CEO Update
EMS Leadership Academy
I’m very excited to report that the Southwestern Regional EMS Council has agreed to fund a second two-day EMS Leadership Academy based on the success of the Leadership Academy we hosted in January. More than 28 EMS agency leaders from Allegany, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties attended the training. The class is part of our EMS Volunteer Recruitment and Retention Program sponsored by the New York State Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Services. The EMS Leadership Academy provides existing and up-and-coming EMS leaders with the knowledge and skills they need to successfully guide and build their agencies. We know that leadership is the key to improving volunteer recruitment and retention. The class will be held on a date to be determined. I want to thank the Southwestern Regional EMS Council for their support of this important program.
Regional Paramedic Program
The Regional Paramedic Program which began in January is going very well. Adopting the My Brady Lab teaching software has been a tremendous success with the class. This software allows students to complete their homework and take tests and quizzes online. It also tracks all their progress, keeps a record of their work and enables them to gauge their benchmarks against those of other students. We continue to fine-tune the class as our experience has grown using distance learning technology to provide training like the Regional Paramedic Program. We have 25 EMS providers in the class, 11 from Cattaraugus County and 14 from Chautauqua County. Classes are being held in distance-learning labs at Olean General Hospital and at the ALSTAR Training Center in Jamestown. Using this technology gives EMS providers who have full-time jobs in other professions the flexibility to take classes closer to home and achieve certification as paramedics.
