EMS crews honored for their dedication

Whenever there is an emergency, the first people there to arrive on the scene are typically paramedics. To honor their service, University Medical Center wanted to say thank you to crews for their service.

As part of national EMS week, crews and their families gathered to celebrate at LeRoy Elmore Park Saturday.

"Just to recognize the first responders and the people who put their life on the line for taking care of people in our region and our community it's a nice thing," said Chris Teague, UMC EMS director.

120 brave men and women make up the UMC EMS department.
