"First Responder through Paramedic, we have you covered!"

Effective December 9, 2017, the ambuances are moved over at the new building. Everything else will be moved over the next two weeks so that the complete process will be open there.

Pictures of this new building will be put up in a few days as most of the things are moved over and set up completely. Space for the inservice training and kitchen area is at least 8 times bigger than the space Dr. Coleman has provided to us for years at his old office. He has helped us to a lot in time.

Robert "Stacy" Wiggin was just recognized for obtaining his new NREMT. This will provide us for more help from him in Pamplico Rescue Squad.

Welcome new member Travis Brunson, Paramedic. He is meeting with others here he has worked with at other places, and will be able to help us cover a volunteer unit more here.

Welcome Richard Smith as a new member. He is a Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).

The load for 2016 was 462 total calls, of which were 267 emergency calls. Many of these had more than one patient. There were a lot of non-emergent calls turned over to us starting in the last 6 months when the private transports could no longer get everyone. The total call number is going up so fast, we may have to get a fourth ambulance..
2016 - 462
2015 - 260
2014 - 256
2013 - 191
2012 - 149
2011 - 170
2010 - 163
2009 - 129

Two of the three units out at the ER  running  simultaneous calls

With the aging of our second out unit, we have purchased a newer unit to take its place and move it down to third out. This will put us back to 3 units. We had dropped down to 2 as the call load lowered with the county unit here. With the current call load increase for us, that has placed additional wear and tear on the existing units. This gives us a spare in case one is needed while another is out for repairs, or worst case, three responding units.

Of the calls we run, 70% are ALS, requiring a paramedic. Overall call load is showing a 12% increase since last year.

For the Pamplico response area, our patients are  43.6% female, 54.9% male, and the average age is 54.5.

We are receiving insurance payments for emergency calls that are run. These funds are for building our new headquarters, and also to help the members defray some of their expenditures to support the squad.  Only insurance is billed, not the patient.
