Thanks, Volunteers

It is that special time of year to send out a big thank you to the women and men of the East Hampton Village Ambulance Association for providing lifesaving care to our community (village and town) 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

They are teachers, artists, mechanics, store clerks, landscapers, accountants, Realtors, nurses, office workers — but most importantly they are our neighbors. Ranging in age on life’s journey from college students to retirees, it is their mission to respond day or night, rain or shine, hot or cold, pandemic or not. Their response dramatically improves survival and recovery for anyone experiencing sudden illness or injury.

Therefore, please join me in recognizing and thanking our local EMS members during National Emergency Medical Services Week (May 15 to 21). The theme for 2022 is “EMS: Rising to the Challenge.” Let me reassure everyone that our volunteers not only meet the challenges, they embrace them.

God bless each and every one of our outstanding EMS volunteers.
