CEO Update
ALSTAR EMS Paramedic Instructor
I’m happy to report that a familiar face is now the Paramedic Program instructor at the ALSTAR EMS Training Center in Jamestown. Brian Wilcox recently took a new job as the Clinical Coordinator Educator at ALSTAR after many years working as a Flight Paramedic here in Olean. 
 
I’d like to congratulate Brian on the new position with ALSTAR, one of our great partnering agencies. He has always been a terrific instructor for our Stop the Bleed program and CPR trainings as well as a WREMAC-approved skills evaluator. He will soon complete his Certified Instructor Coordinator (CIC) internship, a process which includes mastering policies and procedures required in administering trainings. His skills are a welcome addition to the critical EMS trainings offered in our region.
Narcan Trainings Making an Impact
Fighting the opioid epidemic may always be an uphill battle. Yet, through our Southern Tier Opioid Prevention Program (STOPP) and numerous other coalition efforts, we always strive for the greatest possible impact. I’m very proud of our Narcan program, which provides emergency responders and community members with intranasal naloxone and training to reverse overdose effects. Since 2015, it has prepared more than 2,600 individuals within our counties with the tools and knowledge to save a life. It has also distributed more than 5,500 doses of Narcan and recorded more than 800 successful administrations by EMS, fire and police personnel. 

I’d like to thank Jordan Taylor, our Prevention Coordinator, for working so hard to promote this program within our communities. In recent weeks, she has done trainings at ACASA in Wellsville, TLC Health Network in Irving, the Seneca Nation Health System in Salamanca and Literacy West in Olean. Upcoming sessions are scheduled at St. Bonaventure University and Jamestown Community College in Olean. If your organization would like to schedule a training, please contact Jordan at prevention@sthcs.org or call (716) 372-0614.
