|Subject:||Emergency Medical Services for Children Day - May 18, 2016|
This Friday, I plan to introduce a resolution that would designate May 18, 2016, as Emergency Medical Services for Children Day in Pennsylvania.
Emergency Medical Services for Children supports EMS, the community-based public service whose presence is vital to children in need. It is important to understand that the emergency care of children is different than the emergency care of adults in medical emergencies. Emergency Medical Services for Children assists in the implementation of training for use of advanced technical equipment and services in preparation to save the life of a child. They also work with emergency physicians, emergency nurses, social workers, psychologists, rescue personnel, EMTs, paramedics, pre-hospital nurses, air medical personnel, emergency medical responders, emergency vehicle operators, firefighters, police officers, educators, dispatchers, administrators and others to identify and address the issues surrounding the provision of optimal pediatric care.
Please join me in recognizing and honoring the Emergency Medical Services for Children.
