Community Partnership of Titusville Fire Department and Parrish Medical Center Results in Dedication of New E.M.S. Training Lab Facility at Titusville Fire Headquarters Building



L-R: EMS Chief Bob Allard, PMC Marketing Director Natalie Sellers, Fire Chief Chuck Bogle





Fire Chief Chuck Bogle and EMS/Training Chief Bob Allard presided over the formal dedication of the department's new EMS (emergency medical services) training laboratory.  Fire Chief Bogle presented Natalie Sellers, Marketing Director of Parrish Medical Center, with an engraved plaque.  "We want to recognize Parrish Medical Center for the vital contribution they continue to make in improving the medical services of our community," said Fire Chief Bogle.  He further commented, "It is the continuing partnership between our two agencies that has made this emergency medical training lab a reality.  The medical equipment that is on display was purchased through PMC's generosity and commitment."

Ms. Sellers responded, "Titusville Fire and Emergency Services is a vital link in addressing the medical needs of our community and we are proud of the partnership that we have forged with you.  On behalf of Parrish Medical Center, we want to thank you for this recognition, for the service you provide to the citizens of our community, and the joint relationships we have enjoyed over the years."

EMS/Training Chief Allard remarked, "This facility will now enable us to continuously update and evaluate our emergency personnel in the area of critical trauma skills and advanced cardiac patient recognition.  EMS training had been conducted by our department to continually maintain the state standards and requirements for emergency responders.  The equipment and dedication of this facility enhances our ability to conduct hands-on skills training in-house through the use of pediatric and adult patient simulators.  It will aid us in providing advanced trauma skills such as surgical cricothyrotomy, plural decompression and intra-osseous access; acute cardiac care via 12-lead EKG recognition for Acute Coronary Syndrome STEMI (s-t elevation myocardio infarction) which coincides with our joint efforts with PMC in their endeavors to acquire emergency heart cathetorization certification; and other field emergencies experienced such as obstetrics, neurological assessment, as well as lung and heart sound auscultation.

"We are taking the excellent level of service already in place and providing our personnel with the resources they need to continue to display a high level of expertise in the care of our community members during their medical emergencies," says Chief Allard.
