GEMS to hold presentation Tuesday night

Greenwich Emergency Medical Service (GEMS) has been a life saving presence in Greenwich for decades and now it is set to hold a public presentation on Tuesday to explain to the community what it does.

The event will be held at the Eastern Greenwich Civic Center on Tuesday, Feb. 4 at 7 p.m. Representatives from GEMS will present an informative overview of the organization and the services it provides to the community.

Charlee A. Tufts, Executive Director, Greenwich Emergency Medical Service and John Raben, chairman of GEMS’ Board of Directors, will discuss GEMS’ core mission, which is to provide the highest level of pre-hospital emergency medical care to reduce the risk of death and disability due to trauma and sudden illness. A testimonial will also be provided by an individual who has personally benefited from GEMS Services.

Topics to be covered include the history of the development of an emergency medical service provider in Greenwich and GEMS’ history as progressive service and an overview of GEMS ambulance locations, staff and functions. The relationship of GEMS to Greenwich Hospital and the town of Greenwich will also be discussed.

Residents of Greenwich interested in emergency and life-saving statistics can hear about response times, volume of calls and medical/trauma save dates, which will all be outlined at the talk.  The presentation will also remind attendees to call 911 in case of an emergency rather than driving to a hospital.

All are welcome to attend this public presentation at 90 Harding Road in Old Greenwich. For information, contact Lisa Miller at [email protected] or Charlee Tufts at [email protected]
