The Sun Lakes Fire Department Community Assistance Program “Flash Drive Initiative” recently hosted their first open assistance day and pronounced it a great success as they were able to assist various Sun Lakes residents who might have been uncomfortable or unable to fill out their flash drive forms. “We thought it went great and at times we were so busy that Battalion Chief Helie and Captain Kenyon, who just stopped by to say hello, jumped right in and helped us with clients.”
The other good news is that the flash drives have been tested in the field on three emergency medical calls and have worked flawlessly. SLFD emergency medical technician Brandon Johnson described his experience. “Our male patient told us he had a flash drive and his wife brought it to our crew. I plugged into our electronic patient care report and within seconds was able to transfer all of his medical information. It worked great.”
The flash drives can be purchased for $5 at the Department’s Station Two at 25020 Alma School Road, just north of Riggs Road. For more information or to purchase the flash drives during normal business hours call 895-9343.
