EMS Week 2010: A Thank You Message

EMS Week 2010

May 17, 2010 - EMS Week 2010 is May 16-22, and ZOLL wants to take this opportunity to thank all the men and women in EMS for their exceptional service to their communities. Every day, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and paramedics are the first to respond to emergencies, and their early response in cases such as sudden cardiac arrest or stroke can mean the difference between a long-term disability or a full recovery.

Here at ZOLL we care both about the patients and about the EMTs and paramedics who treat them. We are committed to rescuer safety while they perform their jobs, in daunting and sometimes dangerous situations.

This year’s theme underscores the commitment that EMTs and paramedics bring to their work everyday:  "Anytime. Anywhere. We’ll be there." Let's take a moment to say simply, "Thank you."
