CTEMS looks to improve Community Health

Launch of two new programs looks to improve health of the community before they become ill.

 

9/30/2013 – Cranberry Twp., PA – Beginning tomorrow, October 1st, Cranberry Township Emergency Medical Service (CTEMS) is proud to offer two new programs to improve the health of area residents.  The Safe Landing Program is designed to give new and expectant parents a start on the right foot.  By ensuring that their car seats are properly installed, learning how to perform CPR and safe sleeping education for infants, parents will be better able to provide for their newborns.  The Community Wellness Check Program is designed to catch problems while their small or before they even happen.  By using a preventative model, we can attempt to keep people healthy and at home.      

 

The Safe Landing Program is a four visit by one of our specially trained Community Medics.  It will consist of a four hour visit where our technicians will check for proper installation of car seats, a CPR training where it is encouraged to invite your friends, family and neighbors, a home safety check and safe sleep education for infants.  CTEMS has partnered up with the non-profit Cribs for Kids and will be able to replace any unsafe cribs found for little to no cost to the resident.

Wellness þ’s  is designed to be a peace of mind program where depending on level of service purchased our specially trained Community Medics will take and track vitals, make sure people are taking their medications correctly, assist with medical questions and setting up appointments and performing a home safety check during a weekly one hour visit.   For more information on the Cranberry Township EMS Community Health Program, visit http://www.cranberrytownshipems.org/index.php/community-health.
