Trotwood Fire Department Launches Community Paramedicine Program

Charles WheelerCommunity News

The Trotwood Fire Department is proud to announce the implementation of a Community Paramedicine Program.

Sean Lehrter, a 25-year veteran of the Trotwood Fire & Rescue department has been promoted to Community Paramedicine Coordinator and will be the driving force behind the implementation of this program. The program will improve access to healthcare and aid in disease and injury prevention by helping patients manage chronic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.  Community paramedics can conduct wellness checks, provide referrals as required, and implement initiatives that can help improve the quality of life of the citizens of Trotwood.   “This innovative program is another way the city is working to ensure the health and welfare of our citizens.  We want to provide follow-up care in the comfort of one’s home as an extension of our passion for service to others”, said Stephanie Kellum, Deputy City Manager.

The goal of this program is to provide follow-up care when individuals are released from area hospitals. “By assessing the physical, psychological, social, and environmental situation, Paramedic Lehrter (who is also a registered nurse) will then be able to identify community resources that would allow the patient to remain safe and healthy in their own home”, said Richard Haacke – Fire Chief.
