ALS Assist Class, March 2015
On Wednesday March 18, 2015, volunteers of the Hamilton Volunteer Rescue Squad had the valuable opportunity to take part in an in-station, Advanced Life Support (ALS) Assist training session. Paramedic Tim Ward described a number of common ALS scenarios and explained what team members could do to aid a medic on scene with each of the interventions. Topics ranged from IV and nebulizer setup to blood sugar check, blood tubes transfer, ECG electrodes placement, and drug administration and assist.
Our dedicated volunteers continuously add to their already strong knowledge base and proactively learn new skills in order to provide the town of Hamilton and the surrounding communities with the highest quality medical care.
