EMS COMPLETES VENT CERTIFICATION

EMS COMPLETES VENT CERTIFICATION
25+ Paramedics of the Cumberland County Emergency Medical Services recently
completed the program to receive their Vent Certification. Taught by Vanderbilt
Lifeflight, the program included a week long class and an 8 hour clinical in the Intensive
Care Unit at Cookeville Regional Medical Center.

Cumberland County is the only county in the Upper Cumberland with a vent unit facility,
Wyndridge Health and Rehabilitation. With this facility location Cumberland County has
a higher need to transport patients that are vent dependent. This valuable vent
certification will allow the County’s Paramedics to safely and effectively transport critical
and non-critical patients.

The Upper Cumberland Health Coalition assisted in purchasing the transport vent
equipment for the Cumberland County EMS vehicles.

EMS RECEIVES DONATION

EMS RECEIVES DONATION FROM CARDIAC PULMONARY REHABILITATION ALUMNI
Cumberland County Cardiac Pulmonary Rehabilitation Alumni, Inc. presents Cumberland
County Mayor Allen Foster and EMS Director Chris Miller a check for $2,475.00. This amount
is made up of $2,250 from a Volunteer Energy Cooperative Customer Share Program Grant
which was submitted by CCCPRA and a $225.00 donation from CCCPRA.

The donation will be used to significantly upgrade 3 Cumberland County EMS trucks with the
latest technology in VIDEO LARYNGOSCOPE. These video units help patients’ breath while
being transported and give EMS personnel real time video of any obstructions. These
recordings then give emergency room personnel a better picture of a patients’ condition upon
arrival.

The Cumberland County Cardiac Pulmonary Alumni, Inc. is making an appeal for tax exempt
donations to purchase 9 additional units ($7,425). This will provide units for all 12 EMS
trucks. If you would like more information on how to help this organization, please contact
C.C.C.P.R.A, Inc., P.O. Box 14, Crossville TN 38557 or text Linda Trotter at 931-445-4450.
