MOORE, OK - EMSSTAT, an ambulance service owned and operated by Norman Regional Health System, began providing emergency medical services (EMS) to the City of Moore on Thursday, October 1, 2015.
“EMSSTAT is excited to provide emergency medical services to the Moore community,” said Richie Splitt, Chief Administrative Officer of the HealthPlex and Norman Regional Moore. “EMSSTAT and Norman Regional have a strong connection to this vibrant community and this new partnership not only strengthens that bond, it emphasizes our commitment to high quality, life-saving care.”
Eddie Sims, manager of EMSSTAT and paramedic, said EMSSTAT is looking forward to serving the City of Moore and becoming a member of its outstanding public safety team. EMSSTAT will provide services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The organization has also hired an additional 15 paramedics. The ambulance station is located at 19th Street and Eastern in Moore, but ambulances will be seen throughout the community and at many public events.
In July, the Moore city council voted to select EMSSTAT as its ambulance service provider. EMSSTAT provides paramedic-level care to the communities of Moore, Norman and unincorporated Cleveland County.
Paramedics are highly-trained professionals that initiate advanced airways, intravenous therapy, administer medications, use cardiac monitors and apply splints and bandaging to stabilize medical and trauma patients. EMSSTAT also offers hazardous materials response, special event coverage, disaster response and a tactical medic team.
