EMT Hitter addresses Kiwanis

What happens when you call 911 for a medical emergency in Wilton? Who decides which services will come to your aid? What should you be doing while waiting for the emergency services to arrive? What can you do to prevent medical emergencies in the first place and prepare for them if they do occur?

These are the kinds of questions that will be addressed by Ron Hitter, past president of the Wilton Volunteer Ambulance Corps and an EMT for 12 years. Mr. Hitter will address the Wilton Kiwanis Club at its weekly lunch meeting on Wednesday, June 11.

The Wilton Volunteer Ambulance Corps maintains two Basic Life Support ambulances at its headquarters at the town hall complex on Danbury Road. Comprised of approximately 50 members, most of whom are EMTs, the volunteer organization answers medical and trauma calls 24/7.  The corps, which is in its 37th year, answers approximately 1,400 calls a year.

Wilton’s oldest service club, Kiwanis meets weekly for lunch at noon at the Episcopal Presbyterian Complex on New Canaan Road. Meetings every Wednesday feature a social hour, catered lunch, and then a speaker of local interest.
