First Aid and CPR classes
CCEMS personnel offer American Heart Association CPR and First Aid certification courses to individuals and groups.
Child Passenger Safety
Several CCEMS Attendants are Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians and are available to assist families in keeping our county's children safe in vehicles. CCEMS operates a designated "Child Safety Seat Fit Station" to assist with child safety seat questions and installations. CCEMS participates in a grant program that provides child safety seats to qualifying families. Educational programs on child passenger safety are frequently given to Childbirth Education Classes, parent groups, and others in the community.
Home Address Signs
Generally we think of disasters as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods etc. but the word "disaster" is defined as "any happening that causes great harm or danger." To the person whose farmhouse is on fire or whose father is having a heart attack, THAT is a disaster! Every year millions of Americans face some type of disaster and its terrifying consequences.
The 911 system clearly identifies the address number and road to respond to, but many times the responders can't find the address! Why Not? Simply put, most residents do not post their address numbers at the end of their driveway, or emergency responders cannot readily see the numbers that are posted.
The reflective address markers eliminate this problem by providing a large number that can be easily seen day or night. You may have seen the blue address signs around the county. Emergency responders will be looking for one at your home should an emergency occur!
If you don't already have a sign in front of your residence you can order one online by filling out the Request Address Sign form that will be emailed to the EMS office or you can stop by the office and fill one out. Once the form is received and the sign is completed we will call you, usually within 2 business days. The $10.00 payment will be due when you pick up your sign.
File of Life
Medical emergencies can happen anytime. When they do, there is confusion, panic and urgency. EMS arrive on the scene with no information about the person in need. Seconds count – they can make the difference between life and death. Does the patient have prior medical conditions? Allergies? What medications are they taking? Who do they want us to call? How do we contact their family or friends? File of Life puts these answers at their fingertips. It allows first responders to immediately begin the best possible treatment, notify loved ones, and pass this vital data on to awaiting physicians at the emergency room. File of Life has already saved thousands of lives. It is an absolute asset to emergency preparedness, and peace of mind, for every household and community across the nation. Stop by the office to pick up yours.
