(RICHMOND, Va.) – The 2018 Governor’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Award winners were announced at the 39thAnnual Governor’s EMS Awards Ceremony in Norfolk, Virginia. These awards, given in Governor Ralph Northam’s name, recognize outstanding EMS providers and organizations from across the Commonwealth for their demonstrated level of excellence and dedication to the EMS system.

Presented in conjunction with the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) Office of Emergency Medical Services’ Annual EMS Symposium, the awards ceremony caps off the weeklong training event. The largest EMS training event in the Commonwealth and one of the largest in the nation, this year’s symposium welcomed more than 1,600 participants. The symposium offers each participant the opportunity to earn up to 26 hours of continuing education credits for recertification as an EMS provider, via more than 360 class sessions.

“I am always so honored and astounded by the hard work and dedication that Virginia’s EMS providers demonstrate, and it’s during this special event that we can recognize all of their efforts and contributions to our EMS System,” said Gary Brown, director, Virginia Office of EMS. “It is because of every one of them that we can bring the best prehospital emergency care to all people in Virginia. I am so proud of their continued commitment and congratulate all nominees and winners of the 2018 Governor’s EMS Awards.”

The VDH Deputy Commissioner for Public Health and Preparedness Dr. Parham Jaberi, who also attended the Governor’s EMS Awards ceremony said, “We are thankful to all of our EMS professionals across the state who respond selflessly to the call of duty each and every day.
