Training opportunity planned for Orland Park EMS personnel

January 15, 2018 by  

Knowing how to manage airway issues can sometimes make a huge difference in an emergency situation, and pre-hospital first responders from Orland Park will soon have a chance to sharpen their skills in this area.

The eight-hour workshop will be fast-paced, and will provide instruction in both Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy and Airway Decontamination (SALAD) and video laryngoscopy techniques. This will be conducted through a series of short lectures, which will be followed by hands-on learning, making it an educational experience.

The organizers of the function noted that it will be suitable for both new and experienced EMSs, and most of the students who participate will be able to engage in 30 intubations during their time in the class. They went on to say that the instructors will create realistic scenarios, which will help the attendees become more skilled in life saving techniques.

There is no fee being charged to register for the class, and it will be held in the Orland Fire Protection District Command Training Center. It will begin at 8:30 am and wind up at 4:30 pm. Training manuals and other learning materials for this type of course can be produced by an area print company that offers binding services.

February 8 will be the date for the Call Management for Difficult Airway short course. The Orland Fire Protection District’s website can be consulted for more information about the function.

Orland Park event to be held in support of a local family in need

August 23, 2017 by  

Orland Park residents have been asked to strike back at cancer by taking part in an event in support of a local family coping with this disease.

Andy’s Warriors, which is a group dedicated to lending a helping hand to Andrew Mikal, who was diagnosed in January of 2017 with stage four colorectal cancer, has organized a day of fun and fundraising that will be held at Orland Bowl. Both bowling and food only tickets will be available, and the shoe rental, for those who need it, will be $3.00 each.

In an effort to raise as much as possible during the event, a raffle and an even split draw are also on the agenda for the afternoon. Both individuals and teams will be welcome, and the proceeds from the day will be used to help meet the medical expenses the family has incurred since the receiving the diagnosis in January 2017. Donations will also be most appreciated. A local printer can supply banners and other items that can help to maximize the impact of an effort such as this.

This fundraising event has been planned for the evening of September 23rd, and will be held at 8601 West 159th Street in Orland Park. More information, as well as a link to purchase tickets for the afternoon of bowling, can be found on the Andy’s Warriors website.
