New Partnership Enables Expanded Services:

On-line Medical Direction helps bring new services to Northwestern Colorado

Steamboat Springs, CO (15 April 2018):

Come summer of 2018 Event Medical Solutions Unlimited LLC (EMS Unlimited) will expand service offerings beyond medical staffing and emergency management to special events. Thanks to a newly formed partnership between EMS Unlimited and the Steamboat Emergency Center more EMTs will be available to serve responders at campaign Wild Fire events.

With each passing day that snow does not fall we come closer and closer to a very busy fire season in the Yampa Valley and surrounding areas. This means more firefighters could be deployed to Wild Fires and more potential for injuries or illness. To help keep those firefighters safe and well cared for EMS Unlimited will begin offering Wild Land Firefighter qualified Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and Paramedics as responders to those fires. Thanks to a cooperative agreement with the Steamboat Emergency Center, EMS Unlimited will have 24/7 access to on-line physicians who will help guide treatment in the austere. Services will be available beginning June 1 of 2018 and offered to government agencies in Rio Blanco, Moffat, Grand, Routt and Jackson Counties.

Now coming into a 7th year of operation EMS Unlimited has grown from a small local business to a recognized leader in special event medical and operational management throughout Colorado and New Mexico. “Our goal has always been to support our peers and the local communities wherever we are working” said EMS Unlimited President Ebin Latrimurti, “It truly is an honor to offer our experienced and professional staff to the firefighters who face extreme danger and adversity almost every day.” Continued Ebin. EMS Unlimited will equip its team with a standard compliment of wildland gear and protective equipment in addition to lifesaving Oxygen, AEDs, IV Fluids and other medical supplies to treat injuries encountered in these situations.

Adding to the capability of EMS Unlimited staff, equipment and protocols The Steamboat Emergency Center will play a vital role in serving this community. 24/7 access to licensed physicians in an Emergency Department will allow EMS Unlimited staff to consult on the best possible treatment, transport and extrication of injured or ill firefighters.
