Incline fire district celebrating national EMS week

The North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District will be celebrating National Emergency Medical Services Week over the next several weeks.

Celebrated nationally during the week of May 17-23, this special week acknowledges the outstanding services performed by our first responders nationwide.

This 42nd annual event brings together local communities and medical personnel to publicize safety and honor those who serve on the front line, providing day-to-day life-saving services for those in need.

This year’s theme, “EMS STRONG,” recognizes the commitment that emergency medical personnel make to the communities they serve.

“Our dedication to the mission of providing round-the-clock care for our community is something we take very seriously,” said NLTFPD Chief Mike Brown. “Our partnerships with local and regional medical facilities and law enforcement are an integral piece to quality patient care for our citizens.”

In the coming days, the district will be hosting ambulance tours at local schools, and educating children about the Emergency Medical System, how to recognize a medical emergency and the importance of dialing 911 in case of a medical emergency.
