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?
