Had the parlor game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon instead been designed with Lisa Camp in mind, everyone in Friendswood and La Porte would have been directly or indirectly touched by the longtime emergency medical services leader.
The Friendswood native is the EMS chief for the volunteer fire departments in both Friendswood and La Porte.
Because of Camp’s introduction of innovative treatments for patient care, the 100 Club recently honored her with its Lifetime Achievement Award. The 32,000-member organization, which serves 32 counties in the region, provides financial support for the dependents of law enforcement officers and firefighters killed or seriously injured in the line of duty. The honor has Camp reflecting on a career filled with challenges and rewards. She helped bring programs in Friendswood such as use of induced hypothermia in heart-attack cases.
