This week, May 20-26th, is national Emergency Medical Services (EMS) week. The theme this year is “EMS Strong."
Please join me in recognizing all those working in the Emergency Medical Field. As partners in public safety with the Sheriff’s Office we work closely with all forms of EMS and understand completely the sacrifices, hardships, and sometimes joyous moments this type of work brings.
You choose to work, sometimes on short notice, for long periods of time, and in less than desirable conditions with no complaints or special requests. Your constant efforts to improve peoples lives and ease their pains is admirable. If you know someone employed in the EMS field take the time to thank them for their service and dedication this week.
