Edmonson County Judge Executive Wil Cannon signed a proclamation last week recognizing this week as "Emergency Medical Services Week" in Edmonson County.
"The employees of Edmonson County Ambulance Service work diligently to provide high quality emergency pre-hospital care to the citizens and visitors of Edmonson County," said Cannon in a statement at the signing. "Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians receive continuing education on the latest advances in pre-hospital emergency medicine, enabling them to provide the best possible care for Edmonson County residents."
This year’s theme is “EMS Strong: Beyond The Call”.
"Please take a few moments to recognize those individuals who have dedicated their lives to providing life-saving care whenever and wherever it is needed and go “Beyond The Call” to work for the betterment of our communities and Edmonson County," said Cannon.
