The last 24 hours has been mind boggling busy for our first responders. LCAD is literally running the wheels off the Ambulance. Noone was injured but it's always scary when you have a blowout. ... See MoreSee Less

Glad no one got hurt. I know you were all running busy even before the rain got here. During the middle of the day you all didn’t have any ambulances available for additional calls coming in as the ambulances were already on other calls. At one point I heard that it was going to be 22 minutes before an ambulance could arrive on scene to a call as they were still coming back from the hospital from the last call that particular ambulance ran.

Thank You for ALL You Do ❤ Be Safe ❤🇺🇸💙

Wow and top heavy vehicle great driver there

Many miles put on the ambulances. Glad your alright

On a steer tire nonetheless, good work on keeping the rig upright. Stay safe

Wow, props to the emt for his ability to keep control of an already top heavy apparatus when it blows a steer tire.

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.
