December was again a busy month. TFAA responded to 26 calls. 15 of these were transports to Bozeman Deaconess Hospital.
5 of these hospital transports we were assisted by AMR paramedics due to the severity of the calls.
The rest of the calls were refusals, cancelled prior to arrival, and standbys for athletic events at the Three Forks High School.
Total calls for 2023 were over 300 emergency responses. We are experiencing major growth and with growth comes more emergency calls!
Three Forks Ambulance crew members did receive a break from responding for a straight 8 days (from 12/21 to 12/28) with no calls.
This is unusual to go that many days without a call, but we were happy no one needed our services over the Christmas Holiday!
In December the TFAA Crew participated in a Narcan refresher and began our State Quality Improvement Project under the guidance of Riesa Overstreet RN.
Three Forks Area Ambulance NEEDS more folks to step up and VOLLUNTEER!
We will be offering a Red Cross Emergency Medical Responder Course starting in mid-February. The EMR course is 56 hours classroom and 10 hours of practical hands-on training.
These classes will be held in the evenings and 2 weekend days. Later in the year we will offer an Emergency Medical Technician Course.
Three Forks Ambulance will also be offering community classes in late spring and summer. Stay tuned for more information to come.
We will try our best to keep the cost down for these classes and the QUALITY of TRAINING HIGH!
