We would like to announce our King Vision aBlade Video Laryngoscopes that we have recently added to our inventory. These devices help out in several important ways, They make it easier on the patient by reducing the trauma can sometimes comes with intubation by making the process easier on the EMS provider to accomplish. They increase the success rate for intubations. The actual blade part that contacts the patient is disposable, helping reduce chances of either the patient or provider possibly being exposed to an illness.
We started our Outstanding Performer of the Month in November 2023. Our first winner is Brad Brown , AEMT from Team 1. Each month another employee is nominated from each shift, and a winner is chosen based on work performance. At the end of the year a winner will be randomly chosen from those 12 individuals and they will win a 2 night stay at their choice of either the Park Vista Hotel in Gatlinburg or the Black Fox Lodge in Pigeon Forge.
Local police, news crews, and federal agencies have begun using drones to fight crime and gather the news.

After recent changes in CDC guidance as well as state and local relaxing of coronavirus response our stations are now reopened to the public. Payments can no longer be taken here at our station unless the bill is for a transport from 2021 or earlier. Newer bills must be paid to our billing company. The number for them is 844-889-7701. Patients having certain symptoms will be asked to wear a mask, and our crews will also be wearing a mask as well.
We now have AutoPulse unit on all our main trucks. These devices automatically perform high quality CPR compressions, freeing the crew to handle other important jobs.
Recently, we added internet service on our ambulances which allows crews to send 12 lead ECG's to ERs. We also started using new software for creating trip tickets on our laptops and tablets. There are more things happening soon, so stay tuned!
We have installed a new monument at our main station in Stoney Creek honoring all the people that have volunteered for this organization past and present. We certainly appreciate them sacrificing their time and energy to help us and the people of Carter County out over the years. We couldn't have gotten here without them.
