EMS Week proclaimed in Jackson County

During a recent meeting of the Jackson County Board of Commissioners, a resolution was unanimously approved, which proclaims the week of May 21-27 as Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week.

The legislation, which was passed in the form of Resolution 97-17, describes emergency medical services as "a vital public service." Further, it states that members of EMS teams are ready to provide lifesaving care to those in need 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week, which reflects this year's theme of "Always in Service."

The commissioners stated the EMS system consists of emergency physicians, nurses and medical technicians, paramedics, firefighters, dispatchers, educators, administrators and others. Access to such quality emergency care, the resolution reads, "Dramatically improves the survival and recovery rate of those who experience sudden illness and injury."

In closing, it was stated that EMS Week provides the general public an opportunity to recognize the value and accomplishments of EMS providers who engage in thousands of hours of specialized training and continuing education in order to enhance their lifesaving skills.
