It's EMS week!

May 22, 2007

Albany -- If you visit the Albany Mall this week, you might notice an ambulance inside, but there's no reason to worry.   This is part of Emergency Medical Services week in Dougherty County.

The ambulance and EMS workers are here to teach people more about emergency medical services.

"A lot of people just see this screaming vehicle going down the road. They are not aware of what type of patients that we treat and when to call EMS," said Dougherty EMS Paramedic Renea Hayslip-Clay.  

Visitors can watch a video, see CPR demonstrations, and even have a blood pressure screening. The display will be there through Thursday.
