Community Health and Paramedicine

COMMUNITY HEALTH AND PARAMEDICINE

The Easton Community Health and Paramedicine program is a combination of the efforts of the Easton Fire Department and the Department of Health and Community Services.  The program is managed by the Town's EMS/MIH/Public Health Officer. The goal of this collaboration is to implement an effective and accessible Mobile Integrated Health (MIH) Program.  By investing in proactive and preventative care,  the program seeks to have our residents remain in the community by providing supports that limit the need for emergency care whenever possible.

What is Community Paramedicine and Mobile Integrated Health and What Benefit Does It Provide to Easton Residents?

Fire Chief Alexander, Health & Community Services Director Kennedy, and Public Health Officer Vamosi presented the program to the Select Board on November 1st. A copy of that presentation is here, and the video is below. 



Current Programs Available - As of November 2021, the Community Health and Paramedicine program offers Children with Special Health Care Needs, Community Health Clinics, Residential Sharps Collection, and Child Passenger Safety.
