Orange City Area Health System purchased two new “jump bags” for its ambulances, thanks to funds raised last December from Iowa State Bank’s annual ‘Big Christmas Card’ community fundraiser. The bank donated $5 for each signature specified to a patron’s organization of choice, and the health system’s EMS team received $800 from this fundraising event, which was used to purchase the new medical supply bags. Both basic and advanced life support supplies are held and transported via these new module-style trauma kits. According to paramedic Cedric Franken, “With one bag in, one bag out, instead of multiple bags, it’s much easier to carry needed supplies and equipment into a scene. This is a very much appreciated donation to our EMS efforts, thanks to Iowa State Bank and the community members who signed their card on our behalf.” The Orange City Area Health System EMS team is comprised of four full-time Paramedics, one casual Paramedic, 13 EMTs, and five drivers. Dr. Alan Laird, the health system’s Chief Medical Officer, serves as Medical Director for the ambulance/ER.
