Dr. Lyle F. Renodin Foundation
I am happy to report that the Dr. Lyle F. Renodin Foundation has funded our Cribs for Kids program for $2,000. The Renodin Foundation is a Ministry of the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany, NY. This grant will allow us to purchase 20 Pack N Plays and 20 fitted sheet sets for caregivers to prevent sudden infant death syndrome and other sleep-related injuries. In addition, we will continue educating parents on safe infant sleep through the Cribs for Kids Program. Thank you to the Renodin Foundation for your support!
Intermediate Incident Command System for Expanding Incidents
This week, we hosted the Intermediate Incident Command System for Expanding Incidents (ICS-300) training in collaboration with the Cattaraugus County Office of Emergency Services and the City of Olean Fire Department. This training resulted in 13 local individuals who are now ICS-300 certified. I want to thank all who took the time to participate in this training.
Remembering Howard Howlett
There will be a memorial for Howard Howlett tomorrow, Saturday, September 24, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. at the Chautauqua Lake Yacht Club Inc. at 43 E Lake St, Lakewood, NY 14750. If you can join us to honor our long-time board chair and one of the founding members of the board of Southern Tier Health Care System your attendance would be appreciated.
State EMS Council
This week, Alicia and I attended the State EMS Council meetings in Troy, NY with Mickey Forness and Todd Reisner as our Southwestern Region representatives. It was great to be able to attend these meetings in person and receive important updates from the Bureau of EMS and Trauma Systems and the regions across NYS.
