Michael Aliano – President/CEO

It is hard to put into words what the men and women of American Ambulance sacrifice in order for them to be the professionals they are, the time spent away from their families including hours on the job and in continuing education. They often find themselves on the road when everyone else is told not to be and they do this nights, weekends and holidays. I hope you appreciate them as much as I do. The men and women of American Ambulance are truly Dedicated, Professional People, Committed to Excellence, Caring for You.

🚑When we first took over ambulance operations in the Town of Griswold one of our goals was to get the town recognized as a HeartSafe Community. In order to do this we had to determine how many ...AEDs were in the town and ensure there were enough people CPR trained based on the size of the community. After discovering there wasn't an AED in the Griswold Town hall, we decided to donate one and have American Professional Educational Services, Inc. train town employees.

❤️HeartSafe Community signs will be delivered directly to Town leadership from the CT Department of Public Health Office of Emergency Medical Services. We will continue to maintain this designation for the Town of Griswold going forward.

🚑EMS WEEK · THURSDAY · SAVE-A-LIFE 🛑

Bystanders to an accident have the ability to help first responders on their way to the scene. Save-A-Life Day empowers the general public to ...learn and apply steps that can be taken to help save a life.

May is Stop the Bleed Month and today is Stop the Bleed Day so let's talk about what Stop the Bleed is. The purpose of this campaign is to make our nation more resilient by better preparing the public to step in if people nearby are severely bleeding. This preparation is being done by raising awareness and teaching three quick actions to control serious bleeding.

Stop the Bleed is a grassroots effort. If you don’t see a course available near you, contact your local hospital and ask for one to be held in your community. American Professional Educational Services, Inc. offers a Bleeding Control course as part of the Stop the Bleed campaign. Learn more here: https://americanprotraining.com/bleeding-control/

🚑EMS WEEK · WEDNESDAY · EMS for CHILDREN'S DAY 👶

Choosing the right car seats and booster seats can be challenging but it's crucial the seat fits properly to ensure the ...child's safety. Here is a guide on what type of seat children should be in based on their age, height, and weight.

Rear-Facing Car Seat · Birth to 3 years old
Children under age 1 should always ride in a rear-facing car seat.

Forward-Facing Car Seat · 1 to 7 years old
Children should remain in a rear-facing car seat until they reach the top height or weight limit. Then they are ready to travel in a forward-facing car seat with a harness and tether.

Booster Seat · 4 to 12 years old
Once children outgrow the forward-facing car seat with a harness, it’s time to travel in a booster seat, but still in the back seat.

Seat Belt · 8 to 12 years old
Keep children in a booster seat until they are big enough to fit in a seat belt properly. The lap belt must lie across the upper thighs, not the stomach. The shoulder belt should lie snugly across the shoulder and chest and not cross the neck or face.

🚑EMS WEEK · TUESDAY · SAFETY DAY 🦺

This Safety Day we wanted to highlight how important stress and mental health management are in EMS. This field is unpredictable and oftentimes ...shocking and unsettling. We need to encourage first responders to check in with themselves and each other. The stigma surrounding talking about our struggles and emotions needs to end. There's nothing stronger than someone who notices they aren't okay and reaches out for help. It's not an easy thing to do but it's a necessary step to start feeling better.

Never leave a child unattended in a vehicle -- even with the windows cracked, even “for a minute”. Vehicles heat up to dangerous temperatures quickly and children's bodies heat up three to ...five times faster than adults'. What can you do to help prevent this situation?
☀️Always check the backseat when exiting the vehicle
☀️Keep vehicle doors locked and keep keys away from children
☀️Call 911 if you see a child alone in a vehicle
Like and share to raise awareness as the temperatures start rising!
