Attached is the process and link for submitting a nomination for the 2018 Awards Banquet. The Link will open on January 1st and close on January 31st.

 OEMS Licensed Ground EMS Service Admins operating in Region 1 have already been emailed their username and password.

 For other entities or individuals that do not work for one of these agencies, if you wish to make a nomination for one of the awards, you will need to request a username and password from me. Only one person from an agency should make the request, then share that with others in your organization that wish to make a nomination also through your agency.

 Please make your request for access no later than January 5th, 2018. Should you wait until the last day or two to request one, I might not be able to get your account set up and access sent to you in time to create and submit the nomination, as my schedule is full at the end of the month.

 If you have any questions feel free to contact me via email or phone. My state cell phone is always the best # to call me on as I am only in my Rome office once every week or two.

STOP THE BLEED SCHOOL PROGRAM NEWS

As many of you may already know, The GA Trauma Commission and the Governor’s Office is supporting the Stop the Bleed Campaign statewide to train personnel in every school in the State of GA. So far several of our counties have taken the initiative and have either started or completed the training in their respective counties.

However, some counties have yet to start the process. Our goal is to complete this initiative by June 2018 statewide.

Should you have anyone in your organization, or know someone that would be an asset to help us teach this program, please encourage them to email Jaina, Scott and myself that they plan to attend so we know how many to plan for. The training takes about an hour or less depending on the number of attendees.

Thank you for you attention to this matter.
