Public Service Announcement
Paramedics Services Week

May 24 to May 30, 2020
Information for the Public
Release Date: May 25, 2020

The week of May 24 to May 30 we celebrate Paramedics and the important role they play on the frontline. The theme for Paramedic Services Week 2020 is

Pandemic: Paramedics on the Front Line and demonstrates the important role that paramedics play on the front lines of the healthcare system during a pandemic.

During a global pandemic health emergency, paramedics play an integral role on the front lines of healthcare. Paramedics are often an early point of contact in the public arena. If not called upon to respond to YOU in need when YOU call, they are “running toward” the risks associated with a pandemic response when they arrive.


Mayor Wilson (Wally) Andersen, the 12th Council, Management, and Staff would like to wish our Paramedics and EMS Technicians a wonderful week!

Thank you for all that you do!
