EMS Week 2014 is next week, May 19-23. This is an annual opportunity for us as an ambulance service to recognize the support of our communities. It is also an opportunity to specifically recognize the dedication and commitment made on an ongoing basis by the many men and women that serve as first responders, EMTs, and paramedics. Here in Stevens County, we have over 100 people that serve as volunteers responding to medical calls for service. These people include first-responders that serve on one of the following first-responder teams: Donnelly Fire Rescue, Chokio First Responders, Hancock First Responders, Herman First Responders, Cyrus First Responders. These people also include our local fire departments and law enforcement agencies, and the 50+ people that serve as EMTs and Paramedics with the Stevens County Ambulance Service and Ortonville Ambulance Service.
We invite you to stop down on Wednesday, May 21, from 4 to 7. We’ll have hot dogs and brats on the grill, CPR demonstrations, tours of our new ambulance, fire truck tours, and more! We’ll also be recognizing Jim Gillis for his 21 years of service to SCAS and congratulating him on his retirement. So please stop down and come visit us on Wednesday! We’ll see you then!
