Senate Adopts EMS Resolutions

The Senate yesterday adopted two Resolutions introduced by Senator Randy Vulakovich recognizing the service and dedication of Pennsylvania’s Emergency Medical Service providers.

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,” said Senator Vulakovich, Chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee.  “These first responders often provide life-saving care at great risk to themselves, responding to the scene of brutal crimes, raging fires, and devastating traffic accidents.”
