IT’S OFFICIAL!!!

Nottoway County Emergency Squad, Inc. is outfitted with sensory kits we made! Today Ainsley delivered the sensory bags to them. If you hadn’t heard, we created Sensory Kits by way of generous donations for area rescue squads so that they can assist individuals with autism, who can become easily overwhelmed during emergency situations and while interacting with first responders. Sensory Kits include a weighted lap pad, noise canceling headphones, sensory fidget toys, and sunglasses.

Delivering them went well too! We went to the Rescue Squad and when we were there the tones went off. If you’ve never been in a rescue squad or a fire department, they are really loud!!! Ainsley started walking backwards but covered her ears and stood against the wall until they were over. No screaming, no running away, she handled it and moved on. I was impressed of the progress she has made. And then she posed for a picture! Projects like this work, they provide autism awareness and resources for others like us and are great opportunities for her to practice skills! If you know of a rural rescue squad that would benefit from Sensory Kits, please let us know!

Thanks for being inclusive Nottoway Rescue! 🚑 ❤️
Thank you and congratulations to Nottoway County Emergency Squad, Inc. for their recent purchase of a PL Custom Medallion 170” ambulance mounted on a Ford E450 chassis.

We wanted to share some of our statistics with everybody for the month of June. We were requested a total of 192 times for emergencies. From the time we were dispatched to the time a truck got on the road was an average of only 1:57. On average, it took our trucks 9:21 from the time they were requested to the time they got to the scene. Our IV success rate was 90%. We transported patients to Farmville 63% of the time, South Hill 20% of the time, and Richmond hospitals 17% of the time. We were able to cover 7 mutual aid requests for other agencies. And our most requested reason for June was abdominal pain and chest pain.

We are proud of all the hard work our providers have put in over the past month to better our agency and to provide faster and better care.

This past weekend some of our providers were able to get some hands on learning with our ultrasounds that we carry on our ambulances. For the past several years we have been carrying ultrasounds on our first out ambulances so that our providers have the ability to look inside of patients and find out what is going on and be able to treat the problem appropriately and transport patients to specialty hospitals, if needed. These ultrasounds have been useful on numerous patients over the past years and have saved multiple patients in life threatening situations. We strive to give the citizens of Nottoway the best care possible and these ultrasounds are examples of ways we try to advance our care to help our patients with any type of emergency. This is only possible with donations from citizens and calling us in an emergency to help you and to transport you to an appropriate hospital for continued care.

In April, we put into service our new 2021Ford E-450 Bruan ambulance. This will take us to 6 ambulances in our fleet to help better serve our community. There will be three ambulances in both of our stations to make sure there is always an ambulance available if needed for an emergency. This new ambulance will be called 722 and will be permanently stationed in Crewe. We want to thank all who have supported us in the past and continue to support us with donations and putting your trust in us with taking care of your friends and family. This truck would not be possible without your donations and you trusting us to get you to the hospital safely and treating you with the most advanced care we can provide.

This week we celebrate National EMS week. For National EMS Week, we honor the many roles of EMS professionals and the people behind the scenes who support them. We also recognize the need to share our story with the rest of the world, to make sure people understand that EMS isn’t defined by lights and sirens or ambulance rides. The full portrait of what EMS does—and who we are—is much more complex, diverse and nuanced. For many in EMS, the sense of responsibility to care for the community doesn’t end when the shift does. EMS means more than dedication to duty and lifesaving patient care. EMS is also community care that takes time, energy and heart.

Late last year the county was generous enough to provide us with funds from the CARES act to purchase a new ambulance that would help us combat COVID-19 a little easier. We were able to get a 2020 Ford PL Custom from Goodman Trucking in Amelia. This truck will be called 725 and replaced old unit 725. 725 will be permanently stationed at our substation in Blackstone. This unit is equipped with UVC lights that constantly disinfects the air that is going through the duct work to kill any bacteria and viruses that go through it. It also has easy to clean interior so it is easier to disinfect after each patient. It is also equipped with a load system and power stretcher to help our providers from lifting heavy loads and hurting their backs. Along with these systems, 725 is loaded with everything else all of our other ambulances carry to respond to any type of emergency we may face.

05/13/2021

As of May 1, we now have two ALS staffed ambulances 24/7. There will be one crew stationed in Blackstone at all times and one crew stationed in Crewe at all times. This is so we can respond to your emergencies faster and have more crews to cover calls no matter when an emergency happens. Our volunteers will still be staffing trucks alongside our paid staff and making extra crews when needed. We want to thank all the support we have received to make this happen.

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we have to post that one of our own suddenly passed away yesterday. Oscie "Ben" Walker has been a backbone of the organization for the past 15 years and the EMS community for years before that. He was one of the first full time paramedics that worked in Nottoway County. Prior to coming to work with Nottoway, he was a field training officer for Richmond Ambulance Authority and mentored hundreds of people. That mentoring continued here in Nottoway over the years. Ben had a sense of humor that was hard for some, but in the worst of times he was there to lift you up with that humor and made you feel better. We will miss Ben riding with us on the truck and hearing his short low voice over the radio. We will miss his stories and his knowledge he shared with us the most. God Speed my friend, we have it from here.

EMS Prayer

As I perform my duty, Lord, Whatever be the call.
Help me to guide and keep me safe, From dangers big and small.
I want to serve and do my best no matter what the scene,
I promise to keep my skills refined, My judgment sharp and keen.
This call to give of myself, most do not understand,
But I stand ready all the time to help my fellow man.
A word of thanks I may not hear but knowing is enough,
That I have helped just even one to go on to live and love.
