Can anyone tell me why I'm getting charged .30 on my cell phone bill for Joachim Plattin amb district and Emergency Services District, and who authorized this? Seems like another sneaky way of getting more out of the taxpayer as we already pay for this. I've called and left a message but no one has returned my call. There also is no contact info on the website.
Thank you JPAD family for being there to pay respect to John’s dad and support John and our family during this time.
I wanted to thank the team of paramedics that came to my house and rescued my husband from the fall he took onto some concrete steps. You guys are amazing and words cannot express how grateful I am for you.
Slow down and move over!
3 years ago on this day you al saved my life, thank you JPAD!

The Chief Medical Officer presented to the Board of Directors, recognition of clinical action(s) that collectively resulted in diminishing morbidity and potential heart damage of a patient suffering an acute myocardial infarction. The crew’s performance is not only acknowledged but it is valued by all stake holders of the Joachim-Plattin Ambulance District and upholds the mission of the District: “To provide prehospital care and transportation for our community with Compassion, Integrity, Respect and Dedication”.

Recognition is given to Captain Greg Maguire and paramedic Andy Dixon for their professionalism in managing a Time Critical Diagnosis STEMI after encountering a 58-year-old male at a construction site. The crew’s swift assessment began with acquisition of the first 12 lead within 1 minute of arrival and showed Anteroseptal STEMI.

The crew promptly activated Code STEMI through LifeNet system and began treatments prior to scene departure. Well within TCD benchmarks, the crew administered IV therapy, analgesia, a nitroglycerine drip, and elective anti-coagulation therapy through administration of Heparin. These treatments executed prior to arriving at the ER would change the patient’s EKG to near normal, prompting the cardiology team to dub this crew #STEMIstoppers.

Emergent catheterization occurred within 41 minutes of first medical contact; well within the TCD guidelines of 90 minutes. Superlative EMS care and transition to CCL allowed emergent catheterization to correct a 95% occluded LAD with a single stent. Furthermore, preservation of myocardial tissue was evident as the patient suffered no significant change of his ventricular performance. The patient was discharged home the next day.

This STEMI location has the propensity to cause permanent damage to the left ventricle or degrade to sudden cardiac arrest if allowed to progress. The crew’s situational awareness of severity coupled with aggressive treatments outlined in District PCGs, allowed quick management by the hospital’s interventionalist team.

Early recognition, exceptional clinical management and teamwork between disciplines offered successful revascularization resulted in reducing morbidity and mortality. Continue with this exceptional work ethic and display of patient advocacy. Serving with pride while making a difference is truly a Good Catch moment!

The tenure of the Paramedics with Joachim-Plattin Ambulance District: Captain/Paramedic Greg Maguire has dedicated service since 1981; Paramedic Andy Dixon has dedicated service since 2010.

The Chief Medical Officer presented to the Board of Directors, recognition of clinical action(s) that collectively resulted in diminishing morbidity and potential heart damage of a patient suffering an acute myocardial infarction. The crew’s performance is not only acknowledged but it is valued by all stake holders of the Joachim-Plattin Ambulance District and upholds the mission of the District: “To provide prehospital care and transportation for our community with Compassion, Integrity, Respect and Dedication”.

Recognition is given to paramedics Jim Shoffstall and Mike White for their professionalism in managing a Time Critical Diagnosis STEMI. Around midnight of January 17, 2021 the crew encountered a 59-year-old male patient at his rural residence with complaint of ACS symptoms. Assessment revealed a male who complained of symptoms similar as his last heart attack nearly 10 years prior. Initial 12 lead was 'suspicious' but did not meet criterion for STEMI.
Remaining attentive to a potentially dynamic clinical situation, serial 12 lead EKGs provided immediate recognition of STEMI.

Swift detection promoted the crew in alerting Code STEMI thought LifeNet system and preparing for transport to PCI hospital. Well within TCD benchmarks, and prior to transporting, the crew administered IV therapy, analgesia, nitroglycerine through the pump and effective anticoagulation therapy through administration of Heparin. Despite being in a more rural portion of the District, the crew managed timely transport to CCL for the reperfusion of an acute occlusion.

Emergent catheterization occurred within the TCD guidelines of under 90 minutes. This time includes EMS encounter, treatment/stabilization, transportation, ED treatments, CCL preparation and interventionalists locating and opening the occlusion. This event allowed emergent catheterization in the early morning hours on a weekend. It was discovered the patient had a 99% occlusion of the RCA requiring revascularization and 2 stents to the artery. Furthermore, preservation of myocardial tissue was evident as the patient no significant change of his EF at 50 – 55%. Patient later discharged home on 1/20/2021.

This STEMI could have easily been overlooked without the crew’s situational awareness in providing serial 12 lead EKGs, after the initial showed marginal concerns. Additionally, the crew’s advocacy paired with clinical instinct is the premise of this commendation. Teamwork and prompt recognition of the situation provided successful catheterization to a patient suffering a STEMI. Your recognition and activation of Code STEMI made a difference in morbidity and mortality.

Continue with the excellent work and advocacy. Serving with pride while making a difference is truly a Good Catch moment!

The tenure of the Paramedics with Joachim-Plattin Ambulance District: Paramedic Mike White has dedicated service since 1993; Paramedic/Crew Trainer Jim Shoffstall has dedicated service since 2018.

The crew’s performance is not only acknowledged but it is valued by all stake holders of the Joachim-Plattin Ambulance District and upholds the mission of the District: “To provide prehospital care and transportation for our community with Compassion, Integrity, Respect and Dedication”.

Recognition is given to Captain Brian Harmon and paramedics Wade Lindsey and Lillian Akin for their professionalism in managing a Time Critical Diagnosis STEMI. On the morning of January 6, 2021, the crew encountered a 61-year-old male patient with a complaint of atypical symptoms of a heart attack. Due to clinical presentation and history of similar event, the crew obtained a 12 lead within minutes of arrival which discovered criterion indicating acute myocardial infarction.

The crew proceeded to provide a full cardiac assessment, establishment of IV lifeline, administration of ASA, and immediate activation of Code STEMI through LifeNet transmission. The crew’s efforts exceeded all TCD minimal parameters for managing clinical priorities surpassing all benchmarks adopted by the District. Their professional preparation and communication of a STEMI to local PCI allowed interventionalists to prepare the CCL and led to the patient being successfully re-perfused within 62 minutes of first medical contact by EMS. This exceeds national standards by 28 minutes.

Emergent catheterization discovered the patient had a 100% occlusion of the Right Coronary Artery resulting in successful dilation by ballooning, followed by clot removal single stent placement. Patient was admitted into the ICU for a two-day observation. The patient did not sustain any large myocardial tissue damage confirmed with discharge on 1/8/2021 with an EF of 55-65%.

This crew’s situational awareness of STEMI, prioritization of treatments and observing Time Critical Diagnostics provided for successful revascularization procedures making a difference in morbidity and mortality.

Continue with the excellent work and advocacy. Serving with pride while making a difference is truly a Good Catch moment!

The tenure of the Paramedics with Joachim-Plattin Ambulance District: Captain Brian Harmon has dedicated service since 2002; Paramedic Wade Lindsey has dedicated service since 2009; Paramedic Lillian Akin is a recent paramedic graduate and is on-boarding with the District as a part time paramedic.

The Chief Medical Officer presented to the Board of Directors, recognition of clinical action(s) that resulted in saving a human life. The crew’s performance is not only acknowledged but it is valued by all stake holders of the Joachim-Plattin Ambulance District and upholds the mission of the District: “To provide pre-hospital care and transportation for our community with Compassion, Integrity, Respect and Dedication”.

Recognition is given to Paramedics Ernie Morfeld and Jared Farmer for their professionalism in managing patient in cardiac arrest. On the morning of December 5, 2020 this crew responded to an unresponsive patient at an area firehouse. When EMS arrived, active CPR was being performed outside a car on the apron of the engine house. The initial assessment of a 58-year-old male patient revealed a pulseless, apneic V-Fib arrest.

The crew implemented a newly adopted position with cardiac arrest management and expressed professional diplomacy with EMR in assuring those guidelines were achieved. Upon rapid deployment of an advanced airway, the LUCAS CPR device, intraosseous placement with an epinephrine dose, defibrillation followed. These actions were successfully implemented within 4 minutes of patient contact. Upon departure from the scene the patient had regained a sustainable cardiac rhythm, peripheral pulses, and maintained stabilized vital signs. Patient was intubated and placed on a mechanical ventilator for transport.

No STEMI EKG patterns were encountered by the crew during transport. Post arrest EKG upon arrival at ED showed concerns for STE anteroseptal and laterally, warranting an emergent cardiac catheterization in CCL. There was no culprit occlusion found and patient remained in ICU for a week. The patient was discharged on December 15th with an internal defibrillator/pacemaker placement
and was able to spend Christmas with family with a full positive neurological state.

The chain of survival is displayed with this event. Beginning with high-quality CPR from first responders, to ALS implementing new cardiac management theory, including early defibrillation of a prepared myocardium, your professionalism provided opportunity to preserve a human life. Continue with the excellent work and advocacy. Serving with pride while making a difference is truly a Good Catch moment!

The tenure of the Paramedics with Joachim-Plattin Ambulance District: Ernie Morfeld has had dedicated full-time service since 1988. Jared Farmer has been part-time with the District since 2018.

Our Story

Joachim-Plattin Ambulance District (JPAD) is located 30 miles south of St. Louis, Mo and was formed in 1975. The district covers the southeast portion of Jefferson County and proudly serves approximately 63,000 residents. JPAD responds to 9,000 calls for service a year. It is tax supported district consisting of an elected six member Board of Directors. Our current board members are; Board President, Terry Thomas, Sam Richards, Cindy Vaugh, Denise Gebhardt, Daryl Reed and Ron Weeks.
Our emergency team consists of 36 full time paramedics, over 50 part time EMT/paramedics, and 5 administrative staff. JPAD currently operates out of five stations located throughout the area staffed with two paramedics 24 hours a day. Each crew has a Captain in charge of their shift.
A crew, Ken Strathmann 6005
B crew, Greg Maguire 6004
C crew, Kevin Dennis 6003
All of our Paramedics are required to attend continuing education provided by the district’s training officer Gary Stefan. Gary is in charge of making sure that we have the proper training in all of our advanced critical care. Each crew has a trainer that is responsible for quarterly training of all their staff. The trainers are; A crew Mike Tawfall, and C crew Ernie Morfeld.

The ambulance district is committed to provide the best possible advanced life support to the residence we serve. We have state of the art medical equipment and advanced airway capability. JPAD works closely with Mercy Hospital Jefferson in Crystal City, Mo to provide rapid cardiac care for patients having a heart attack. We are able to do a 12 lead EKG in the field with our Lifepak 15 cardiac monitor and send it to the hospital. This provides advanced notice to the cardiology team and greatly improves the outcome of patient care. JPAD also carries advanced medications for Rapid Sequence Intubation. This enables us to assist patients that are in need of an emergency airway and place a breathing tube with less complication. Along with our enhanced care, we are also able to place patients on a ventilator and do mechanical CPR with our "Lucas" automatic devise that does CPR on the patient without requiring extra personnel.

JPAD also teaches numerous CPR classes for the public and has received grants to purchase numerous Automated External Defibrillators (AED) for public buildings and local police and fire departments. Here at Joachim-Plattin Ambulance District, we strive to provide great customer service and outstanding medical care. We developed this page to keep you informed of what's going on with your ambulance district. Please feel free to contact our administrative office if you have any questions about our service or CPR classes.

Our job is made much easier with the help of all the Fire Departments and Districts that respond to assist us on our calls and can never thank them enough. These include; Festus Fire, Crystal City Fire, Herculaneum Fire, Dunklin Fire Protection District, Jefferson R7 Fire Protection District, Hematite Fire Protection District, Mapaville Fire Protection District, DeSoto Rural Fire Protection District, Hillsboro Fire and Goldman. Paramedic Tim Todd acts as the Fire Department Liaison for the Ambulance District.
