The public is encouraged to participate and attend a special Friday Night Cruise to honor Fremont County EMS crews and the service they provide to the citizens of the county and Wind River Reservation. Police, fire, and EMS will participate in the cruise on Friday, May 22 in Riverton. The event is part of National EMS Week, May 17-23.
“All of the crews have really stepped up these past few months, “said Diane Lane, AMR-FC Operations Manager. “They’ve picked up extra hours, gone above and beyond—everything they’ve done and continue to do is so very appreciated by all.”
“These unsung heroes always go head first into the situation to help our fellow person in need…and when they are done, off they go to help the next,” said Fremont County Commission Chairman Travis Becker. “We are so fortunate to have so many dedicated individuals in our community. It is you who help define what our greatness is and will always be.”
President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week in 1974 to celebrate EMS practitioners and the important work they do in our nation’s communities. EMS Week is celebrated each year during the third week in May, and brings communities together to honor those who provide lifesaving services. This year’s EMS Week theme is “Ready Today. Preparing for Tomorrow,” presented by the American College of Emergency Physicians and the National Association of EMTs (NAEMT). The theme is particularly meaningful in 2020, as AMR crews stand ready to provide medical transportation for those affected by the COVID-19 crisis and everyday medical emergencies that occur in our communities.
