Friendswood’s Volunteer EMS has been recognized as achieving the Gold Level of Readiness for the Texas EMS for Children State Partnership Voluntary EMS Pediatric Readiness program. Friendswood is one of only two programs in Texas to receive the highest qualification this year, according to Friendswood EMS Chief Lisa Camp, BA LP, CPM. “We have always tried to serve residents of all ages with the highest level of excellence. This award means that the goal of providing Friendswood’s children with the best emergency medical care possible is being reached. That is not only demonstrated in how we respond to an emergency call, but also through ongoing efforts to educate children, their parents, and be involved in the community,” Camp said. The Friendswood EMS was founded in 1972 and has grown to 45 members; a mix of volunteers and paid staff.
“Two of the greatest assets we have in Friendswood are our volunteers and a desire to achieve excellence,” said Friendswood Mayor Kevin Holland. “This Gold Level recognition of our EMS team shows that they have successfully combined both of those assets as they care for the youngest residents of Friendswood. I am proud of their accomplishments.”More: Home Space News
