From Delaware County’s District Attorney’s Office Official Facebook Page:
I was delighted to join Rep. Jennifer O’Mara at the Marple Township Ambulance Corps today to check out their newly acquired narcotic safe system, NARCID. It’s a tool that will help the EMS keep the medications that they carry for pain or sedation safe and secure. My office was happy to contribute to this worthwhile new tool.
~~MTAC Thanks You Both for your continued support to the Marple Twp. Ambulance Corps.~~
The Broomall Rotary stopped by the new station and provided lunch for the crews. Thank You so much for lunch.
