Substance-Use Disorder Needs Survey
We’d like to ask for your input about substance-use disorder needs in our communities. As a member of a regional coalition addressing substance-use issues, we are gathering community insights and data about addiction disorders that have overwhelmed our communities in recent years. If you haven’t already done so, please click here to complete a survey by Friday, Nov. 1 to help us document high-priority needs. The survey will gauge community perspectives about a range of substance-misuse problems in Allegany and Cattaraugus counties. We aim to better understand the struggles individuals face daily and to identify areas where community resources could improve. As a valued community professional and partner, your confidential input will help create the most accurate picture possible. Your participation will also help us in the process of seeking over $1 million in much-needed funding to serve our counties. 

Survey takers will be entered in a drawing for one of five $100 gift cards. 
Vital Signs EMS Conference
I am currently attending the Vital Signs 2019 EMS Conference, which began Thursday and runs through Sunday at the Buffalo Convention Center. Organized by the NYS Bureau of EMS and Trauma Systems (BEMSTS), this annual conference is always a great place to network with EMS providers and administrators at a statewide level. It’s also an excellent educational opportunity for everyone. 

I’ll be here promoting the Pediatric Emergency Care Coordinator (PECC) program and working to recruit new PECCs at EMS agencies across NYS. As I’ve reported before, the goal is to improve pediatric protocols and emergency preparedness. Our children are certainly worth the effort. I’m also representing Southern Tier Emergency Medical System (STEMS) as the official program agency for the southwestern region.
