EMS hoping for good news on grant request
Placeholder Image
Warren County EMS applied in September for a grant to purchase a patient loading system for each of its eight ambulances.Warren County EMS director Brian Jennings submitted a quarterly report to County Executive John Pelham stating, “As of this month, we still haven’t received any confirmation that we have been awarded the funds, but it does look promising with all the information that’s being requested from FEMA.”The patient loading system is a Power-LOAD power-loading cot fastener system. The system should reduce the risk of injuries when loading and unloading cots to and from ambulances. This should reduce spinal loads and the risk of cumulative trauma injuries, according to the Power-LOAD brochure.Operator injuries result from repetitive spinal loading.
