MADD often acknowledges and thanks the heroes in law enforcement who work to keep our roads safe, but this week we want to honor another group of brave men and women who provide lifesaving contributions to the health and safety of our country: the emergency medical service providers. This week is National Emergency Medical Services Week, a week to honor all of those who dedicate their lives to helping others.
As stated in the 2012 Emergency Medical Services Week Presidential Proclamation, “emergency medical services personnel demonstrate a profound commitment to our country and to our common humanity. Day after day, they answer the call to serve -- to step into crisis and spark hope where it grows dim. This week, let us pay tribute to these selfless individuals and renew our promise to provide them with the support and services they need to protect their communities.” Read the full Presidential Proclamation.
As first responders, EMS personnel provide vital services in the aftermath of a drunk driving crash. We honor you and thank you for all you do.
