GREEN RIVER — Ciner made significant donation to the Castle Rock EMS last week that will aid in training for personnel and assistance with patients.
The service purchased the Laerdal Airway Simulation (LAS) Management Trainer that will allow EMT’s to train on treatments that include using a BVM to assist in breathing for the patient, inserting nasal and oral airways, inserting a king LT airway, and inserting ET tubes for intubations.
Ryan Recker, Assistant Chief of Castle Rock EMS said, “the LAS allows us to simulate real things that can happen when inserting an airway. Making sure the airway seals correctly and is inserted correctly can now be simulated with the LAS. This trainer will even simulate vomit in the event the airway is not inserted properly.”
“This trainer allows the EMT’s to be prepared for real life situations that involve airway problems such as respiratory distress & respiratory arrest,” Recker added.
Ciner’s $3,000 donation purchased the LAS trainer for Castle Rock EMS.
“We are glad to help our first responders,” said Craig Rood, Site Manager of Ciner Wyoming. “This training device will allow them to simulate real life situations that help them save lives”.
