EMS EQUIPMENT FAMILIARIZATION FOR VOLUNTEERS

​We held a familiarization class for a few residents which allowed them to see and touch the equipment and  get a basic idea of function and where it is located on our equipment.  We are very fortunate to have folks who are willing to be "gophers", if we need unexpected equipment on-scene.  It allows us to provide continuous care for our island friends!

Hardware review.
