Marion Co. EMS Newsletter
As March arrives so does Spring time, however in Kansas you
don’t know from one day to the next if it’s going to be SPRING or if its’ going
to be WINTER still. So don’t put away
your EMS coats quite yet. Daffodils are
starting to show their green so SPRING is coming, I am sure of it. I have high hopes with the renewal of green
grass and flowers we will have a great SPRING for Marion Co. EMS. The EMS Advisory Council is continuing to
meet once a month and moving forward. I
believe we have a great Advisory team and together we will accomplish many goals.

Go With H2O
What is the substance that contains no
calories, makes up 60 percent of our
weight and is practically free? The answer is WATER. Two thirds of
bodies are composed of water, making it the body’s most vital nutrient.
people underestimate their need for water. It is recommended that we

I don’t like the taste, you may say? Become the master of disguise
mix lemon or lime slices in your water cup. Perhaps a splash of fruit juice

Try making water a drink option at mealtime or snacks. Offer children
when they want to snack just before a scheduled meal. Often we think we

Goes TO: Frances Mueller
started with Marion CO. EMS 27 years ago (1988). Frances is an experienced EMT
for the Tampa Crew. I had the pleasure
of speaking with the Tampa Senior Center and they all said that Frances had a
heart of gold. Frances usually takes 500 plus hours for Tampa monthly so she is
very dedicated at her EMS job. Frances
attends crew meetings and is always energetic about attending continuing
education classes to keep her skills updated.
Mueller, THANK YOU for your dedication and devotion to Marion Co. EMS. People like you are what make Marion Co. EMS
a great team.
