Livingston County proclaims Emergency Medical Services Week

The Livingston County Board of Supervisors has proclaimed May 15-21 as Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week throughout Livingston County.

The week celebrates and honors all EMS practitioners and their frontline partners. This year’s EMS Week theme is “Rising to the Challenge,” reminding residents that every day EMS is responding, supporting, and caring for the needs of our communities.

“With performing such a difficult job day in and day out, it’s essential we take the time to recognize and show our appreciation for everyone involved in EMS,” said Livingston County EMS Director Karen Dewar. “Our County EMS practitioners and frontline responders faithfully meet the life-saving needs of our residents every day of the year. From responding to a cardiac arrest inside a home to treating multiple injuries after a car accident on the highway, they are always there when we need them and that’s something I think we all can praise and appreciate.”
