Emergency Medical Dispatch provides prompt and accurate processing of calls requesting emergency medical assistance. Multiple counties use our services and we are able to provide medical assistance instructions to callers. Many of these callers come from rural areas and have to wait for extended amounts of time for an ambulance to arrive. These instructions can mean the difference in the life or death of the patient. The presentation will give an overview of the job of an emergency medical dispatcher, the requirements of the job, and the assistance we provide. We will include statistics of callers who we were able to assist by giving instructions in various types of scenarios.
