Honoring our Heroes: It’s National EMS Week!
NOTE: This news article is an archived post that was posted on the date above. The information contained in this post was applicable for that date only. Some of the information below may have expired.
At some point, we will each have to deal with an emergency health situation, either in our own lives or in the lives of our loved ones. Emergencies are always scary and stressful, but our calm, focused, experienced EMS professionals always help us navigate through troubled times.
Without our dedicated EMS (Emergency Medical Services) professionals, we would not be able to keep our communities healthy. Without EMS, we wouldn’t experience as many medical miracles as we do. As Your Bank About Town, we want to thank our EMS professionals who always answer the call for help in unforeseen, difficult situations.
To our EMS professionals:
Thank you for rushing to our side.
Thank you for keeping our loved ones and us safe.
Thank you for being the calm voice of reason and the steady hand of safety in some of our darkest hours.
You are heroes, today and every day.
