This week is National EMS Week. It’s a week designated by President Gerald Ford to celebrate EMS practitioners and the work they do in communities around the country. In Chatham County, Chatham Emergency Services has been on the front line of responding to emergencies since the 1960’s. The CEO of Chatham Emergency Services says this National EMS Week has been a little different than years past. “Interest is a little more heightened in the community this year. We’ve certainly seen an outpouring of love and appreciation like we’ve never seen before. The Meals for Medical, and then other people just showing up and bringing food to the’s been really heartening," said Chuck Kearns. Kearns added around 30 restaurants have stopped by to offer Chatham Emergency Services staff a bite to eat since the pandemic began.
