About these proceedings

Introduction

The Police Emergency Unit concept for our Community has proven to be unique and highly practical. Highly skilled teams of college trained, physician- supervised Police Offi­ cers render emergency care for trauma and illness with remarkable expertise. The roving, constantly on duty concept has distinct merits. It does provide a low cost system to en­ sure the delivery of emergency medical care to a community with a minimum of confu­ sion and a maximum of efficiency. Special acknowledgement is noted herewith for Mrs. Candace Otte, R. N. , Dr. Frede­ rick A. Doornbos, Dr. Ramon B. Lang, Dr. Lee R. Pool, Dr. John R. Wilson, and P. Rode­ rick Smithson, the E. M. T.
