EMS Safety Forces Day
May 18, 2019 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Trained EMS volunteers, under the direction of Toledo’s Mercy St. Vincent’s Hospital Paramedic Sharon Devine, provide prompt, efficient and caring response to island emergencies via Island-based ambulances.
The EMS squad works in conjunction with mainland ambulance and hospital systems for injuries or illnesses requiring more advanced medical attention. Our EMS squad participates in regular training and each volunteer has fully up to date credentials. Some of our volunteers are also certified in pediatric care and other specialty areas.
Join us on the Casino Dock where the Safety Forces on Kelleys Island will be available to answer questions about their services and rescue equipment from 12 noon until 2 pm. Come and get an up-close personal view of the equipment from the Kelleys Island EMS, Police and Fire Departments. The US Coast Guard and State Park personnel may also make an appearance during this event. In addition, Mercy St. Vincent Life Flight Helicopter will be making a landing at 12 noon, weather permitting, on the dock for all to see.
