In many emergency medical situations the response time is critical to the final outcome. The addition of the Castle Valley EMRs means quicker response to emergencies for our community.

Thanks to everyone in Grand County and Castle Valley whose contributions made this possible.

THE TOWN NEEDS YOUR HELP
TO CONTROL TUMBLEWEEDS


WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Mow before the plant goes to seed.
Compost or transport while it is still green, otherwise you will spread more seeds. Each plant is capable of dispersing 250,000 seeds.
Burn when plant is dry. (Check our pages on the burn window and fire safety.)

Plant competitive species of plants.

Tumbleweeds don’t like lawn or well-irrigated gardens.

Don't let the weeds pile up against fences or in ditches.

CASTLE VALLEY EMR TEAM IS IN ACTION!

After lots of training and preparation the Castle Valley EMR team is serving Castle Valley and the local neighborhood. Thanks to Grand County Emergency Medical Service who provided the training, the ambulance and equipment and is providing ongoing oversight of this team. Here are some pictures of the whole team at a recent joint training event.

When a medical emergency is reported in Castle Valley Grand County EMS and Castle Valley EMRs are paged simultaneously. Both respond as rapidly as possible. The Castle Valley EMRs usually arrive first because of the difference in travel distance. The CVEMRs can begin to assess the patient and provide limited initial treatment. They are in radio contact with the Moab EMTs who are in route with more technical equipment and higher levels of medical training.
