#GMVEMSC: EMS Week Proclamation

Dear EMS Colleagues,


EMS week is quickly approaching, May 17 - 23, 2020. This year the national theme is "Ready Today. Preparing for Tomorrow" which seems fitting for our Greater Miami Valley EMS Council Awards.  Attached is the proclamation for your local governing bodies to sign, if they choose to do so.


We are STILL seeking nominations for two awards to be handed out at an EMS Council Meeting. Remember that anyone who is a member of an agency that belongs to EMS can become a voting member on those and other committees.  If you are interested, reach out to the chair of the committee.  Currently we have  received TWO nominations, we know everyone is working very hard on COVID-19 response and we greatly appreciate it! However, we need your nominations, COVID related or not. Please help us out and take a few minutes and think of life before COVID, or even COVID response and send me your nominations.


The first award is the Norma Dittrick Extra Measure of Service Award. This award is centered around significant contributions to EMS, contribution to the community and self-improvement.  You can find the criteria here: https://www.gmvemsc.org/uploads/nomination-dittrick.pdf


The second award is the Tom Long Lifetime Achievement Award, and it's designed to recognize outstanding individuals who have made a life-long contribution to the high quality of emergency medical services within the greater Miami Valley. The nomination form can be found here:  https://www.gmvemsc.org/uploads/nomination-long.pdf


Please share these award nominations with your agencies because we all are doing amazing work! Send all nominations to mpitstick@ccchd.com.


Please do not fill the nomination form out on the website and submit, we aren’t sure where those end up. Fill out the form and scan it in or simply email Michelle with your nominations.


If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out!
