We’d like to congratulate local resident Nathan Egan on completing his recent Eagle Scout service project!
Nathan worked with Athens County EMS and Athens County 9-1-1 to develop a pamphlet that educates citizens on the best way to call for help in an emergency situation. The booklet discusses cell phone vs landline calls to 9-1-1, the need for the dispatcher to know a specific address where help is needed, calling when you are on the road or in a public place, and other ways to make sure emergency crews arrive in the fastest time possible. The booklet also contains a place to list the patient’s pertinent medical information such as allergies and history, as well as a separate list for current medications and dosages.
Nathan wanted to do a project of this nature to serve not just his local community, but get the word out to as many citizens as possible using internet downloads and multiple media sites. He will be distributing the printed pamphlets to all five Athens County EMS stations. He has distribution plans throughout Meigs County as well over the next few weeks.
Nathan Egan is 17 years old. He has been a boy scout for the past six years. He is a member of Troop #299 in Western Meigs County. Greg McCall is the scout master. He is currently at the rank of Life Scout and is completing the requirements to attain the rank of Eagle Scout this November.
Nathan is a senior at the Ohio Connections Academy and plans to attend college in the fall of 2015 for a degree in computer science. Nathan lives in Syracuse with his mother, Wendy Egan and in Haydenville with his father and step mother, Joe and Stephanie Egan. His father has been a full time paramedic for Athens County EMS (SEOEMS) for the past 21 years.
Athens County EMS and Athens County Emergency Management will have a .pdf file of Nathan’s pamphlet available their websites (www.AthensEMS.org & http://www.athensema.org) for free downloading.
