OTEMS hosts community CPR and Health Fair

[ 0 ] September 18, 2013 |

The Oologah-Talala Emergency Medical Services District is hosting a free (except for Heartsaver CPR certification) Community CPR and Health Fair late this month.

The event will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Oologah Assembly of God. 13462 S. US Highway 169.

“We will be teaching Friends and Family CPR throughout the day, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

“We will have one Heartsaver Class at 2 p.m.. Pre-registration will be required and the card certifying completion of the course will cost $5, which must be paid at registration.

“Millennium Home Health will do a foot clinic from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. It will include trimming diabetic toe nails, lotion treatment for feet, etc.,” said Shelbie Wayman, OTEMS EMT and community liaison. “The American Red Cross will conduct a blood drive from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

“OTEMS will offer blood glucose and blood pressure checks and discuss its 7Ready program, which allows patrons to avoid sticker shock from ambulance bills while providing financial support to OTEMS’ services. OTEMS staff also will discuss donations the district needs to continue or improve services.

“The Rogers State University Emergency Medical Services Student Association (RSUEMSSA) will outline its program, and the Northwest Rogers County Fire Protection District will discuss and distribute literature on fire safety issues.”

Event sponsors besides OTEMS, Northwest, RSU EMSSA, the church and Millennium include Dr. Sam Stauffer and Utica Clinic of Oologah, All Smiles Dental Clinic, WalMart Claremore, and Maltsberger Family Dentistry.

“This will be a fun day which also will provide a large amount of life-saving information, testing and training at no or minimal cost,” Wayman said.
