To mark May 15th through 21st as “Emergency Medical Services Week” in Pennsylvania, Senator Tom Killion (R-9) presented a resolution to the Brookhaven Volunteer Fire Company to recognize its firefighters and EMTs for their service to the community.
“Since the formation of the Brookhaven Volunteer Fire Company which was chartered on June 7, 1922, it has provided area residents with quality service, answering the call in all types of emergency situations,” Killion said. “It’s important that we recognized their daily contributions and the risks they face to keep us safe.”
Killion voted for two Senate Resolutions this week recognizing the service and dedication of Pennsylvania’s Emergency Medical Service providers.
In addition to presenting EMTs with a resolution, Senator Killion toured the Fire/EMS station. Brookhaven Volunteer Fire Company members showed Senator Killion EMS equipment and ambulances used to provide emergency medical services to the community.
Senate Resolution 376 designated the week of May 15th through 21st as “Emergency Medical Services Week” in Pennsylvania and Senate Resolution 377 designated May 18th as “EMS for Children Day” in Pennsylvania.
“These resolutions honor the entire network of emergency medical responders, from ambulance attendants and paramedics to firefighters, police officers, and emergency room doctors and nurses who render aid in the wake of sudden, life-threatening illness and injury,” Killion said. “These first responders provide life-saving care, often at great risk to themselves, and because of their dedication and professionalism our communities and their residents are safer.”
