Residents of Geneva City and the townships of Geneva, Austinburg, Harpersfield, and Trumbull
We continue to take our leadership role in EMS very seriously. Everything we do challenges the status quo, we think and act differently; from how we stand up our infrastructure, to our approach to each ambulance response. Everything we think, say, and do, is in the best interest of the patient.
EMS is more than just ambulance service. It includes the Public Safety answering point, the dispatch center, EMT's and Paramedics from our auxiliary who respond first, the ambulance care and transport, our medical director, ER doctors and nurses, air medical, hospital receiving facilities, governmental and medical oversight.
In the near future Northwest Ambulance will provide more services in the home as Community Paramedicine becomes a reality in Ohio. Our program is in place and we will be ready to roll it out as soon as the Ohio Legislature makes it possible for us to do so.
Please take this time to renew your 2015 Northwest Ambulance District Annual Membership. It may be the most important thing you do should you or your family have a medical emergency.
I remain; very truly yours,
Vincent T. Gildone EMTP / CHSIV

To all of our CPR Clients:
In attempts to keep up with the times Northwest Ambulance has decided to change the ways of signing up for CPR classes that we host at our facility. This change will not only decrease the amount of phone calls coming into our office but allow for better money management and attendee tracking with pre-registration and prepaying. It will also allow us to better keep records of all students taught here at NAD in case replacement cards are needed in the future.
With that being said, we are switching over to an internet based payment and registration system. The link to this site can be found on our website, www.northwestambulance.com. As of July 1st we will also be increasing the cost of our classes to $15.00. This is still considerably less amount that almost all other classes offered in the area. Payment will be accepted by online check, credit card or PayPal. Special arrangements may be made for cash payments but all attendees must be pre-paid.
Please follow the link to sign your employees up for the appropriate classes. We apologize for any inconvenience this will cause but it will make things 100 % easier on our side. We will be here to assist you with any questions / concerns you may have.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and willing to work with us through any kinks that may arise.

The flu is upon us...
If you are sick, stay home!
Remember frequent and thorough handwashing!
Everyone especially children should practice hand-cough and sneeze hygiene at home and at school or work. If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow, not your hands.
Get a flu shot!
Flu is very contagious and is spread by ways such as coughing and sneezing.
Symptoms: Fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, headache, chills, muscle pain and fatigue.
