Over the past seven days Emergency Medical Service (EMS) Week was celebrated locally and nationwide. The purpose of the days between May 15-21 was to bring together local communities and medical personnel to publicize safety and honor the dedication of those who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services of medicine’s “front line.”
The theme this year’s was “EMS: Rising to the Challenge” and certainly the tremendously qualified Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) of the Jackson Parish Ambulance Service District (JPASD) under the leadership of Director Aaron Johnson have done just that for Jackson Parish residents. As part of the celebration scrumptious meals and desserts were served daily at the JPASB Central Office and Training Center located at 115 Watts Street in Jonesboro.
In addition, while every member of the JPASD has been instrumental in the woonderful emergency care of local residents, the performance of three outstanding EMT’s were cited which resulted in each being awarded of the Undisputed Championship Belt for their effort above and beyond the call of duty.
