Navicent Health recognizing first responders
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – It’s emergency medical services, or EMS, week and Navicent Health is recognizing first responders.
Several paramedics and EMS team members fired up the grill this morning for a luncheon.
Jason Brady, the EMS Director for Navicent Health, says it’s important to honor his staff every chance he gets because of the important role of EMS in the community.
“We do it selflessly. It’s a difficult job. Often times we don’t get a meal. Often we’re rushed into situations that most people are rushing out of so it’s an opportunity for us to thank our employees for what they do because we know it’s a sacrifice,” Brady said.
Navicent Health paramedics serve four counties covering nearly 1200 square miles.
Brady estimates his staff responds to about 40,000 calls for service each year.
