Georgetown EMS

Mission: Lifeline®

Mission: Lifeline® is an effective, efficient program that saves and improves lives. It helps communities and regions form effective coalitions of hospitals, ambulance services, non-transport medical first response agencies, emergency communications centers, emergency medical service regulatory/medical direction agencies, local government, local media and payers.

Agencies earn Gold recognition with a minimum patient volume of at least eight (8) STEMI patients transported directly to a STEMI Receiving Center for Primary PCI and/or STEMI Referring Hospital for fibrinolytic administration and for achieving 75% or higher adherence over at least one consecutive 24-month interval all Mission: Lifeline® EMS quality measures to improve the quality of care for STEMI patients.

In addition to meeting the above requirements, Georgetown Fire Department also achieved at least 75% on the 2019 Plus Measure — percent of adult Out-Of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest patients resuscitated on scene with sustained ROSC of at least 20 minutes, maintained to arrival at the emergency department, who has a 12-lead ECG performed in the field.

Our participation in Get With The Guidelines®/Mission: Lifeline® demonstrates our commitment to quality care. We are proud to be a part of the American Heart Association’s® efforts to turn guidelines into lifelines.
