CES responded to 449 calls in December. 2016 has been the busiest year for CES yet with a total call volume of 5,015.
In December, general illness was by far the most frequent reason for calls (69). The next most frequent reasons were falls (64), trouble breathing (38) ,motor vehicle collisions (26), and chest pain (20).
We responded to people aged 70-plus on 48% of calls in December. The next most common age group was 40-69 (34%), followed by 20-39 (13%) and less than 20 (4%). Females made up 55% of the people who received care from our team.
Ready. Willing. Able.

December 30th, 2016
Chief Ken Beers has been with CES since 2001, and this year he's celebrating 40 years as a certified EMS professional. He was just 18 when he knew he'd spend his life helping others in need.
"A friend of mine called to let me know about an opportunity with the Squad. I was working at Monroe Community College directing the Emergency Medical Service program and was being encouraged to move up the administrative ladder at the College. But, I wanted to back closer to EMS, so I applied. Now, I am the full-time Chief responsible for all aspects of the operations and business of CES. My most memorable moment at CES was the morning we got called to the Canandaigua Academy for a shooting. One of my kids was at the school. There is nothing as unnerving as having one of your own involved in any call."
When not at the station, Ken spends time with his wife, two sons and one grandson, and he also enjoys renovating depressed homes.
Starting New Year's Day, you'll find Ken in the Daily Messenger sharing his thoughts in a new weekly column about proper safety preparation and response.
