Hands-Only CPR video

During EMS Week, each day has a different theme. Today is Save-A-Life Day. Months ago we had planned to offer a community CPR and Stop the Bleed Course. Unfortunately thing changed. So please, if you have a moment check out this video to learn how to perform Hands Only CPR. The faster effective CPR is started the higher the chance of survival, even without rescue breaths due to passive oxygenation from compressions.

During EMS Week, each day has a different theme. Today is EMS Education Day, so we would like to highlight the many ways that we have incorporated EMS education and training into our organization. EMTs and Paramedics both undergo strenuous and time consuming programs in order to become certified. Anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending on the level of certification. Additionally, once certified, they must maintain between 40 and 60 CE hours to recertify. Last year, our organization added both a Director of Education and a CE Program Director to ensure we can offer initial BLS certification to our communities and to offer our employees an easy way to get their required CE hours. We are also in the process of becoming accredited to offer an Advanced EMT Program. This is in addition to the many ancillary classes we are able to offer to our employees as well as members of the communities we serve by utilizing our in-house instructors. The highlight of this year has been our partnership with Associates in Emergency Care to bring an additional Paramedic Program to the area, giving our region increased training opportunities. We are proud of our education staff and programs and are grateful for all they do in order to better serve our communities.

Even without tornadoes, the biggest threat with the storms tonight will be damaging straight line winds of 60-80 mph. This can cause more damage than a small tornado and can lead to widespread power outages. Take all severe thunderstorm warnings seriously.

Covid-19 PSA

Wearing surgical masks in public is encouraged. It helps prevent others from contracting any infection YOU may have. However, surgical masks dont really prevent you from contracting any infections others have.

Gloves...this is important. When you wear gloves to the grocery store, everything you touch gets cross-contaminated. We have witnessed shoppers touching their faces while wearing gloves, then touching the carts, then their kids, then grocery items, then checking out they touch their money or debit cards...THEN touch the inside of their cars.

Gloves dont help at all when all this occurs. We recommend washing hands frequently, and using hand sanitizer before and after handling items.

If you insist on wearing gloves, use hand sanitizer on them as well.

Be safe out there folks!
