The EMS Division also provides community outreach programs.  Hands only CPR is taught to the community in June as a part of the New Mexico Project Heartstart Program and by contacting the Training Coordinator to schedule training.  Fall Prevention training is available to the community in cooperation with the Los Alamos Fall Coalition Committee.  Additional requests for training are welcome and can be arranged through the EMS Division.  Click here to make a request for a station tour or other event.

We feel that the Vial of Life is
such an important program for seniors and others in need. We are proud to offer Vial of Life decals to our community.

We want to thank American Senior Safety Agency Medical Alert Systems for their donation of these decals to our organization.
