Area fire departments upgrade their equipment

November 25, 2010

WOONSOCKET – Area EMTs have a new set of tools to assist them in responding to medical emergencies, following a round of training sessions on the latest protocols and standards issued recently by the Department of Health.
The new state guidelines that went into effect Nov. 1 allow trained and certified EMS Cardiac responders to apply higher level life support techniques when assisting patients with difficulty breathing, heart attack and other life-threatening medical conditions, according to Woonsocket Fire Department EMS Coordinator Steven Encarnation.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
