Silver Spring Ambulance & Rescue Association will be offering a Blood Pressure Screening at Giant Food Stores on the Carlisle Pike in Silver Spring Township on Saturday, May 11th from 10am-2pm. Stop by to have your blood pressure checked and talk to our providers about our upcoming EMS Week celebration!
Silver Spring Ambulance & Rescue Association has recently been approved and will now carry Epi-Pen Auto-Injectors on our ambulances. With the assistance of Dr. Rory O'Neill, our medical director, our providers completed the Pennsylvania Department of Health mandated training programs for Epi-Pen administration.
We are proud to be one of the few Basic Life Support services to have Epi-Pen Auto-Injectors stocked on our ambulances. This treatment can be a critical component in a severe anaphylaxis (allergic) reactions.
