LYME AMBULANCE Board of Directors President, Andy Smith presents an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) device to Jack Sulger, President of the Library Association. AED’s are now found in most public buildings as they are simple to use and can prevent sudden cardiac death. This donation program is part of the Ambulance Association’s commitment to the Lyme community.
Any Lyme resident interested in learning CPR or AED instruction should contact Lyme Ambulance at 434-5667.
Over 150 people attended the 2nd annual BBQ & Square Dance held in Hamburg on July 7. Young and old danced to the music of The Reel Thing, led by caller Bob Livingston. Thanks to the support of community volunteers, all proceeds went to benefit the Lyme Ambulance Association.
In late November 2015, we installed the Stryker Power Pro stretcher and the Stryker Power Load system in both ambulances. The Stryker models are the most widely used power stretchers in the United States because of the way they reduce injury to ambulance crews and ensure patient safety. The purchase was made possible thanks to generous donations from the estate of Trudy Emerson, and Lyme resident Sandy Mulligan.
