Editor’s note: The following was compiled from the Quincy Village Council regular meeting minutes from May 1.
QUINCY – Council was presented with a letter detailing the recently accomplishments of the Quincy-Miami Township EMS during its May 1 meeting.
According to the letter, the squad has been granted membership into the Greater Miami Valley Emergency Medical Services Corporation (GMVEMSC), and all EMS personnel passed the yearly protocol testing with Shelby County and the GMVEMSC.
Council was also informed that four EMS personnel have become first responders, and the department recently purchased a Lifepak 12 defibrillator, which has already been credited with saving a life. It was noted Miami Township Trustees helped pay for the Lifepak 12, which had a price tag of $5,000.
The department stated its next goal is to purchase a modem to use with the Lifepak 12 to transmit information to the hospital by way of an EKG, which council was told helps to determine if a patient should be transferred by helicopter or ambulance. Following discussion, council agreed to help pay for the modem in cooperation with Miami Township. The cost of the modem was listed at $1,300.
