TEMS Celebrates 40th Anniversary

TEMS 40th anniversary logoStarting November 7, 2013 and continuing for next 12 months, the Tidewater EMS Council celebrates its 40th anniversary.  Each of the next five Response newsletters will feature a decade of local and regional EMS as well as some other historical notes or trends over the years. We also added a history section on this website which archives the historical articles included in the Response newsletter and more. See the "TEMS History" link on the left menu in the "About Tidewater EMS" section. Coming soon on this website will be a photo album and we welcome photo contributions. Happy anniversary, everyone!
 

CHKD to delay trauma patient acceptance

Planning and preparation continues but an original January 1, 2014 implementation date has been postponed. "Our current trauma triage plan has not changed," says trauma program director Ann Kuhn, MD, "and when we are ready to receive trauma via our EMS partners we will work through the TEMS structure to ensure an organized changeover."
