The Johnston-Grimes Metropolitan Fire Department's EMS Division operates out of three fire stations. All of our first out ambulances have Stryker Power Pro cots, Lifepak 15 heart monitors, and identical medical equipment and bags. Each ALS engine carries a Lifepak 12 heart monitors which allow the engine crew to capture a 12-lead, defibrillate, or cardiovert a patient prior to the ambulance arriving. Our Service uses ePCR which allows us to utilize an iPad to complete our reports. Each station has a U-Cap-It vending machine to provide a high level of security to our medications.
Our Medical Director is Dr. Sydney Leach from Mercy Medical Center. She has streamlined our system into having one set of protocols and standard operating guidelines. She is active in our service and provides case review and refresher training to our staff.
