In recognition of national EMS Week, May 17-23, Verne W. Critz Elementary School faculty sponsored a delicious catered meal for South Country Ambulance Company. School nurse Karen Edmondson said that the gesture brought a sense of community to the school faculty and staff and showed appreciation for the hard-working frontline workers.

“They [South Country Ambulance Company] have been very good to us through the years and go above and beyond for Verne W. Critz, as well as the entire South Country community,” Ms. Edmondson said.

EMS Week was authorized in 1974 by U.S. President Gerald Ford to celebrate EMS practitioners and their essential contributions to society. The National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians partners with the American College of Emergency Physicians to lead this national event.

With the money collected, the faculty and staff bought and delivered three pizzas, garlic knots, 30 heat-and-eat Italian meals, two trays of heroes and salads, a sheet cake and a cookie platter. Physical education teacher William Champlin helped with the collection and aides Kelly Salvatore and Julie Quartuccio and her husband picked up and delivered the food.

This kind act was a complete success and members of the South Country Ambulance Company were extremely appreciative.
