The Malta & McConnelsville Fire Department established it's Emergency Care Service in the 1930's with very minimal equipment and training. Training consisted of basic first aid.
In December 1972 the fire department created the EMS division to provide this service to the citizens of Morgan County. The department responded with more training and purchased equipment to meet these challenges of saving lives and continues today to provide this training and equipment. Today the advanced life support vehicles coupled with the dedicated professional paramedics, intermediates, and basics respond to this challenge.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies, including heart attack or near drowning, in which someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped.
Basic First Aid is for individuals who require or desire elementary first aid knowledge and skills with a focus on adults, children, or both.
American Safety & Health Institute’s Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) program was created to train emergency personnel to recognize cardiopulmonary emergencies (including cardiac arrest and peri-arrest conditions) and other medical emergencies.
American Safety & Health Institute’s Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) program was created to provide healthcare professionals with training in the recognition and treatment of conditions that may lead to cardiopulmonary arrest in an infant or child.
The Child and Babysitting Safety training program is designed to focus on supervising, caring for, and keeping children and infants safe in babysitting settings. The program provides fundamental information in the business of babysitting, proper supervision, basic caregiving skills, and responding properly to ill or injured children or infants.
The M&M Fire Department holds monthly EMS CEU’s that are always open to the EMS community. These classes are generally one to two hours in length on various topics.
