Study Tips for EMS Students
This past Monday, Carolyn Bauer presented to our Paramedic and EMT-B students on studying and test-taking techniques for students. In addition, Carolyn shared with the students how to prepare for exams and why specific techniques work better than others.
The students got a lot out of this presentation, and I want to thank Carolyn for taking time out of her busy schedule to share her knowledge with our students!
Child Passenger Safety Awareness Week
Next week is Child Passenger Safety Awareness Week! Child Passenger Safety Awareness Week highlights the importance of ensuring that all children are correctly secured in an appropriate car seat or seatbelt.
Two child passenger safety checks are upcoming in celebration of this week. On Sunday, September 19, there is a safety check at Mercy Flight, and on Wednesday, September 22, there is another at War Veteran Park. Call Ardent Solutions at 585.808.7036 to make an appointment to get your child's car seat inspected.
World Suicide Prevention Day
Today, September 10, is World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD). This is an awareness day observed every year to provide worldwide commitment and action to prevent suicides, with various activities around the world since 2003.
The Cattaraugus County Suicide Prevention Coalition has been promoting Suicide Prevention Week and World Suicide Prevention Day. We are happy that STHCS staff could participate in promoting suicide prevention awareness and show our support.
This week, I attended the St. Bonaventure University’s Coordinated Community Response Team (CCRT) meeting. At this meeting, it was discussed that a member of St. Bonaventure’s Medical Emergency Response Team, Alexandra Rozanski, has recently joined the CCRT as the student ambassador. It is great to see members of SBU MERT getting involved in the CCRT. In addition to our involvement in the CCRT, we continue to work with Connecting Communities in Action (CCA) on prevention and outreach efforts to benefit and support the sexual assault survivors of our rural community.
