Livingston County EMS certified in Infant Safe Sleep program, first solo agency in state to do so

Livingston County EMS (LCEMS) has announced they are the first agency of its kind in Michigan to be Infant Safe Sleep certified.

The agency was awarded the Infant Safe Sleep certification last week from the state of Michigan EMS Division.

“An average of 150 infants die each year in Michigan from sleep-related deaths,” stated a release. “That’s about 3 school buses or 5 kindergarten classes. LCEMS wants to help prevent these unnecessary deaths.”

The program trains providers in recognizing what safe sleep is and offers additional educational resources. LCEMS can provide pack n plays to those in need to give infants a safe place to sleep. Since July 2022 when the certification program began, LCEMS has become the 4th department in the state to obtain this certification and the 1st sole EMS agency.

Families looking for more information/resources related to Infant Safe Sleep, are asked to reach out to LCEMS  Education Supervisor, Ryan Dennett at rdennett@livgov.com
