GREEN RIVER — Emergency medical technicians are not just ambulance drivers. Many EMTs are eager to do more in their communities like offering preventative care, chronic care management, helping to avoid hospital readmissions and other social services.

Castle Rock Ambulance Services Chief EMT John Taylor returned from the EMS World Expo, which took place in Nashville, Tennessee, Oct. 29 through Nov. 2. He reported to the Castle Rock Hospital District board about Mobile Integrated Healthcare-Community Paramedic services, a national movement to integrate emergency medical services into the health care system as care providers and repeal laws prohibiting insurance companies from paying for EMS.
