Foundation Provides Grant for Volunteer EMS Providers

Posted on: September 19, 2017

Volunteer emergency medical services (EMS) providers in the Passavant Area Hospital service area are receiving a boost in their efforts to provide the best pre-hospital care to their patients. Pam Martin, executive director of the Passavant Foundation, announced today a $35,000 grant from the Foundation to seven local, volunteer EMS agencies for recruitment and training. Grant recipients include EMS providers in Arenzville, Chapin, Meredosia-Bluffs, Murrayville-Woodson, South Jacksonville, Winchester and Waverly. "The grant funds will be distributed in two parts. The first $2,500 will cover tuition, books and fees of volunteers enrolled in emergency medical technician/responders classes, with the second $2,500 used for the agency's greatest need, whether it be additional class training or the purchase of training equipment," said Martin. "Passavant is committed to provide continuing education for our first responder agencies and the Foundation is pleased to support this commitment." The grant will help the EMS providers in Passavant’s service area standardize training across all agencies. "As we integrate our existing EMS system with the Memorial Health System EMS system, it's important that we all follow the same guidelines," said Travis Wilson, Passavant’s assistant EMS coordinator. "This training will ensure that, plus strengthen our relationship with the agencies." Passavant provides emergency medical technician/responder classes for area agencies. The next series of classes starts in early 2018.
