A Big Milestone For ALA In Amador County

A Big Milestone For ALA In Amador County 

A big milestone for the American Legion Ambulance Service in Amador County. ALA has become the first in California to complete the Critical Care Emergency Medical Transport Program to improve the quality of care for critically ill patients. Under this program, paramedics are given specialized patient care training in areas including cardiac and pediatric care, to treat critically ill patients who need to be transported between facilities. This will help expedite these transports to get patients the care they need more quickly. The critical transport program requires a board certification and 202 hours of educational and clinical training that ALA paramedics Michelle Clark, Larry Petite, Tim Guzman and Dave Barstow completed from the University of Maryland during their free time, on nights and weekends. They received certification from the International Board of Specialty Care and accreditation through the regional Emergency Medical Services- Mountain Valley Emergency Medical Services Agency. Additionally, the ALA purchased a new bariatric ambulance that is specifically outfitted for the needs of very critical patients. With the addition of the new ambulance and four paramedics trained in critical care transport, the ALA can provide critical care transport at all hours of the day.
