Started in 1974, by President Gerald Ford, the National EMS Week honors those people who serve others across this great country. Emergency Medical Services has grown from the days of first aid and rapid transport to a hospital, to an integrated team approach of highly trained professionals, equipped with the latest technology and medicine. They answer the call to duty... and respond to your worst day, in the worst of conditions, risks and other impossible challenges. Day and night, these wonderful rescuers come to the aid of all of us who call 911, regardless of situation or status. Young, old or in-between, it doesn’t matter who calls, they are there to help you through any crisis. Their dedication to serve is paramount in the provision of community service. How may you show your appreciation for their selfless service? A simple smile and wave as they pass by in the ambulance works wonders. Your expression of thanks can make their difficult tasks sustainable. That they will yet again get up in the middle of the night, to hold the hand of an aging senior, calm the fears of an injured child or simply show kindness to you or your family while rendering medical care during transport to the hospital. We, the people of your local EMS providers, thank you for the privilege and honor of serving such a wonderful and supportive community. There is no greater joy than what is found when helping others.

During last week’s epic storm, the Cambria Community Healthcare District responded to a total of 17 incidents with six types of transports. Five of the 17 calls, were into San Luis Ambulance response areas outside our District. At several different times on Thursday the 28th, all but two of the 18 ambulances staffed in San Luis Obispo County from the... hours of 8 AM and 8 PM were assigned to some type of emergency. On Thursday, the CCHD was requested to send one of its units to Arroyo Grande to assist with coverage before being rerouted for a 911 call in the Morro Bay area. During this time, the other District ambulance was also running calls in the Morro Bay area. Per SLO County emergency management protocols, San Luis Ambulance moved an ambulance to the summit of SR 46 for coverage in the Cambria area. The District up staffed Medic 12 from a 12-hour unit to a 24-hour unit to join Medic 11 (a 24-hour ambulance) for the first two days of the storm. During this time, both units responded to a variety of calls from medical aid, to standing by while Cambria Fire and Cal Fire dealt with downed power lines including one across a home that led to a small fire, to standing by for a water rescue of a person who was stuck on top of his car after driving into a flooded area. In addition to a big shout out to our crews who worked tirelessly, District management and the Board of Directors gives a special thank you to the Creekside Inn for working with CCHD to provide sleeping arrangements for the extra crew members who were on duty.
