[ARCHIVED] Ohio Division of EMS Star of Life Awards

Ohio Division of EMS, EMFTS Board and the Ohio ACEP
Host 16th Annual Star of Life Awards

Premier event recognizes and honors Ohio’s excellent prehospital providers

COLUMBUS- the Ohio Department of Public Safety’s Division of Emergency Medical Services (EMS), the State Board of Emergency Medical, Fire, and Transportation Services (EMFTS) and the Ohio Chapter of the American College of Emergency Physicians (Ohio ACEP) will join forces and host the 16th Annual EMS Star of Life Awards ceremony in observance of National Emergency Medical Services Week (May 15-21).

“An estimated 240 million calls are made to 9-1-1 in the U.S. each year, with approximately 1 million emergency runs for EMS in the state each year,” said Ohio EMS Executive Director Mel House. “EMS teams are ready to provide critical, lifesaving care to those in need 24 hours a day, seven days a week; with many of our first responders being volunteers.” National Emergency Medical Services Week brings together local communities and medical personnel to publicize safety and honor the dedication of those who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services of medicine's "front line." “Ohio’s emergency physicians recognize the expertise of our pre-hospital partners and our joint mission to save lives in an emergency. We are grateful for Ohio’s EMS professionals and their call to a career of service,” said Dr. Michael McCrea, President of Ohio ACEP.

The ceremony will be held Wednesday, May 18, 1 p.m. in the ODOT Auditorium at 1980 W. Broad Street, Columbus, Ohio.

EMS Star of Life Awards recipients are:
EMS Stars
Akron Fire Department
Damascus Fire Department
North Olmsted Fire Department
Plymouth Fire Department
Ravenna City Fire Department
Troy Fire Department
Washington Township Fire Department

The Troy Fire Department is being recognized for their lifesaving efforts when crews were dispatched to a pediatric patient who was severely burned on March 22, 2015, during a recreational fire. It was through their efforts that the child survived and is on the path of recovery. Along with the Troy Fire Department, the Miami County Sheriff’s Department, Miami County Communication’s Center and CareFlight will be recognized for their efforts in the response and treatment of the young child.

Questions are referred to the Troy Fire Department, 335-5678.
