 Every day Emergency Medical Services answer the call to care for our community. Ambulances dispatched from Culver EMS, Plymouth Fire Department or Walkerton-Lincoln Fire Territory are in a race to provide emergency care in homes, on highways and every other location imaginable.

SJHS and local EMS providers have joined forces to set a new standard for emergency care in the communities we serve. As a result of your generosity, eight ambulances* will each become an ER on Wheels - equipped with state-of-the-art technology including:

  • An advanced communication system capable of sending patient information from the field to the Emergency Department immediately, allowing medics, nurses and doctors to create a plan of care to the patient arriving at the hospital.

  • EKG technology that can transmit critical cardiac information from the field to the ER cardiac team waiting on stand-by for the patient to arrive.

  • Auto chest compression devices that deliver precise treatment for patients in cardiac arrest, allowing faster transport and return of heart function.

*Proceeds will benefit emergency response vehicles in Culver (2), Plymouth (4) and Walkerton (2).
