Do you have questions about ambulance service and other emergency medical services, or end-of-life-related issues?

Wayne Endersby and Tami Waldron from the Eagle Valley Ambulance Service and Jamie Kaesemeyer from Heart 'n Home Hospice and Saint Alphonsus-Baker City have answers!

What's the blue sign with the picture of a phone for?

When do you call the ambulance?

Who and what determines whether Life Flight needs to be called. What is Vial of Life? What if you call the ambulance and it turns out you didn't need it? How do the EMTs know what to do if you are unconscious and need medication? What is a Medical Directive? What if you have no family and need help at home for a period of time? What kind of help can hospice provide? How do you sign up for Life Flight? How much does Life Flight cost?

These and many more questions will be answered on Tuesday, November 10 at 7:00 p.m. at the New

Bridge Grange. There is no charge, and everyone is welcome.
