Celebrate our EMS communities

Sean Caffrey

The third week in May is recognized at National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) week. Considering this I would like to take a moment to publicly thank all of the individuals in Summit County who have devoted their time and talents to being there for all of us in the event of a medical emergency.

While the dedicated professionals at the Summit County Ambulance Service are certainly among those we should take a moment to thank, there are many other individuals and organizations throughout the County who also provdide essential elements of our emergency response system.

Those groups include local ski patrols, law enforcement agencies, fire districts, the Summit County Communications Center, our local hospital and clinics, as well as the Flight for Life program. Please join me in taking a moment to thank them all this week, and thanks to the community as a whole for supporting our truly exceptional EMS partnership.
