Spirit Emergency Medical Services weekly log
March 27 – April 2
According to Brian K. Hathaway, Spirit EMS president/CEO, Spirit handled 13 emergency medical dispatches from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office’s 911 dispatch center.
There were eight calls in the Houston EMS district, which includes Loramie and Washington Townships, including the village of Lockington, and excluding the village of Russia.
There were five 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, there were five transports to the hospital. Spirit received assistance from Russia Fire first responders on two of those calls and Shelby County deputies on three of the calls. One patient was pronounced deceased upon EMS arrival. One patient refused transport after being evaluated by EMS personnel. EMS personnel also assisted Houston, Lockington, and Russia firefighters at the scene of a barn fire, where no one was injured.
In the Perry Port Salem district, there were five calls in which Perry Port Salem Rescue and Spirit EMS were both dispatched, with Spirit EMS handling one of the calls. All five patients were transported to the hospital.
Of the 10 patients transported from the scene last week, two were taken to Upper Valley Medical Center in Troy; one to Kettering Health Piqua; and seven to Wilson Health.
Spirit EMS responded to 100% of its dispatches last week, including two back-up calls in the Houston district which required a second Spirit EMS unit to respond because the first ambulance was already out on another dispatch.
