Partnership with St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center
Thanks to a recent partnership with St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center there is now a paramedic on the island year round. With that said, all of the volunteers and EMS staff are provided continuing education at the hospital. The education received will help ensure personnel remains current with medical procedures as they change. Due to the drastic increase in population in the summer months, there is always a huge need for staff. New recruits come from all over the Lake Erie areas to help meet the seasonal demand. Put-in-Bay EMS has a total of four ambulances to serve the island's needs. With an average of 400 EMS calls per year, this is ample to cover the needs of the island. Each ambulance is rigged with the most up-t0-date technology and equipment. These vehicles also include Advanced Life Support equipment and a variety of life-saving medications. Locals and visitors alike can rest easy knowing they are in good hands with Put-in-Bay's EMS team. Another benefit to the St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center is they helped provide a means to provide a Clinic. This clinic is located inside the EMS building.
