    It is Unique.

    It is one of a kind. No other community in the United States is known by the name "ALVO". Early settlers had come to this area as early as 1869, they had established post-offices, school district and towns. The railroad was the main means of transportation , so towns were established along it's lines.

    Alvo reportedly received its name from the first child born after the community began to form around the depot. Her name was Alvo and she was the daughter of the railroad's master.

Alvo Rescue Squad News

Alvo Rescue Squad awarded Nebraska EMS for Children decal!EMSC114

The red equipment rocker shows that both ambulances have 100% of the equipment recommended by the EMSC Program and Advisory Council to care for pediatric patients - including infant and child seats, pediatric backboards, traction splints, and a separate jump bag for pediatric patients. The first bag was donated by Lincoln Kiwanis Clubs. When 80% of our members complete additional training in pediatric emergencies, the Training rocker will be awarded and when the Squad sponsors a pediatric event in Alvo, the Community Rocker will be awarded.

Next Meeting - Wednesday, 12 March, 1900 Fire and Rescue Meeting Room

Training - Omaha Pediatric Transport Protocol and Pediatric Burn Trauma

 

The only information we can release is the number of times we are dispatched - so here goes. We have been dispatched 11 times so far this year.

We have been asked if information about rescue calls could be included in the Alvo on line newsletter. Due to recent changes to the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the short answer is NO. Actually, since 2005, federal law has prohibited health care providers from releasing any information that identifies patients. Names, addresses, age, gender, medical and mental health conditions are all Protected Health Information and can't be shared with the public.

One of the requirements for health care providers - including rescue squads - is to notify patients of their rights with regard to their personal health care information, so here is a link to the 5 page document that all our patients will be given when any care or transport is provided.
