Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things – 2020 Regional EMS Awards

We want to hear your stories during COVID-19 of ordinary people doing extraordinary things in EMS

Helpers become heroes in the light of emergency services. During the darkness they shine the brightest. During and following COVID-19 stories of ordinary people who have done extraordinary things to help respond, educate, rebuild, and recover from this pandemic around the world will be told. We want to hear your stories of our regional responders that have made a difference, even if they do not realize it.

Focus on and celebrate the good. Share some of the empowering stories you know.

In emergency services, during such challenging times as COVID-19, we rarely focus on and celebrate the good, so we encourage you to find and share some of the empowering stories you know. For every negative story we see on the news, emergency responders can attest that there are thousands of positive and heartwarming stories we never hear about. 

Take a few moments and encourage those that have and continue to make a difference in people’s lives. Awards and praise are not always wished for, and selfless deeds are for others not oneself, but the acknowledgement and encouragement of a job well done is always appreciated. Your nomination may just make the difference in them wondering or knowing that their efforts are making a positive impact.

The Regional EMS Awards are just a few examples of heroic efforts on the part of our regional emergency services.
