Lexington County paramedics, firefighters, and deputies conduct water-based training on Lake Murray

Lexington, SC (Angelica Iglesias) - Lexington County paramedics, firefighters, and deputies conducted water-based training on Lake Murray July 11, 2017 at the Joseph Drew Smith Marine Patrol Headquarters.

The training was led by the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department and the County of Lexington Department of Public Safety. They were assisted by representatives from Michelin Tires and Irmo Fire District.

The police officers, EMS, and firefighters were training how to rescue patients from the water, transport them to a boat, and then back onto land. They also participated in many team building activities to ensure everyone is comfortable with the operations and each other. Having a good team of rescuers ensures the patients get the best quality care.

The ambulance bus was out to show newer EMS the operations of a situation in which it is used. They learned how to properly load patients into the bus, how to triage those patients, and then how to unload them.
