Monthly update from the Three Forks Area Ambulance Service

From the Three Forks Area Ambulance Service
Three Forks Area Ambulance had a very busy July. We responded to 45 emergency calls. We are at 185 emergency calls since January 1,2023.
TFAA transported 12 of these calls to Bozeman Deaconess Hospital. TFAA EMTs and Crew Members assisted Med Air and AMR on several critical calls.
TFAA EMTs responded to a variety of calls and were able to check folks out without the need to transport and we staged several times for Law Enforcement. This made up most of the emergency responses.
The BIG NEWS is the completion of the ARPA FUND CONTRACT with Gallatin County. These funds will purchase the big equipment items for the new ambulance and pay the 10% matching funds to the Department of Transportation on the ambulance grant. The DOT grant for a new ambulance was awarded in late October of 2021. TFAA is hopeful that delivery of the new ambulance will be this November.
Three Forks Area Ambulance will be holding a silent auction at First Security Bank. The painting is by our own TFAA EMT Michelle Bodenheimer. Stop by and see this beautiful work of art. All the proceeds will go toward upgrading some of our current radios and the purchase of new handheld radios. This will improve our ability to communicate with all emergency agencies involved on a 911 call and will be compatible with our new 911 system in Gallatin County.
Later this month our EMTs will be training on Medications and Airway support.
Don’t forget to check out the T. F. Voice for the EMT of the week!
Hope to see everyone come out to the Farmers Market on August 24th for Walking Tacos. All proceeds will go toward the much-needed handheld radios.
All of us at TFAA want to thank the community for their continued support.
