North Canton EMS Provides First-Rate Care For You Dr. R. A. Crowley of the University of Maryland Hospital states "Only when every American has access to first-rate emergency care will we have satisfied ■the most urgent demand of our current crisis in health care, and guaranteed to the consumer the most fundamental right of all- r<tihe right to life". For the past four years, many of the citizens of North Canton have adopted this philosophy. The members of the North Canton Emergency Medical Service realize that unless first-rate emergency medical care can be administered efficiently and effectively, the citizens of this community are going to suffer. Editors's Note: The following was prepared by Jody L. Hudson, a member of the North Canton Emergency Medical Service). Twenty - seven of North Canton's already active citizens have committed their lives to seeing that life-saving care is available to everyone. The commitment takenisnotasmall one. The EMS is composed of people who are actively involved in their own pro fessions. All the EMSper- sonnel have a full-time job, which involves aminiumum of 40 hours a week, and in addition to jobs, most have families to be concerned with school, church activites and other social involvements. When talking about a commitment to the Emergency Medical Services, what is meant.

All of the clinical and didactic training is done at the trainees expense and on his own time. No monetary rewards are given. Once these inital 116 hours are completed, a period of observation on the ambulance, again at one's own time, has to be completed. At the end of this time, which is approximately 10 months, commitment really begins. Upon being sworn in as a member of the North Canton Emergency Medical'Service, one automatically dedicates a minimum of 88 hours a month to this volunteer organization. In addition to a 40 hour work week and the responsibilities involved with families and children, the time one volunteers to the Emergency Medical Service is certainly an act of dedication and love. Of the 88 hours mentioned above, 84 of those hours are spent "on call", which means that the individual has tobeintheCityofNorth Canton andincloseproxim- ity to the City Hall where the ambulance is stored, during the entire time.
