This week is EMS Week, a week set aside since 1974 to spotlight and thank all of the men and women who work, study and train hard every day to be ready to save lives.

Being an EMT can be a thankless job. Often times, EMTs are the first to be on the scene of an accident or other medical emergency, and we wanted to thank all of our listeners who are behind the scenes and at the forefront of emergency care in Western New York.

Thanks again to all of you that volunteer and get paid as a career for what you do in our community!
