National EMS Week Bates County Memorial

EMS professionals fill many roles. This year, for National EMS Week, we honor their sacrifice and dedication, not only to keeping us safe, but for all the ways they care for our communities. In any given shift, they may fill the role of healthcare professional, emergency manager, social worker, crisis counselor, consoler, or caregiver.  BCMH recognizes and thanks its EMS team for their contributions, as well as all local first responders.
