Emergency Medical Services Week honors Alaska’s EMS professionals
Gov. Michael J. Dunleavy proclaimed May 19-25, 2019, “Emergency Medical Services Week” to honor Alaska’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS) providers. The Emergency Medical Services Office within the Division of Public Health thanked and paid tribute to Alaska’s EMS community on DHSS social media and through other venues. EMS providers were recognized for the time they have to spend away from their own families and loved ones and for placing the needs of others above their own to help Alaska’s communities and patients in times of crisis. The commitment shown by EMS providers to patients, their families and the communities they serve is a true testament to neighbor helping neighbor. Thank you to all of you who do this work and a job well done! Thank you, too, to Gov. Dunleavy for recognizing the many contributions and sacrifices made by EMS providers on behalf of all Alaskans.
