Letter: Thank a first responder

To the editor:

Each year, more than 240 million 9-1-1 calls are made to request support from police officers, firefighters and EMS crews across the nation.

Our local paramedics, EMT’s and first responders are critically important to our communities in times of emergency. 

These folks take often care of us when we are the most vulnerable and suffering illnesses and trauma that are rapidly getting worse with time. In these times of crisis there is often no time to thank them for what they do. That‘s why on Tuesday, May 20, Region’s Hospital will host its annual Rig Wash and take the time to honor these heroes.  On this day, the physicians and nurses of Regions Hospital show our appreciation by washing the emergency vehicles of our local EMS agencies.

Every day, we witness the survival of patients who survive because of the skills and quick actions by these health care professionals.

Please join us as we say “thank you” to our first responders during National EMS Week.

RJ Frascone, MD
Medical Director, Regions Hospital Emergency
