As I begin to reflect on the 41 years of Morrow County EMS, I find myself humbled. The dedication and compassion of our present and past personnel have truly shown me why this field is a rewarding one. Morrow County EMS has continued to grow, by grow I mean that in the truest sense. The past has planted seeds of compassion for the sick and injured as well as the dedication to embrace technology to improve our patient care. As we continue to grow we must prepare for change in how we deliver care. Whether we do it thru Community Paramedicine, Community Outreach or a Tiered System. We also must embrace our personnel and the people we serve thru the Ten Principles of Servant Leadership; Listening, Empathy, Healing, Awareness, Persuasion, Conceptualization, Foresight, Stewardship, Commitment to Growth of People and Building a Community.
As we move forward in EMS we must keep in mind That EMS is still in its infancy stage compared to the Fire Service. The earliest known fire department was formed in Ancient Rome by Egnatius Rufus who used his slaves to provide a free fire service. The Emperor Augustus established a public fire department in 24 BCE. The Fire service has come a long way since then, now its our turn to grow and shine.
To provide a timely and compassionate response, with the highest quality emergency care to the community.
Our mission is community involvement thru continuous evaluation and anticipatory planning.
Morrow County EMS proudly serves the residents of Morrow County, Ohio. We have 5 stations that are manned 24 hours a day and serve an area of 407 square miles with a population of approximately 35,000 residents. Our total run volume per year is 3800 on average.
