According to Brian K. Hathaway, Spirit EMS president/CEO, Spirit EMS responded to 10 emergency medical dispatches from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office 911 dispatch center. That’s four more than the week prior.
Eight of the 10 calls were in the Houston EMS district which includes Loramie and Washington Townships including the village of Lockington and excluding the village of Russia. There were two dispatches in the Perry Port Salem district, which includes all of Salem and Perry Townships including the village of Port Jefferson.
In the Houston district, seven of the eight patients were transported to the hospital. One patient refused transport after being evaluated by EMS personnel. Shelby County deputies assisted Spirit EMS at the scene of one call.
In the Perry Port Salem district, both Spirit EMS and Perry Port Salem Rescue were dispatched to two calls. Both EMS agencies responded on both calls, with Perry Port Salem Rescue transporting one patient to the hospital. The other patient refused transport after an evaluation by EMS personnel.
Eight patients were transported to the hospital last week with one being taken to Upper Valley Medical Center in Troy and seven to Wilson Health.
Spirit EMS responded to 100% of its dispatches last week.
