Happy EMS week!!

Happy EMS week!!

National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week is May 21-27. Day or night, weekday or weekend, holidays and special family and personal times, EMS is called to help the sick and injured. And EMS responders respond with attention and compassion. They meet you at the worst time of your life. Who wants or looks forward to an ambulance ride? Who is waiting for a heart attack or life threatening traumatic injury? No one… yet every day, WMC Ambulance and area first responders are there to help.

There are 25 WMC EMS staff providing nearly all the ambulance transports in Winneshiek County, assisted by the 56 volunteer responders in Winneshiek County.

Hats off to all EMS providers for your care and compassion, and your willingness to respond to life’s emergencies. There are members of the community who would not be here if it was not for your speed, and your conviction to maintaining your skills and knowledge to detect and treat life-threatening emergencies.
