The greatest probability for severe thunderstorms today is in southern portions of our area, but severe weather is certainly possible across the north as well. The primary threat from these storms is damaging winds and localized flooding from torrential rains.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!!

Accidental 911 calls are becoming more common. In fact they can account for as much as 20% of monthly call volume! These calls take dispatchers away from responding to actual emergencies. Here are some tips on what to do if you do accidentally dial 911 and things you can do to help prevent you from accidentally calling 911!

TIPS IF YOU ACCIDENTALLY DIAL 911

-DONT HANG UP!! You are not in trouble!! We have protocols in place that we must follow to ensure there is not an emergency.

- Speak to the dispatcher and answer their questions. If you hang up, the dispatcher will have to call back to try and ensure there is no emergency. This can take a long time and take them away from other emergency calls.

TIPS ON PREVENTING ACCIDENTAL 911 CALLS

- Avoid putting your phone in a tight space such as a cup holder. By holding down the power and volume buttons it can trigger an emergency call.

- Avoid putting your phone in your pocket while mowing the lawn, using a jet ski, or a golf cart where the phone can freely bounce around. By pressing the power button 5 times in a row it can trigger an emergency call.

- Avoid letting small children play with your phone unattended. Even an old phone without a sim card can still dial 911!

- Iwatches often times will dial 911 through certain hand motions or through putting them on a charger.

- Check your phones settings to see how your device handles emergency call outs. IPhone settings refer to it at "Emergency SOS"

Tim was a thirty year veteran of the Door County Sheriffโ€™s Office. Over Timโ€™s career he touched the lives of so many individuals within the Sheriffโ€™s Office and our community.

Memorial Day is a time to honor those who have given their lives during military service to our country.

Since 1900, more than 35 million men and women have served in World War I, World War II, Korea, Viแป‡t Nam, the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan, Iraq, and unnamed military engagements. More than half a million of them gave their lives in the name of freedom.

Memorial Day is a day to reflect the ultimate sacrifice many in our country made, some being in our own families and friends, and whose lives and deaths became the measure of their commitment to the United States of America.

As you prepare to spend time with your crew and/or family during this Memorial Day weekend, Door County EMS recognizes the brave women and men who made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of this great nation.

May 16-22 2021 National EMS Week
The department would like to extend its sincerest gratitude to our Paramedics, AEMTs, EMTs, and our office staff for their dedication to the community.
Our county has 177 EMRs that serve on 11 different departments from the county line to Washington Island. These EMRs are vital to the EMS system in our county by providing lifesaving skills in minutes and being a familiar face to their neighbors during their time of need.
The department also extends our appreciation to all county Fire Departments, Law Enforcement agencies, Dispatchers, DNR, Coast Guard, and DCMC ER staff. The ability of our department to deliver the highest level of patient care only happens because of the teamwork of all of Door Countyโ€™s Public Safety personnel.
The theme for EMS week this year is โ€œcaring for our community.โ€ COVID provided significant challenges to all of our staff and EMRs for the past year. Regardless of the challenge, our personnel once again met these challenges head on with one goal: provide the highest level of patient care possible.
During the past year our mission expanded from emergency response to assisting the Public Health Department with administering flu and COVID vaccinations. These vaccination clinics were held at our Sturgeon Bay station and required 15 off-duty Paramedics, EMTs, and EMRs. The teamwork with Public Health, Emergency Management, Facilities and Parks, and the Volunteer Coalition allowed us to lead the state in percentage vaccinated.
Our personnel have proven time and time again they are ready for any emergency our community faces.
Have a great EMS week.
Director Aaron LeClair

It will be kind of fun today ... walked around the DCMS yesterday back today at 4 to 6 pm. Hope to see all the parks people back checking out their new home base [parks with it's people, rolling stock, cleaning and security trucks, trailers, mowers, and cleaning supplies is no longer at the Door County Cherryland airport]. Begs the question where edoes one go to aquire a county boat launch seasonal ticket? Have to drag the boat on a trailer over to the office. Office might be at the DCMS or the Gov. Building by the library ...?? Need parking space ... I'd say DCMS building. Best guess. And I guessw we'll do away with the parks sign at the airport.
