The City of Collinsville partnered with Pat & Leonard Reitz to bring you the Hometown Heroes Banner Program. The Banners will be on display in Uptown Collinsville until after Veteran's Day 2016. This is the first year for the banner program and it has been a huge success with over 140 banners purchased by local family members of our armed services.
Below is the video of the Dedication Ceremony held September 24, 2016. Thank you to Pat & Leonard Reitz for organizing this great program, and of course, thank you to the Veterans and their families for their dedication and service to our country.
The Mission Lifeline award was recently received by the Collinsville Fire Department. The Mission Lifeline is an initiative started by the American Heart Association to address gaps in cardiac care with the goal of improving outcomes through a combined effort between EMS, Emergency Room, and the cardiac catheterization lab. The program is a coordinated and proactive system that allows both EMS and hospital staff to function as a single team with the purpose of improving survival and over all outcomes from acute coronary syndromes. The parameters used to measure success are based on a 90 min time window from first medical contact to the revascularization of the effected artery. In addition, the department is rated on a set of protocols for which patients should receive a 12- Lead ECG in the field and our compliance to these protocols. The Collinsville Fire Department has received the Silver award this year, a step up from the Bronze level recognition received last year. This designation indicated we are an effective partner in improving overall outcomes and reducing the likelihood of significant disability or death. In 2015, we diagnosed and treated 11 ST- Elevated myocardial infarctions with excellent outcomes occurring in all cases. These are 11 residents who previously would have experienced lengthy delays in their care and the probability of a negative outcome would be high.
At the City Council Meeting June 27th, 2016, Mission Lifelife Director Art Miller presented Captain Tim Rainey, along with Mayor John Miller & City Manager Mitch Bair the award from the American Heart Association.
