Choptank Electric Trust, Inc. has made a $5000 donation to the Talbot County Paramedic Foundation’s Operation Save Heart effort to purchase new Lifepack 15 monitor/defibrillators for the Talbot County Department of Emergency Services’ EMS Division. The new monitors are an important advancement in the ability of EMS paramedics to monitor and treat patients.
The donation is made possible through the generous support of Choptank Electric’s member customers which participate in Operation Round Up. Operation Round Up® is Choptank Electric Cooperative’s community service assistance program. The concept is to extend the principle on which electric cooperatives were built over 75 years ago – neighbor helping neighbor – and as a Touchstone Energy Cooperative to follow one of the core principals – Commitment to Community. “Small change that changes lives” is the foundation upon which Operation Round Up is built.
This simple and rewarding way to enable members to contribution funds for local charities, needy individuals and service organizations is operated as the non-profit Choptank Electric Trust, Inc. The donation was coordinated through the Trust’s Talbot County Director Michael Boyle. Additional information can be obtained from Choptank Electric’s website www.choptankelectic.coop or by calling (877) 892-0001.
“This donation assists the Talbot Paramedic Foundation in our mission to provide Talbot’s EMS personnel with the very best technology available as they work in our communities every day to save lives,” stated Paramedic Foundation President Wayne Dyott.
Additional information on the Paramedic Foundation’s efforts to replace the monitor/defibrillators can be located on the foundation’s website,www.talbotparamedic.org or by contacting Dyott at (410) 310-3921.
