It's with a heavy heart that we share the passing of Active Life Member and Fire Commisioner John Wicka. John was the rock and staple of our fire department. May you rest in peace brother John. We will take it from here.

Good evening, this is Melissa Hartman, Eden Town Supervisor. Governor Cuomo has issued an executive order beginning Sunday, March 22 at 8pm, for New York State residents to stay at home. This includes 100% of the workforce, unless you are deemed an essential employee. Essential businesses include grocery stores, food distributors, pharmacies, healthcare workers and medical suppliers. A more extensive list can be found at https://esd.ny.gov/. We ask that our residents adhere to these orders to protect essential workers and first responders. You will be able to leave your homes for food, medical supplies, pharmaceuticals, pet supplies, or take to care of family members who are unable to care for themselves. You are free to go outside, take a walk, or play with your children. But we ask that you maintain a safe distance from anyone outside of your immediate family.
These are extraordinary times for the Town of Eden, New York State, the United States of America, and the entire world. Because of this, we need to take extraordinary measures. Uncertainty can cause confusion and panic. We want you to know that our Town will persevere. We will work together to ensure the well-being of our friends and neighbors. Our amazing network of first responders and emergency services has been working hard over the last few weeks in preparation.
Additionally, we are asking everyone to take the time to check on your neighbors, especially seniors. If any resident needs food or pharmaceuticals and can’t leave home, or if you are an essential employee and in need of childcare, please call us at 716-992-3408 for assistance. If you suspect that you have COVID – 19 (coronavirus), please call your doctor. If you require emergency assistance, please call 911.
Unfortunately, I do not have any information regarding the duration of this order. I ask that we do our part to follow the guidelines provided and stay in our homes. For updates, please refer to our town website and pages. If there is an urgent matter, we will continue to utilize the code red system. Please take care of yourselves.

As first responders we have a duty to remain current and trained on this constantly changing pandemic which makes the limiting of gatherings interesting. The Town of Eden Emergency Management team has been in constant contact and we are updating our responders with any pertinent information as it becomes available.

The Public Safety Dispatch Centers have screening questions when processing EMS calls to help guide the responders if a patient we are responding to is a possible COVID-19 patient. We have procedures in place for responding to these calls that ensure our responders remain safe and healthy and our equipment can return in service as quickly as possible after each incident and proper cleaning.

To help yourself remain educated on this ever changing situation, follow the Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH) and Center for Disease Control (CDC) pages and websites.

http://www2.erie.gov/health/coronavirus - This site has dozens of resources to answer basically any question anyone might have regarding COVID-19 with particular attention to local specific questions.

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html - This site covers every medical question you might have regarding the Coronavirus, including an “if you think you are sick” button. Following the steps and procedures listed on this site will help keep you and everyone else safe and healthy.

https://public.coderedweb.com/CNE/en-US/BFDE645EDC69?fbclid=IwAR0A3ffRPj8mC-_dMIsqBFrs55ZCRsA53jLaSAueVxlV16b1pxCzc8OtHiE&isMobile=true - Sign up for code red notifications to ensure that you receive any emergent notifications specific to the Town of Eden or even your individual neighborhood.

Check in on your elderly neighbors and family members who may not have access to the internet as they may be missing out of obtaining accurate information that the CDC and ECDOH are providing in the links above.

Please follow the directives from our government officials as compliance with these directives is our best defense to stop the spread of COVID-19.

“My name is Lynn, I am a 46 year old Paramedic with the Eden Emergency and Rescue Squad. Please take a few minutes and read my story, it could happen to anyone and could have turned out very differently.

On Tuesday, June 25, 2019 I was volunteering with the Emergency Squad. When I transferred care to the staff at ECMC, I started having a stroke. The adrenaline, the heat of the moment and the thought of, no this can’t be happening to me, all played a part in me not admitting that I was having a stroke. My partners and I cleaned up and left the hospital en route back to Eden.

We were eastbound on Route 33, chatting with each other as we approached the highway. The left side of my mouth wasn’t moving, my left side of my face was tingling from the side of my eye down to my jaw. I started experiencing these symptoms while I was in the ER, transferring my patient. The symptoms were not going away. As we entered the thruway, I looked at Chris (driving, EMT) and told him there is something wrong. I told him I couldn’t move the left side of my mouth and the left side of my face was tingling. Chris was merging into traffic and asked me to clarify what I had told him. So I repeated it. At the next closest exit, Walden Ave, he exited the thruway, pulled to a safe place, and stopped. I questioned and protested the whole time. I wanted him to continue driving back to Eden. I wasn’t considering my long term health. He told me to get in the back of the ambulance. The rest of the crew had no idea why we had stopped. The crew jumped into action when Chris told them to start a stroke scale and get vitals on me.

Decisions on the best hospital for me were made with me giving my friends a hard time and not being the best, most cooperative patient. They are and were the most professional, compassionate, caring, and well-trained first responders. Because of their sound decisions, they had me at the hospital within 30 minutes of the onset of symptoms. I received needed tests and medications within an hour of the first symptoms. Due to our members’ training, recognition of stroke symptoms, and their quick and decisive actions, I have NO deficits. Once cleared by my doctors, in a few weeks, I will be back to all my activities including the Eden Emergency and Rescue Squad.

I wanted my story publicized because I want people to know that strokes can happen to anyone at any time. If in doubt, call 9-1-1 or seek immediate attention. Time is extremely important when the hospitals consider drug administration to counteract the symptoms of a stroke.”

Signs and Symptoms of Stroke

* Sudden weakness, paralysis or numbness
of the face, arm and leg on one or both
sides of the body.

* Sudden loss of speech or difficulty speaking or understanding speech.

* Sudden dimness or loss of vision, particularly in only one eye.

* Sudden unexplained dizziness (especially when associated with other neurologic symptoms), unsteadiness or sudden falls.

* Sudden severe headache and/or loss of consciousness.

If any of these symptoms are present, CALL 9-1-1 and seek medical help immediately.

For those of you who are in EMT class or anyone who's looking to supplement/ refresh some basic training, as we sit idle during these times, I'd suggest checking out EMSNation.org. Its based in NY, developed by a few medical directors, so its inline with our state protocols and is up to date, with the following posted from their site: * EMS Nation is a podcast for pre-hospital providers that integrates cutting edge evidence-based medicine as well as best practice in emergency medical services. Whether you're an EMT, Paramedic, Critical Care provider or even an EMS Medical Director - you will find content and a community that stimulates thought provoking conversation. We aim to provide nuanced points in resuscitation and resource limited medicine, that will not only improve your patient care but also hopefully your patient outcomes especially at the systems level. I highly recommend checking it out and consider adding it to your bookmarks as a free resource. Just need to provide an email, in order to get notifications for podcasts & updates.
I want to thank you all who responded earlier today for mom that had fallen. I know it’s your job but you all were so kind and wonderful easing my moms mind. Thank you so much for everything you do for our community. ❤️❤️
Just wanted to say Thank you to the EMT’s for coming to our aid on Thursday January 31 at the Shurfine! We are grateful for your service and care of my husband. Bless you all
Great job on the 50th annual installation dinner Kate Wastl !
You guys have come to my house a few times for my husband over the last couple years and I just want to sincerely thank you for always taking such great care of him and making him comfortable. You were just here recently but the time I really need to thank you for is a couple months ago he had 6 seizures within 4-5 hours and you responded quickly and were amazing at working to get them under control by the time we got to the hospital. You allowed me to not only ride along but to help calm him down when he began to put up a little fight because he didn't know where he was or who you were. I have family in the squad in North Collins and know the tough job you have and just want you to know how appreciated you all are for everything you do and for having some of the best bedside manner and professionalism along with knowing how to cheer people up and calm patients and their family members down. My husband expresses gratitude every time we need you and even when we don't. Keep up the great work and thank you for your dedication to our community!!
On Tuesday 9/12, very early morning- 12am. I called 911 for a 4 year old having raspy breathing. It seemed like only moments passed before help arrived, the guys who arrived were so kind and so caring to my little one. Unfortunately she's so used to trips to the ER or ambulance rides that she was not concerned at all.😄 As a mom thought I always mildly freak out. I truly cannot say enough for how wonderful they are. PS. You were correct. It was croup 😰
My sincere condolences to Peter's family and the Eden Emergency Squad. I remember Peter as a leader and genuine person. His contributions to EMS and Eden will long be remembered. Rest In Peace Peter, your work here is done.....those you have influenced will carry on with saddened hearts but strong efforts thanks to your leadership.
