We have been very busy here at Quad Ambulance over the past few months. As we posted earlier, we have been working on some changes to ensure our company continues to grow and our communities continue to receive the best care possible.
Over the last few months all our employees and board members have taken an oath of office, and solemnly swore to support, uphold and defend the resolutions and policies adapted by Quad Ambulance district, the state of Ohio and the United States Constitution. We have also participated in numerous trainings and continuing education courses as well as working with some residents and neighboring departments on specific emergency action plans.
We received our new heart monitors and we were able to train on them and place them in service last night. We are now able to provide the hospitals with the most accurate and update information. We would like to thank our board members and all our residents for your continued support of Quad Ambulance District.
