    Congratulations to our 2017 Stars of Life!

    Jackie Adams
    Paramedic
    Woodward County EMS
    Woodward, OK

    Jackie Adams has been with Woodward County EMS for 37 years.  She began her career as an EMT Basic, then continued her education to the Paramedic level.  Jackie is an employee that goes above and beyond what is required of her.  She has volunteered to cover extra shifts and is the one to call when help is needed in a hurry for high call volume.  Due to paramedic shortage, Jackie has been called on to make more than her share of ALS emergent long distance transfers, many in the middle of the night.  The long distance transfers are usually at least 140 miles.  Jackie also supports the mission of Woodward County EMS and is a great historian to the new employees.

    Woodward County EMS is very pleased to nominate Jackie Adams as a Star of Life.

    From AIMHI:

    Support Services such as logistics and fleet functions are the 'power behind the punch' of any high value EMS Organization. Fleet operations in particular require expert management and forward planning to ensure it is mission ready for today's operations and compliant with changes to vehicle safety and manufacturing specifications in the future.

    Managing such complex task vehicles in any EMS system is both a professional and full time occupation. National Award Winning (EMS10) Director of Support Services at the Richmond Ambulance Authority, Dan Fellows and James Neitz, Manager - Supply & Logistics for Northwell Health, will lead this webinar and literally deliver the nuts and bolts of a high performing ambulance fleet.

The 2017 Oklahoma Ambulance Association’s (OKAMA) membership drive has begun and the Board of Directors personally invite all current members and those who have yet to join, to become members for 2017 today!

OKAMA membership is strong and we want every provider and vendor to join our association and to be part of the ongoing efforts of improving the state of EMS in Oklahoma. To make sure all services are involved, OKAMA provides complimentary membership to small services that transport fewer than 100 patients a year and provides unlimited conference attendance at no cost to those companies or organizations that pay $2,500 or more in annual dues. Current members will be receiving a renewal form by mail soon and all others can find an application on this website, www.okama.org.
