EMS Professionals Recognized

It's National EMS Week! This annual event recognizes the extraordinary dedication and lifesaving efforts of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) professionals who are at the forefront of providing critical care in our communities. EMS professionals attended the Daviess County Fiscal Court and Owensboro City Commission meetings last week as officials read proclamations declaring this May 21-27 EMS Week locally. Thank you for all you do!
