FOND DU LAC, WI - The City of Fond du Lac Fire Department will be hosting an Open House to celebrate Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week 2013. The theme for this EMS week is "EMS: One Mission, One Team". It exemplifies the theme that each community should have which is working together to ensure the best emergency medical care possible. It also demonstrates the commitment for all EMS providers in working together to provide care across the nation.
The mission for EMS week has two primary parts. The first part is taking the opportunity to show appreciation for our EMS providers within our communities. The second part of that mission is for EMS providers to educate their community on the service they provide and how each citizen can be an integral part of helping their community.
The City of Fond du Lac Fire Department will be partnering with Flight for Life and the Red Cross in opening its doors at Station 1 (815 South Main Street) on Saturday, May 18, from Noon until 3 p.m. to accomplish that mission. There will be demonstrations (Jaws of Life, Simulated medical emergency) by Firefighters and Paramedics, along with a Flight for Life helicopter landing (weather permitting). Kids will get to try on Firefighter/Paramedic gear, get a special visit by Patches and Pumper, and get some take home goodies. All will have the opportunity to tour the station, see the trucks, and learn the basics of CPR, first aid, and handling emergencies. Light refreshments will be served
