EMS Week 2017 Giving back to those who serve the community

EMS week 2017

As an international first aid charity, we’re proud to help other EMS and First Aid groups. Part of our charitable goal and aim is to always help other first aid charities and organizations within the nerd and pop culture community with similar values.

In honor of National EMS Week 2017, we have decided to help Team Medical Dragon. They are a semi-informal group of individuals within the Mid-Atlantic area. Founded by Tad Pierson, Beth Kee, and Morgan Kee, their core mission is to assist various conventions and events in staffing their first aid departments. They have been assisting numerous conventions within the anime and nerd community with first aid staffing and management since 1987.

EMS Week 2017 is a special time for us and in honor of it, Operation Hammond is proud to announce the donation of a Defibtech Lifeline AED to Team Medical Dragon. The Defibtech LifeLine AED has a highly visible design and includes all mission critical features necessary to provide the most advanced treatment for sudden Cardiac Arrest and CPR. American made and tested to military standards for vibrations and shock, its award winning design is compact, portable, and lightweight.

At Operation Hammond, we firmly believe that AEDs save lives and every organization that provides First Aid services should own one due to their proven ability to save lives. It is our honor and privilege to gift an AED to the members and leadership of Team Medical Dragon in honor of EMS week 2017.
