Presentation
We were recently presented with the American Heart Association 2019 Mission: Lifeline – EMS- SILVER PLUS award. As defined by the American Heart Association: Mission: Lifeline EMS recognition is a program designed to showcase Emergency Medical Service organizations across the nation for excellent STEMI care. Prehospital personnel are the first providers of care to patients suffering from cardiac emergencies. The role of EMS in the system-of-care for these patients is crucial and often sets the course for the patient's outcome. (heart.org)

In 2018, Concord Township had 328 calls meeting the criteria for applying a 12 LEAD EKG, following the AHA recommendations. We responded to 10 STEMI’s – patients who presented with symptoms of a serious type of heart attack during which one of the arteries that supplies the heart muscle with oxygen and nutrient-rich blood, is blocked. We were able to transmit a 12 LEAD EKG within 5 min 34 seconds of being on the scene (standard is 10 minutes) and alerted the receiving hospital of incoming STEMI within 6 minutes (standard is 10 minutes). Concord Fire Department remains committed to the recommendations set by the American Heart Association and University Hospitals of Cleveland. The goal being to open the blood vessels and restore oxygen delivery to the heart and ultimately return the patient home with as little deficit as possible. In 2020, our goal is to continue to meet these high standards set by the American Heart Association and to provide the outstanding care you expect and deserve. Happy New Year!

Each headstone had a wreath placed, thanks to your generosity. We were grateful that so many of you “Played a Part” and our local heroes were Remembered and Honored. Thank you again for your support.
