H2H-T Team of two EMT’s trained the Tela firefighters in the proper use and care of the ambulance donated by St. Michael’s College (shipped to Tela by H2H-T). The week’s training included full maintenance of the ambulance, setting up radio communication with the hospital, and driver training competition. A formal ambulance dedication ceremony was held at the Tela firehouse with the Mayor, the firefighters, police, H2H-T and many community leaders.
911 Emergency Communication
H2H-T helped to initiate and coordinate a 9 1 1 system for Tela’s Police Dept., Fire Dept., Red Cross, Hospital, Homeland Security, and the Mayor’s office. The objectives were to establish a centralized 911 Emergency Service and to improve the emergency services and overall security for Tela. H2H-T provided refurbished base radio systems and portable radios which will allow communication during emergency situations.
The request to H2H-T from the Tela police department this year was for 10 pair of handcuffs and 15 mag flashlights. Next year, the request is the “3 B’s” – belts, boots and bullet proof vests.
