May 19-May 25 is National EMS Week, an optimal time to bring EMS providers and the community together through awareness and outreach events. To help celebrate National EMS Week, Governor Tom Wolf encourages all citizens to recognize the value and the accomplishments of EMS providers and to thank them for their invaluable service to our communities. Lancaster EMS has a number of events planned throughout Lancaster City/County during this week!
Join us for SAVE-A-LIFE DAY on Tuesday, May 21. From 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Lancaster EMS will be in Lancaster Downtown Penn Square. At 12 p.m., Mayor Danene Sorace will read the National EMS Week proclamation. We will offer demos of hands-only CPR on training manikins, Stop the Bleed, and Narcan Administration. We will have materials on site for opioid addiction and safe disposal of medication. Penn Medicine LGH will offer educational information on stroke awareness. We will hand out apples and everyone can meet “Crunch” from Lighten-Up Lancaster for a selfie. And, you won’t want to miss meeting CYLO from Lancaster Barnstormers for pictures.
