Happy memorial day. Let us never forget.
Ada Liberty EMS would like to thank you for staying home and staying safe during these difficult times. We will all get through this together!
To The Residents of Ada and Liberty Township
As we continue to fight the spread of the COVID-19 Virus, I wanted to touch base with you again. The original guidelines of what to do if you think you are experiencing symptoms, calling you primary care physician or the Ohio dept of health hotline numbers as well as the joint number from Lima memorial and St Rita's mercy health systems are still the procedures to follow, Recently the CDC is recommending that you you wear a facial cover while out in public, this can be a home made cloth mask or as simple as a bandanna. These coverings do not replace social distancing they should be used together.
We encourage you to limit your travels away from home to only the necessities. Some stores are starting to limit the amount of shoppers they let in at one time and are encouraging you not to make shopping a family affair. As the weather improves it may be tougher to stay home, but the sooner we can stop the spread the faster we can return to our normal routine. The last thing we would want is our actions to cause these restrictions to linger on. Everyone Stay safe
To The Resident's of Ada and Liberty Township

Everything you need to know to prepare for, and protect yourself from Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
With the governor having declared a state of emergency due to the COVID-19 virus, or coronavirus, Ada EMS wants to provide you with resources.
Follow proper handwashing techniques and wash often, especially after using the restroom and before eating.
Avoid gathering in areas with large amounts of people whenever possible.
Avoid touching your face, mouth, and eyes.
Try to avoid physical contact, due to the possibility of virus transmission.
These are just a few standard precautions, visit the link below for further information about prevention as well as what to do if you may be infected. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a virus (more specifically, a coronavirus) identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China.
Although we've had a couple nice days, Ada EMS wants to remind everyone that it is still cold and flu season. Take extra precautions when out and about, making sure to always wash your hands after contact with others and to cover coughs and sneezes. Regular handwashing significantly cuts down the risk of contracting infections from others, when handwashing is not an option be sure to utilize hand sanitizers.
Visit the CDC article below for further information on how to protect yourself and others from the cold and flu. https://www.cdc.gov/features/rhinoviruses/index.html
Protect yourself and others from the common cold.
Please be safe and
With the cold weather here, we know heat is going to begin being turned on in homes. We want to make sure everyone is warm as well as safe!
When we turn our heat on, it comes with many risks. Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning, fires and cold and heat injuries are very commonly seen this time of year as well as motor vehicle collisions caused by severe weather. Carbon Monoxide is very serious and often called the "silent killer" because it cannot be smelled, seen or tasted. The only way to truly detect this chemical is by installing a special sensor, a cardon monoxide detector. Carbon monoxide poisoning is deadly, as are the many other winter related incidents we see. Please visit the link below, article "Stay Safe During & After a Winter Storm" from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, for more information.
Taking preventive action is your best defense against having to deal with extreme cold-weather conditions. By preparing your home and car in advance for winter emergencies, and by observing safety precautions during times of extremely cold weather, you can reduce the risk of weather-related health p...

We had a great first couple days of spring weather. This makes for more activity on the roadways especially motorcycles. LOOK TWICE!
Big Thank You to the ONU students that came to the station this weekend to help out with some spring chores. They cleaned and waxed the squad and helped with some other spring cleaning around the station.

In honor of Presidents Day here is a Brief History of EMS and the Presidents who were in office during some of the great milestones.
In 1966 President Lyndon B. Johnson received the report Accidental Death and Disability: The Neglected Disease of Modern Society, which identified accidental injuries as the “leading cause of death in the first half of life’s span.”
The report revealed that in 1965 alone, vehicle accidents killed more Americans than were lost in the Korean War. When evaluating prehospital emergency care, the report identified that “if seriously wounded … chances of survival would be better in the zone of combat than on the average city street.” Additionally, the report identified a lack of regulation or standards for ambulance operations or provider training......
The EMS profession has grown leaps and bounds in the past 50 years.
As a follow up from our previous cold weather post . Please do not leave your dogs or cats outside, if it's too cold for you then it's too cold for them. Please make arrangements for them.
With the next week forecasting to be another round of extreme weather for our area Ada EMS would like to share some tips on how to prepare.
*Look ahead at your medications will you need a refill soon? Refilling before the weather hits will help you avoid needing to get out if conditions are poor.
*Check your furnace or heaters. Make sure filters are changed and the area around them is clear.
*Do a winter prep on your vehicles always ask your mechanic for their recommendations but a good start is checking your antifreeze levels and battery connections.
*If you do need to travel in the temperatures being forecasted please be prepared. Make sure to have extra clothes hats, gloves and even a blanket in your vehicles. Bottled water is also a great thing to keep on hand. Having a fully charged cell phone battery is recommended for even the shortest trips out.
Update on Snow Levels
All Snow Level Emergencies will expire at 10AM January 21st for Hardin County.
Hardin County will stay on a level 2 for the over night.
Hardin County will remain on a Level 2 Snow Emergency throughout the night time hours. The State, County, Township and City/Village plow drivers have done a great job today but many of the side street and outlying county roads are ice covered and slippery. The wind is also supposed to pick up which will mean blowing and drifting roadways. Please use caution while driving if you must be out.
