The third week of May is set aside to recognize some heroes among us. It’s National Emergency Medical Services Week. Sunday marked day one of the forty-ninth Annual EMS Week, a week dedicated to the EMS profession and everything it entails. Eyewitness News Reporter Emily Allegrucci spoke with some of our local first responders and discussed what this week means to them. For almost 50 years, the third week in May has been recognized for those who dedicate their lives to saving ours. “So it’s very important that now the public has a week to recognize their ems providers, their municipalities, and their localities,” said Edward Szafran, Chief of Operations for the Greater Pittston Regional Ambulance. EMS Week is nationwide, giving the public a chance to say thank you to their local first responders.
