Help Is Just Moments Away at Monarch Landing
Jun 15, 2017 9:16 AM - Help is always reassuringly, just a moment or two away at Monarch Landing. This is not lost on the residents and is cited as being a deciding factor for some moving into the community. Monarch Landing is in the unique and highly enviable position of having a round-the-clock security team, the members of which are also trained as Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs). What this means, is that there are always at least two professionals on-site, able to intervene immediately on a medical level in case of illness or injury. Jim DiRienzo, a security officer/EMT for Monarch Landing, said that the team undergoes an intensive training program which requires ride along time on an ambulance and time in an emergency room. "We need to pass a state test," he said. "Additionally, we have continuing education each month on different medical topics."
