Celebrate Your Local Emergency Medical Service Providers

Celebrate Your Local Emergency Medical Service Providers

Montgomery County fire fighters are called to assist over 100,000 incidents each year. To thank all paramedics and emergency medical technicians for all they do, May 20-26 is observed as Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week throughout the nation in their honor.

The theme for this year's Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week is, “EMS: More than a Job. A Calling." This theme shows the commitment and dedication of the nation’s emergency medical service providers who serve their communities all across the United States.  

"Our EMS team provides an essential service to the communities we serve and we proudly recognize these inspiring and dedicated emergency medical responders who, on a daily basis, go above and beyond the call of duty to save lives, often while putting themselves in harm’s way," said EMS Assistant, Chief Diane Zuspan.

Peanut
“Peanut is a real blessing. I'm very happy that I took a chance on adopting a special needs senior Chihuahua. He's a really sweet dog and has adjusted very well, and he gets along well with Lil Missy Riverdale, another senior dog who was adopted from WHS the year before. Peanut loves the mini-rawhide chew bones and gets around well indoors and outside, despite his vision problem. He's like having a puppy around all the time.”
-Rita Pazzelli

Want to meet more great seniors like Peanut? We’re helping the “Class of 2012” graduate this weekend by offering fee-waived adoptions on all of our older and long-time pet residents! Visit our adoption centers May 18-20 to meet your new best friend!

He will be at the Kennedy Center for three shows beginning August 3.
