Local emergency personnel awarded
In 1990, the Arrowhead Regional EMS System’s Recognition Award Program was developed to honor regional emergency medical services (EMS) providers for their hard work and dedication in providing emergency medical services to communities in this region. Awards were presented during the Arrowhead EMS Conference & Expo Awards Lunch on Saturday, January 19.
Dylan Bridges (left) and Doug Rotta (right) of Carlton were awarded the Emergency Associate Award. This award goes to individuals whose commitment to EMS is above and beyond their job description, someone who consistently provides quality EMS while either on the job, training, or volunteering.
Susan Bengtson (center) of Moose Lake was awarded the Pre-Hospital Care Provider Award. This award goes to an individual who has shown exemplary actions in the field on a day-to-day basis. A one-time act of heroism is certainly commendable and worth acknowledging, however, this category is designated for the EMS pre-hospital care provider who is currently on an active roster and shows his/her commitment to EMS each and every day.
