January 13, 2024

On Wednesday evening, the crews gathered for their weekly training. This week's focus was on QRS topics. QRS stands for "Quick Response Service" and is a non-transporting Emergency Medical Service (EMS). The Glen Moore Fire Company has several volunteer EMT's who respond as part of the QRS.

EMT Mary McCabe provided a training on cold weather emergencies. There was a review of hypothermia and how to safely respond to cold weather emergencies. Crews then trained on proper lifting techniques and how to use a variety of lifting equipment. These included the stair chair, scoop stretcher, and Reeves board.
