Emergency Medical Services Week has local significance

Volunteers pretended to be wounded passengers in a vehicle that was under a downed power line. The “accident” in Midland tested the training and readiness of the volunteer ambulance and fire crews.

In an area of South Dakota known for its farming/ranching industry and known for being a long way from most anywhere, people depend on the training of first-responders.

May 15-21 has been declared National Emergency Medical Services Week to bring the field of ambulance crews and other first responders to the public’s attention. The Philip Ambulance Crew has been recognized as one of the best. Midland just completed a month’s long class to train EMT-basics.
