Senate Adopts EMS Resolutions

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

One resolution designated the week of May 17th through 23rd as “Emergency Medical Services Week” in Pennsylvania and the second designated May 20th 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.”
