National Emergency Medical Services Week – May 2021
On behalf of the Town of Colchester, we would like to recognize the staff and volunteer Emergency Medical Service providers of Colchester Rescue Squad and Colchester Technical Rescue for National EMS Week!
2021 marks the 46th annual National EMS Week, which recognizes EMS providers for their selfless dedication to saving lives and keeping community members healthy and safe. This year’s theme is “This is EMS: Caring for Our Communities,” which appropriately reflects the time and care our EMS staff and volunteers put into serving the people of Colchester.
The past year has been trying and has shown just how much we value our EMS services. The Colchester Rescue and Technical Rescue squads remained 100% in service throughout the pandemic, answering thousands of calls to serve the community in driving rain and scorching sun, after dark and in treacherous snowstorms.
You stepped up and persevered through operational changes, an influx of information, and the uncertainty of what lay ahead during the pandemic. You sacrificed your time to serve the community, and we thank you for your dedication.
We are incredibly proud of our entire Colchester Rescue and Technical Rescue squads, and we honor you not only this National EMS Week, but every week beyond.
With sincere gratitude for your selfless service to the Town of Colchester,
Scott Crady Aaron Frank Pam Loranger
