GARY | Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson assembled a host of Gary EMS workers and Gary Fire Department staff at city Hall to read a proclamation recognizing EMS Week in the City of Gary on Wednesday.
“Over the past two years, the EMS Department has experienced some challenges based on some difficult decisions that had to made,” Freeman-Wilson said. “Never during the time of their transition did their focus shift from serving the citizens of Gary. I applaud them for their commitment to this city and I wouldn’t want to be in any other place in the time of an emergency.”
Gary Fire Chief Teresa Everett and Assistant Chief Mark Everette also addressed the group and commended them for their efforts.
National EMS Week is observed nationally May 19 through 25. The theme for this year is “EMS: One Mission, One Team.”
