Thank you for doing what you do. You are one of the several who helped me with my wife before she passed back in March, and if there would be one word to describe your service, it would be compassion. It takes special people to do what you do and I for one hope that we as the public, do everything possible to support you and keep you here.

Welcome back to Lincoln County Ambulance District #MeetTheCrewMonday!

This week, meet C shift Battalion Chief Claudette!

Claudette has been employed at LCAD for 16 years and went to St Louis Community College Florissant for paramedic school.

Claudette has a very important role at LCAD, not only is she a paramedic but is in the position of Battalion Chief. LCAD has 1 Battalion Chief on duty per shift and they are stationed in Troy. The Battalion Chief on duty responds to calls in a supervisory role for medical assistance to the crew and also for scene safety. On the occasion that LCAD goes “code zero” with no ambulances available- from being on other calls, the Battalion Chief responds and renders medical care until an ambulance is able to arrive. Battalion Chiefs also handle logistics such as supply and fleet management.

If Claudette wasn’t a paramedic she would be a veterinarian, she loves animals! When Claudette isn’t working she can be found at her farm or spending time with her 10 grandchildren. She also loves to travel and go camping!

SPECIAL NEEDS TRACKING AND AWARENESS RESPONSE SYSTEM

S.T.A.R.S

The ambulance district has joined several others in the St. Louis area that have started a new program called S.T.A.R.S. — Special Need Tracking and Awareness Response System.

The program is for special needs patents especially under the age of 18 and allows the district to be aware of any medical conditions it may encounter when responding to an emergency call.

The S.T.A.R.S. program was founded a few years ago by Shelby Cox, EMS liaison for Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center, and Tricia Casey, a paramedic with Rock Township Ambulance District. Once our district attended a meeting and learned more about the program, our administrators and paramedics agreed it would be beneficial to local families.

To learn more information about the S.T.A.R.S. Program, contact Battalion Chief Janet Norton, Lincoln County Ambulance District STARS Coordinator, at 636-528-8488  ext. 306 or stars@lcad.net or fill out the form below and we will contact you.
