WOW! Valhalla Ambulance Corps held it's first ever PHTLS course. Sue Briggs and Lesley Hughes were the instructors for 10 students. People came from as far as Syracuse just to be entertained by this hands on course. Where else could you learn needle decompression on a pig, or practice I/O on chicken legs, or see how estimated blood loss size actually looks like?If you or your organization would like to host a PHTLS course, please contact us at VVAC1@yahoo.com.

On September 24, 2012 we held court in our very own VVAC. Judge Maselli and Marty Greenberg, CIC, presented two cases of interest for the EMT class and many of our own EMT's. It was a training scenario where we put three of our own EMT's on a simulated stand to question their assessments, judgments, and skills on patient care and documentation. In a fun way of learning, it made everyone "think" about what really could happen. We hope that all who attended, enjoyed the show!

Here at VVAC, we are always looking for volunteers. If you are a neighbor between the ages of 16 to 70, why not stop by and see what we have to offer you. Our Junior Corps are boys and girls between the ages of 16 and 18. They train, ride on EMS calls, and join in all the activities that our Active Members do. Active Members are men and women starting at age 18 years of age who can participate in training in and out of our agency. Most of them are certified NYS EMT's, while the other members are CEVO certified Drivers. And right now is a great time to join........an EMT course and CEVO training is scheduled to run at our own building starting in September! If riding on EMS calls isn't your "thing", we always need dependable people to help with other small tasks. So grab the Associate Member application and let us know your interested in helping out your community. All our applications are on line right here at our website. Print out the right one just for you and fill it out. We would love to hear from you! Thank you for wandering our website and taking interest in YOUR community.

At 4 o'clock on a Friday afternoon during our summers hottest heat wave, Valhalla Ambulance was called upon for our Rehab Unit, 82B2, to help out the Port Chester Fire Department and other First Responders. The house fire, that originally started in the attic, reported no injuries. Our crew provided fluids, ice, and rehab for those First Responders. They did a fantastic job!

On behalf of Valhalla VAC, we would like to thank all of the EMS personnel for their hard work and dedication to the EMS community. During this week, we celebrate you! Here are some pictures from our VVAC BBQ. Events this week included the BBQ, an ice cream night and each VVAC member received a special gift from the officers of VVAC.
This year our ambulance service has implemented a new type of training schedule for both our members and friends in the area to increase our knowledge. To help us with this endeavor, we have asked our neighbors to educate us based on their expertise. In January, we have had the greatest pleasure to have Westchester Medical Center Trauma Service in to discuss trauma care. In February we have had discussions with two of our favorite ER doctors from WMC and WPH to discuss STEMI care. And most recently we visited with our friend Steve Kardian at his Rose Hill Self Defense Studio to give us some insight on how to defend ourselves! These training sessions have been a very large positive motivator in training. If you are interested in attending, feel free to contact us.
From our family at Valhalla Ambulance Corps to your family, we would like to wish you a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season.
