Spirit Emergency Medical Services weekly log
According to Brian K. Hathaway, Spirit EMS president/CEO, Spirit EMS responded to 12 emergency medical dispatches from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office 911 dispatch center. That’s three more than the week prior.
Nine of the 12 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 four dispatches in the Perry Port Salem district, which includes all of Salem and Perry townships including the village of Port Jefferson.
In total, 10 patients were transported to the hospital from nine emergency scenes in the Houston district. One scene was an injury accident which Spirit responded to with two ambulances to the scene. Care Flight responded and transported one patient, while Spirit EMS took the other patient. Also assisting Spirit EMS at this scene were Houston firefighters, Shelby County deputies and troopers from the Piqua Post of the Ohio State Patrol.
In the Perry Port Salem district, both Spirit EMS and Perry Port Salem Rescue were dispatched to three calls. Spirit EMS responded to all three calls, while Perry Port Salem Rescue responded to one. One patient refused transport after an evaluation by EMS personnel, while two others were transported.
Of the 12 patients transported last week, four were transported to Upper Valley Medical Center in Troy, three to Kettering Health in Piqua, three to Wilson Health, and one to Miami Valley Hospital via Care Flight.
Spirit EMS responded to 100% of its dispatches last week.
