Critical Care Survey

posted Aug 14, 2017, 6:58 AM by Lake Plains Admin   [ updated Aug 14, 2017, 8:05 AM ]

ATTENTION: All Critical Care Techs

WREMAC is attempting to capture some data regarding the CC's in the region to see how they are going to proceed with the direction they need to go regarding this LOC. They are urging that ALL CC's in the region take a moment and fill this out. This is a chance for you to provide the necessary data to them so that your voice can be heard. Please take the time as it is a very brief survey that the STEMS region has put together for this. If you have any questions please feel free to call my office or send an email at 585-345-6110 or rmccartin@lakeplains.org. 


Thank you for your participation.

Niagara Co MERS Reporting

posted Aug 8, 2017, 12:30 PM by Lake Plains Admin

To all the Niagara County EMS Agencies

Recently the NC EMS Council has changed the way they would prefer to have MERS Reports called into the hospital. As we are all aware There has been a new radio channel installed in all MERS radios, MED32. However, because of recent scanner activity and the possibility of HIPAA violations, the Council is requesting that you call in via phone in lieu of the radio. The council is requesting immediately usage, however they are placing a target date of Aug. 14th on this request. The MEDS32 will remain online and active. Please read the email sent from Chad regarding this request. 


If there are any questions please feel free to contact me (585) 345-6110
