Communication in an Emergency Just Got Easier!

Communication in an Emergency Just Got Easier!

Thanks to West Virginia, an EMT Communication Card was recently released. 

“When we do a treatment ‘is your pain better or worse, the same?’ and I thought ‘that’s not good enough’ we have to have something that we can use to communicate more effectively,” says Lt. Chris Collins with the St. Albans Fire Department.

A lot of us have family or friends that have a hard time communicating with words, but they are able to communicate with pictures. From Down syndrome to Autism to Deaf/Hard of hearing, this card will be able to help people communicate their symptoms or feelings while providing First Responders and Doctors important information to treat them.
