Amador Lifeline endorsed by the American Legion Post 108 Ambulance service

Amador Lifeline, a program of the Amador-Tuolumne Community Action Agency- (ATCAA),  is pleased to announce American Legion Post 108 Ambulance Service’s endorsement of the Amador Lifeline  emergency response service. Amador Lifeline’s  local service, although primarily used for medical emergencies, routes calls for fire and police services  when a client pushes their personal help button or by the automated fall alert detection button.

Both  American Legion Ambulance and Amador Lifeline serve clients in Amador and  Calaveras County. Additionally, both programs  provide the highest level of professional  service and continue to demonstrate a strong  personal commitment and investment towards the well-being of each community.

American Legion Ambulance Service once again has “stepped-up” to help  Calaveras County’s most vulnerable citizens by providing to individuals who are in need of the Amador Lifeline service and whose monthly/yearly income is restricted funding  to help underwrite  a portion of their monthly fee.

If you have any questions or know someone in need of our service please contact our Amador Lifeline office at: 209 223-1485 ext. 232 Monday –Friday 10am-4pm. Please feel free to disseminate the attached short endorsement and program flyer to other agencies or departments.

Once again, we thank Al Lennox of the American Legion Post 108 and staff for his/their commitment to our communities. We are very grateful for the confidence shown through their endorsement of the Amador Lifeline program. We are all linked together by our love of community, county and  of a country that allows us to demonstrate daily our commitment to the goodness and generosity towards others.



Amador Public Health: Measles Outbreak Reminds of Vaccination Importance

Sutter Creek, CA – California Department of Public Health confirms 117 cases of measles in the state to date. There are no cases currently in Amador County. Amador County Public Health continues to monitor the outbreak and recognizes that it may continue to spread in California.

“This is a good reminder of the importance of vaccination,” states Dr. Rita Kerr, Amador County Health Officer. “Measles is a very contagious and potentially severe vaccine-preventable disease that spreads through the air and by contact with an infected person.”

Symptoms usually begin with a fever, cough, runny nose and/or red, watery eyes. A red rash occurs a few days later on the face and upper neck, then spreads down the back, trunk, arms and legs. People are contagious from about 4 days before the rash appears through 4 days after it appears.

Anyone suspecting they have measles should CALL their medical provider BEFORE seeking care to avoid exposing others.

Two doses of measles vaccine (MMR) are more than 99 percent effective in preventing measles. If you are unsure of your vaccination status, check with your doctor to see if you need a booster.

Vaccinations are safe, and the benefits far outweigh any risks. Side effects are usually mild, such as soreness where the shot was given. Measles is found in many parts of the world, including Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Vaccination before traveling is recommended.

Amador County Public Health holds immunization clinics on the first and third Tuesdays of each month from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The MMR vaccine is also available at some local pharmacies.

Someone you know could be experiencing a mental illness or crisis.
You can help them.
You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, coworker, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self help care. Anyone can take the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course — first responders, students, teachers, leaders of faith communities, human resources professionals, and caring citizens.
Sometimes, the best first aid is you.
Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community!
