Serving Our Community
Community education by emergency medical services (EMS) is an essential component of public health and safety. Lake Jackson EMS often works closely with community organizations, schools, and businesses to educate the public on injury prevention, emergency preparedness, and basic life support skills. Community education programs can include CPR and first aid training, disaster preparedness workshops, and injury prevention initiatives. These programs can help to empower community members with the knowledge and skills necessary to respond to emergencies and prevent injuries from occurring.
Community education also serves to strengthen the relationship between Lake Jackson EMS providers and the community we serve, building trust and fostering partnerships that can improve overall health outcomes. By educating the public about EMS, CPR, first-aid, and injury prevention, EMS providers can play a crucial role in promoting public health and safety.
Stop The Bleed
Our training courses and workshops are designed to teach and practice the methods and procedures you’ll need in order to prepare for a variety of emergencies that can occur in everyday life. Similar to how the general public learns and performs CPR, the public must learn proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use their hands, dressings, and tourniquets. Lake Jackson EMS has successfully trained our local police departments, school districts, local business leaders, and many more.

As we get older, changes to our physical and mental well being pose many dangers. Occasionally, the medications used to treat those conditions may cause falls to be more likely. In fact, falls are a leading cause of injury among older adults. Lake Jackson EMS provides fall prevention education and has done so for many of our local Skilled Nursing Facilities as well as our adult Assisted Living Centers.
