Emergency care isn’t just dispensed at our facilities, sometimes it starts in the ambulance, on the way to our emergency center. And while nurses and physicians are the main providers of medical care in the emergency room, there’s a completely separate team of men and women who treat patients in the ambulance.

EMS, or Emergency Medical Services, teams identify wounds and conditions, stabilize and if necessary, treat patients on the way to emergency centers or before emergency services arrive. They may be EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians), or paramedics and may work in variety of positions, like as a firefighter. It’s often their expert training that saves patients in critical, life-threatening situations.
Victoria ER wanted to honor the brave men and women who, like the emergency team at our facility, save lives in our community. Our Director of Marketing, Sheila Kilgore, dropped off treats at Victoria Fire Station 4 to show our appreciation.
“Victoria Fire Department is glad to have Victoria ER recognize our efforts to make our community safer during EMS week 2017,” said Joel Moncado, EMT-LT. “As a department, we come to work knowing that we take great satisfaction in providing the best care for our community. We appreciate the recognition because it reminds us all that we have a duty to act.”
“We’re incredibly grateful to our EMS teams in Victoria, who play a crucial part in protecting our community,” said Sheila. “We hope that the goodies we delivered will express our appreciation!”
