stops saying that he's hitting back at clinton-with her own words- circulating this video clip from 2008. sot - sanders since when do democrats go after each other on universal healthcare!? sanders... with a stunning lead in iowa. 49 percent to clinton's 44. the shifting iowa polls numbers... also putting pressure on donald trump. with ted cruz taking the lead there... trump is hammering his canadian-born opponent over whether he can legally serve as u-s president. tweeting today: "there is no way that ted cruz can continue running in the republican primary
doubt on eligibility. dems will sue!" cruz... now firing back. sot - sen cruz the past couple of elections we saw the democrats thrilled that they got the nominee they wanted to run against in the general election and seems the hillary folks are very eager to support donald trump and the attack that is are being tossed my direction. bazi kanani, abc news. anim a third person has been arrested in connection with a deadly shooting in carson city. deputies arrested 21- year-old reed ska-nan-door skenandore last night, at a motel on south carson street. witnesses identified him as the one who pulled the trigger... killing 18- year-old grant watkins. he's being held without bail. detectives believe watkins was shot, while selling drugs to ska-nan-door skenandore and two others. deputies searched an apartment and found about 10-thousand- dollars in cash and drug paraphernalia. police are looking for the person who fired shots at an apartment complex in sparks. it happened early yesterday morning at the sierra woods complex on greenbrae. no one was hurt, but at least one apartment building and some vehicles were hit.

gonzalez could be found guilty of killing pettigrew, but not part of the conspiracy. it was a question the state supreme court says, showed the jury was confused, and the judge should have stepped in for further clarification. "david houston/gonzalez attorney: it is absolutely correct that a judge is not to influence the outcome of a trial, and in fact, where a jury instrtuction is clear, regard that instruction as such and tell the jury, go back, read the instruction. but in this case, what became clear at that time and later of course with the supreme court, they jury was struggling with a fundemental issue of the instruction" gonzalez's attorney says his client will be released from prison-- and taken back to the county jail. he could be released on bond, because his case was overturned. a new trial date has not been set yet. houston says it could

little to no accumulation expected. sierra and western nevada through next week with periods of gusty winds...mountain snow and valley rain. the next storm will bring moderate amounts of snowfall to northeast california, northwest nevada and the lake tahoe region this afternoon through late tonight. && .short term... the storm parade america has a growing heroin problem. but new research suggests the reason for this explosion... may not be what we thought. doctor timothy johnson explains. heroin and prescription painkiller abuse... both big problems that are killing americans. deaths from prescription opioids have increased four fold since 2000... and deaths from heroin overdose have risen five fold in less than a decade. some have argued that
prescription opioids have pushed some people toward heroin abuse. but today a new paper questions the conventional wisdom that these two issues are so closely linked. researchers at the national institute on drug abuse, the n-i-h and the f-d-a suggest that heroin use was already on the rise before policies to curb prescription painkillers were put into place. the researchers examined a trove of past studies to make these conclusions... saying instead that a number of other reasons may be to blame for the rise in heroin use. among these reasons the fact that heroin is getting easier to find with lower prices and with a higher purity product. this is a potentially controversial paper? and unlikely to be the final word on the topic. but one this is for sure. if you or someone you love is suffering from opioid addiction, you should seek help before it's too late. with this medical minute,
