Mr. Arnold was involved in a serious motorcycle accident. Several people contacted 911, Emergency Medical Dispatchers coordinated with each other per protocol to get the most accurate information to dispatch appropriate responses . Matthews Fire & EMS and Medic arrived shortly to the scene and severity of accident required additional units. Additional Medic ambulance was dispatched, while current team on scene prepared and provided care for Mr. Arnold. Upon arrival of the second Medic ambulance, Mr. Arnold was transferred to the ambulance and rushed to the trauma center. Mr. Arnold is a survivor today due to effective 911 communication, multi-agency teamwork and excellent patient care.
Please join Medic and Mr. Arnold in congratulating Paramedic Mike Miller, EMT Matthew Deedrick, Paramedic Shawn Kerley, Paramedic David Hodnett, Matthews Fire & EMS, Matthews Police and Medic communications on an outstanding job!
We would also like to extend a special thank you to the Matthews Fire & EMS and the hospital staff of Carolinas Medical Center Main for their assistance and successful teamwork in helping to treat Mr. Arnold. Mr. Arnold’s positive outcome is just another example of Medic's effective community partnerships at work.
