Membership Meeting / Trauma Triage — June 2014

At the June Meeting of the NORTHEAST OHIO MEDICAL RESERVE CORPS (NEOMRC) we will be presenting “Trauma / Triage”.

EMS CEUs will be awarded.  In addition this presentation we will be discussing other NEOMRC business.  The date of the meeting is Thursday 06/26/2014 and will take place from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM.

The meeting will be held at the Kent State University Campus in Twinsburg.  This facility is located at 2745 Creekside Drive, Twinsburg, Ohio 44087.

Membership Meeting / CPR — May 2014

At the request of many members and because BIKE MS Pedal to the Point is closely approaching, we have put together a CPR class that will take place on Thursday May 22, the CPR class will cost five dollars per person however, the Northeast Ohio Medical Reserve Corps will pay the five dollar per person fee for members that are current on their dues for 2014. Other members that are not current on their dues will have to pay five dollars for the CPR class or pay their $20 dues for the year. The class will be open to all who wish to attend based on the above criteria.

The other issue at hand is that this is normally a more than a four hour class and Patty has graciously agreed to supply the instructors and we will be able to squeeze it into three hours but it is absolutely imperative that everyone be there at 6 o’clock sharp to start. We cannot have people late and or leaving early as she is doing us a big favor in making this happen in a three hour time frame.

This will be held at the Kent State University Campus in Twinsburg.  This facility is located at 2745 Creekside Drive, Twinsburg, Ohio 44087.

Please RSVP to T.J. Powell so that we make sure we have enough supplies, etc.

See you all there!

NEOMRC Updates

Dear NEOMRC members and other interested parties,

First – the March membership meeting in CANCELLED.

As you may be aware already, the Emergency Department at Solon Medical Center was converted to an urgent care center and the EMS department was shut down. With the organizational changes there, we lost our venue to hold meetings, our storage area, and most importantly our medical control. For the beginning of this year, we have been working on moving our operations to another facility. To that end, there are some back end changes:

Our medical control is now provided through Lake Health system and Dr. Howard Mell. Patty Willson is the EMS Coordinator for Lake Health and will be replacing the functions John Dunn provided for us over the years. I also want to take this opportunity to thank John for all the work he did and help he provided us at Solon – all of which was done above and beyond his functions at the hospital. Without him, we wouldn’t still be here today. If you see John, take a moment to tell him “thank you.”

What this means to NEOMRC and you:

  1. We are moving to a new location to hold our monthly meetings. We have been talking to Kent State University about holding our meeting in their new Regional Academic Center in Twinsburg, OH at I-480 and S.R. 91. Unfortunately, they are out of the office for spring break this week, so the March meeting is CANCELLED.
  2. We have a new medical control. We are in the process of working out the specifics surrounding any required protocol changes and we hope to cover this in our April meeting (Thursday, April 25th.) Until a formal protocol document is provided, continue to follow the Regional Physician Advisory Board EMT-B published suggested protocols for any NEOMRC activities.
  3. All members will be required to complete the hands-only CPR training provided by Lake Health. Dates will be published. We’d also like to enlist NEOMRC members to assist in training future hands only CPR classes that Lake Health is providing to the general public.
  4. We still have events upcoming and will be sending out an e-mail shortly asking for volunteers to help us provide the same first responder services we have in the past.

If you have any questions/comments/concerns – please don’t hesitate to reach out to one of the officers.
