February continued Lanoka Harbor EMS’s outstanding record of assignment handling and community event involvement. For the 11th consecutive month, Lanoka Harbor EMS has responded to over 96.5% of all dispatched incidents. LHEMS also attended, in a medical support capacity, their first community event which was hosted at the Lacey Township High School. LHEMS looks forward to continuing to support our community, residents and civic organizations during events such as this throughout the year.
Incidents Handled by Lanoka Harbor EMS
During the month of February, Lanoka Harbor EMS responded to 66 assignments, generating 78 patient care reports and 48 hospital transports. The difference in these numbers is explained by multiple assets responding to the same assignment, e.g. a supervisor vehicle and ambulance responding to the same scene. The assignment type which possessed the highest rate of occurrence for the month of February was “Generalized Weakness”, with 9 occurrences. Following that was “Fall Victim” and “Cardiac Emergency”, both with 8 occurrences.
Mutual Aid Requests
8 requests for mutual aid were answered by Lanoka Harbor EMS:
- Lacey Township EMS: 7 requests answered, resulting in 5 assignments completed
- Bayville EMS: 1 request answered, resulting in 1 assignment completed
Frequently, Lanoka Harbor EMS is requested for mutual aid and is not actually needed. Therefore, you will note a difference in the number of requests and completed assignments.
