Congratulations To Two Local Paramedics Program Graduates, May 19-25, 2024 Marks The 50th Anniversary of National EMS Week

The City of Presque Isle and the Presque Isle Fire Department would like to say congratulations to two recent graduates. Congratulations to Mickel Morrow and Tori Drost who graduated from the Paramedic Program at Northern Maine Community College. They will be great additions to our emergency response team. And we'd like to extend a huge 'Thank You' to all our emergency responders who dedicate their lives & careers to saving the lives of others in need.

May 19-25, 2024 marks the 50th Anniversary of National EMS Week. This year's theme, “Honoring Our Past. Forging Our Future,” reminds us to acknowledge the foundational work of those who came before us, while also striving to build and lead the EMS system we envision for our future.

EMS Week is the time we honor the entire EMS profession and its importance in protecting the safety and health of our citizens. Our country’s EMS professionals serve in a broad range of roles, from providing highly skilled care in an ambulance, to serving as educators, to practicing community paramedicine, to conducting research. These individuals are dedicated to improving emergency medical services on numerous levels.
