Over the last couple of weeks, Alicia and Micheyla have been working diligently with our EMS providers to complete the requirement for annual didactic and clinical skills credentialing to demonstrate competence with a WREMAC-approved preceptor. This requirement ensures that EMS providers maintain skills to provide care in emergencies safely. I am happy to report 100% compliance by agencies in Allegany, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua Counties by the June 30 deadline. I want to thank all of the agencies for working with us to compile and submit all of the required paperwork and for all of the work they do to ensure high-quality prehospital care is provided in the community.
Our offices will be closed on Monday, July 4 in observance of Independence Day. I hope everyone has a happy holiday weekend and gets to spend time with your families and loved ones. I’d ask that you please take a moment and reflect on the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform, many of whom will be celebrating the 4th far from home in order to protect us and our independence. Have a safe holiday weekend!
