Spirit Emergency Medical Services weekly log
March 6 – 12
According to Brian K. Hathaway, Spirit EMS president/CEO, Spirit handled eight emergency medical dispatches from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office’s 911 dispatch center.
There were four calls in the Houston EMS district, which includes Loramie and Washington Townships, including Lockington, but excluding Russia.
Four dispatches were in the Perry Port Salem district, which includes all of Salem and Perry Townships, including Port Jefferson, Hathaway reported.
In the Houston district, one patient was transported, and three others refused transport after being evaluated by the EMS crew.
In the Perry Port Salem district, there were four calls in which Perry Port Salem Rescue and Spirit EMS were both dispatched; Spirit EMS handled three of the four calls. In one case, the EMS crew was called to the scene of a structure fire but was disregarded before arriving, Hathaway said. In the remaining three cases, all patients refused transport to the hospital after being evaluated by the EMS crew.
The sole patient transported from the scene last week was taken to Upper Valley Medical Center in Troy.
Spirit EMS responded to 100% of its dispatches last week.
