Township of Greenville Rescue Squad

Greenville Rescue started service on January 1, 1975 as an all volunteer Emergency Medical Service. This service was initially located on the town square in downtown Greenville but quickly moved to a new home located on North Ohio Street. In 1997, after 21 years as a non-profit corporation Greenville Rescue came under the authority of the Township of Greenville. In May 2003, Greenville Township Rescue moved to their present building located at 1401 Sater Street Greenville, Ohio. Under the guidance of Chief Steve Wenning and Assistant Chief Brian Phillips, Greenville Township Rescue continues to provide quality Emergency Medical Services to the residents of the City of Greenville and Greenville Township.

 

Greenville Township Rescue has a fleet of 3 Advanced Life Support Ambulances, 1 Basic Life Support Ambulance, 1 Heavy Rescue Vehicle and 2 staff vehicles.

 

Greenville Township Rescue is staffed with 28 Paramedics, 3 Advanced EMTs and 6 EMTs. These dedicated people are a combination of Full Time, Part Time and Volunteer personnel.

 

 In 2008 the squad was awarded the prestigious Star of Life Award. This award is given to exceptional EMS personnel from around the State of Ohio. The squad was nominated for this award by Children's Medical Center of Dayton.

On November 11th, 2009, Greenville Township Rescue put in service 3 new Physio-Control Lifepak 15 Heart Monitors. The Lifepak 15s not only function as a heart monitor but have a defibrillator, pacemaker, pulse Oximeter, ETCO2 and blood pressure devises built into the units. Most importantly, the monitors are capable of performing a diagnostic quality 12 lead EKG in the field. Our personnel have been trained to interpret these EKGs and make a differential diagnosis of a Heart Attack in the field. They will then take appropriate measures to begin treating the heart attack as well as taking steps to get the patient to the most appropriate treatment facillity. The Lifepak 15s are equipped with a modem that allows Greenville Township Rescue paramedics to send the 12 lead EKG to the receiving facillity. The paramedics can then consult directly with the Medical Control Physician at that facillity concerning treatment, destination and transportation issues. The Lifepak 15s are a great addition to our service and will reduce the time of diagnosising and treating heart attacks for the citizens of Greenville Township.

 

Electronic Patient Care Reporting (ePCR) was instituted in March 2012. This greatly reduces the amount of paper that is generated and ultimately saved each year. In 2015, Greenville Township Rescue updated its ePCR System to include Cloud Based Patient Care Reporting and Deparmental Record Keeping. This all but eliminates the use of paper documents and provides the security of Cloud based storage and back-up.

 

In 2015 Greenville Township Rescue provided EMS Stand-by services for community events 88 times. This equates to approximately 347 hours of event coverage at no cost.

 

Greenville Township Rescue also provided in 2015, over 100 Public Assist, hosted 188 EMT/Paramedic students, and 12 CPR courses.
