Haiti - Health : Project of a 9-1-1 service in Cap-Haitien
Brian J. Connor, CEO of the American company "LifeLine Ambulance Service" and Ted White Vice President of "Clinical Services", recently spent a week in the North of Haiti, to the Hospital Sacré Cœur of Milot and to Justinian University Hospital (HUJ), where they provided training on pre-hospital care and emergency medicine to over 65 attendees consisting of doctors, nurses and Community Health Volunteer Workers from the northern section of Haiti.

Brian Connor and Ted White discussed with officials of HUJ of Cap Haitien, in the implementation of a 9-1-1 emergency response. Connor said his firm has begun the work on creation of this program for Cap-Haitien, which he anticipates should be up and running within six to nine months. The phone number that residents of Cap-Haitien will use to activate the emergency system is 116, which has been assigned by the Ministry of Health (MSPP).

As part of the creation of this service 9-1-1, Ambulance Service LifeLine will donate four ambulances to be used in Cap-Haitien; additionally, the company has invited 25 doctors and nurses to attend training at the LifeLine facility in Woburn, MA, later this year. The Haitian health care officials will remain in the United States for a month for training. They will then return to Haiti to train the rest of their community workers.

LifeLine Ambulance Service has invested significant time and resources to improve the healthcare delivery system on the island of Haiti. Connor said that his company will provide the training and the ambulances to Cap-Haitien at no cost.
