April 1, 2010-Thanks to the 2009 AFG Grant award, we have taken delivery of 2 brand new Stryker Power-Pro Cots and 2 Stryker Stair-Pro stair chairs. The new cots enable us to lift patients up to 700lbs with the touch of a button. This will greatly reduce the risk of back injury to our members while increasing safety for the patient during transport. The new chairs feature a track system that make moving a patient down stairs much safer, again greatly reducing the risk of injury to our members and patients. Stryker representatives visited the Squad to perform an in-service training for all of our members before officially putting the equipment to use in the field. We are excited to be able to upgrade our services to the residents and businesses of Totowa. For more info on Stryker EMS equipment, visit http://www.ems.stryker.com/
