The LCPA participates with other medical providers and well as
local emergency response agencies in public education and awareness
activities, and in interactive exercises all year round. The LCPA
has developed a working collaborative agreement with Lincoln Rural
Fire Department that provides the best possible response time and
care for those needing its services.
In March the LCPA were at the Lincoln Park District during both the
Kidís, and the Community Health Fairs. They took an ambulance and
did tours of the inside so that people can see and become familiar
with what is inside, so that it is less scary for anyone, especially
children, before they or a loved one might need to ride in one.
In September, personnel were on-hand with an ambulance for display
joining a number of other local, regional and state emergency
response agencies at the annual "Emergency Preparedness" held at
All year, the LCPA works with numerous local and state first
response and support agencies in preparation for any disaster. These
include the Logan County Department of Public Health, Abraham
Lincoln Memorial Hospital, Logan County Emergency Management Agency,
Lincoln Fire Department, Lincoln Rural Fire Protection District,
Lincoln Police Department, Logan County Sheriff's Department, Logan
County Coroner's Office, Lincoln/Logan Crime Stoppers, American Red
Cross, Salvation Army and others.

Emergency responders go to many types of calls from medical
to accident. There are often risks of exposure to violence,
explosions, chemicals, being struck on icy roadways. Paramedics
are nearly always part of any call-out for emergency services.
Many times, those who serve at the scene of a disaster or
accident, or even when called to a building or home, are putting
their own lives at risk.
Thank a paramedic and any other responder you know today.
