Westchester Medical Center Celebrates National Emergency Medical Services Week - May 20-26, 2012

National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week, which is being held May 20-26, is designed to publicly recognize the life-saving work provided by more than 750,000 dedicated EMT’s, Paramedics and first responders and the crucial role these individuals perform in pre-hospital emergency medical care to millions of Americans each year.  Their dedication and commitment is highlighted in this year’s national EMS Week theme, “EMS, more than a job—A CALLING.” 

Whenever lives are at stake, Paramedics, EMT’s and first responders provide urgently needed medical care to residents and visitors throughout the Hudson Valley region.  Often, the dedication, training and skills of our EMS professionals mean the difference between life and death.

EMS Week also features special events and forums that seek to educate the public as well as attract potential recruits interested in careers as public service professionals dedicated to saving lives and helping others.

Westchester Medical Center proudly salutes the EMT’s, Paramedics and first responders of the Hudson Valley region for their dedication and commitment to their profession and to the patients they care for each and every day.
