Emergency Medical Responders needed

To Whom it May Concern

The Eastern Carroll County Ambulance Commission would like to provide Emergency Medical Responders in the areas currently not served by volunteer responders. An Emergency Medical Responder is a volunteer who provides immediate lifesaving care to patients that access the emergency medical services while awaiting ambulance arrival, and assisting ambulance personnel once on scene.

The areas currently in need of services include but are not limited to the central Carroll County area. Grandview, Berryville city, Highway 21 South to Crystal Mountain, Highway 21 North to Urbanette, Highway 221 North and South, Highway 62 West to Kings River Bridge, Highway 62 East to Midway Church, and all county roads accessed from these areas.

We would like any person who lives in these areas that are interested in becoming an Emergency Medical Responder to contact amy.leivan-eccad@outlook.com before Jan. 7, 2019.
