Costume safety tips for a Safe Halloween

* Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers.
* When selecting a costume, make sure it is the right size to prevent trips and falls.
* Incorporate a face mask into your child's costume to avoid spread germs.

When you reach out to 911 in an emergency, a team is there helping you, but you'll never see all they are doing for you. That voice at the other end of 911 belongs to a professional who is gathering information and coordinating the resources needed to address your emergency. These fine folks are managing phone calls (sometimes dozens at a time), multiple radios, maps, computer systems, and personnel from all of the various responding agencies to make sure you get the help you need. Public Safety Telecommunicators are the lifeline of the community, and for those of us coming to its aid.

We are happy to recognize our own 'Gold Line' Public Safety Telecommunicators from Elko Central Dispatch Administrative Authority during this week. Please join us in celebrating National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week!

Today Sergeant Ben Jenkins was memorialized in a moving ceremony. He leaves a wonderful legacy as a father and public servant.
Elko County Ambulance Service is proud that Ben Jenkins served on our service. For over 10 years he served Elko County as an EMT Intermediate. We have spoken to many EMTs who worked with him and we've heard great heartwarming stories and some funny ones too. He has not worked as an EMT recently but has always been an ally to the Service.
Rest in Peace Ben

Minutes matter: don’t put your heart health on hold during COVID-19

Great article about major health issues and not putting off a serious illness because of COVID-19. Call 911 for serious illnesses and seek medical treatment. Don't ignore signs of stroke, heart attack, or other serious illness.

When a heart attack strikes, every minute matters. In fact, the first few minutes are critical in determining the short-term and long-term outcome for the patient. While the world continues

From an NHP Reference;

For those of you that would like to welcome Sgt. Ben Jenkins back into town, we are going to go with flashlights and get set up at the Golden Gate Sinclair off the 298 exit coming into Elko about 1930 (7:30 pm.). They are going to exit the 298, take Airport road to Idaho Street, then on to 12 Street to go to Burns Funeral Home. If you are able, please have a American Flag. You can let anyone you think would like to join us know what the plan is for families and friends. The driving procession will probably be emergency vehicles only.
My son was driving a small convertible and struck a wild horse outside of Wells, Nevada. The horse was thrown directly into my sons face and then through the top of the car - landing behind it. A wonderful crew from Elko County Ambulance Services responded to the scene. My son was not in good shape and had multiple brain hemorrhages and hematomas, multiple severe and significant facial fractures including laForte 111, his neck was cut open by the frame of his convertible top, his spine was broken, his skull was fractured, his neck had fractures and he was not expected to survive. This amazing crew was there to give aid to my son and worked with REACH to get my son stable and flown to Intermountain Hospital in Utah. This crew helped to save my sons life! If I could give these heroes a personal THANK YOU EVERY single day - I would! We are forever in their debt!
