EMT'S Prayer

Lord,
Grant me the wisdom so that I may treat those of your children that lay at my feet. Let my hands be gentle, sure and swift to impart to them your sacred gift.

Let me see only a patient's need not their color, race or creed. Help me always to be my best even when it's on my hours rest.

Grant me the insight to understand why patients of mine are going to die. Let me remember that when they do there is a wonderful life in Heaven with You.

Lord, if in the time of duty I should fall help my family to hold their heads tall. For it was You who decided that I should be one of your chosen few, an EMT.  Amen.

DAYS OF OLD:

 

Gillett Area Ambulance Service, Inc. Wisconsin State Patrol



Congratulations to the GAAS Inc. EMS Personnel Julie Yonker, Donnie Hinkfuss and Kevin Kissel for being featured in the Bellin Health and Green Bay Packers, "Make The Right Call, 911" campaign.


A law enforcement officer approaching a vehicle has to be ready for anything. On March 6th, 2010, State Trooper Joan Timm pulled over a vehicle for speeding only to discover the women was rushing to seek medical attention for her husband, who was displaying symptoms of a stroke.

Although the couple did not use the 9-1-1 system, Trooper Timm made the right call for them, radioing the Oconto County Sheriff’s Department 9-1-1 Center which then dispatched Gillett Area Ambulance to the scene, which was several miles away.

Shortly thereafter, the man began having what appeared to be a seizure, rendering him unresponsive and without a pulse. Trooper Timm continued to relay information to the dispatcher while moving the man outside of the vehicle and onto the shoulder of the highway. She placed an oropharyngeal airway, a device to restore a clear flow of air, in his throat and began to perform CPR.

With relayed information from dispatch, Gillett Area Ambulance personnel knew this would be a “load and go” upon arrival. The patient was quickly secured in the back of the ambulance, where CPR continued en route to Shawano Medical Center. EMS professionals were able to regain a pulse and respirations, and the man began speaking to them as they arrived at the hospital.
