Spirit Emergency Medical Services weekly log

Oct. 23-29

According to Brian K. Hathaway, Spirit EMS president/CEO, Spirit EMS responded to 11 emergency medical dispatches from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office 911 dispatch center. That’s two more than the week prior.

Seven of the 11 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.

Six patients were transported to the hospital from scenes in the Houston district. There were no injuries at the scene of a structure fire to which Lockington, Houston, Russia, and Sidney firefighters along with Shelby County deputies responded to. Spirit EMS provided rehab and standby coverage at the scene.

In the Perry Port Salem district, both Spirit EMS and Perry Port Salem Rescue were dispatched to four calls. Spirit EMS responded to all four calls, while Perry Port Salem Rescue responded to one. Anna Rescue was sent to handle a call due to radio transmission issues the Spirit crew experienced. Anna Rescue transported that patient to the hospital.

Three patients were transported to the hospital, while the other scene was a structure fire in Pemberton which Spirit EMS and Perry Port Salem Rescue provided standby and rehab coverage for firefighters from Quincy, Port Jefferson, Rosewood, Fletcher, Lockington, Anna and Jackson Center along with deputies from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.

Of the nine patients transported last week, three were transported to Upper Valley Medical Center in Troy, five were transported to Wilson Health and one to Kettering Health in Piqua.

Spirit EMS responded to 100% of its dispatches last week.
