May 19-25, 2019 Proclaimed Emergency Medical Services Week

The Elko County Board of Commissioners proclaimed the week of May 19-25, 2019 at Emergency Medical Services Week at the May 15th meeting. 


The emergency medical services system consists of first responders, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, emergency medical dispatchers, firefighters, police officers, educators, administrators, pre-hospital nurses, emergency nurses, emergency physicians, trained members of the public, and other out of hospital medical care providers, all those we rely on in the time of an emergency.

The Elko County Board of Commissioners encourage the community to observe this week with appropriate programs, ceremonies and activities.  This year's theme is: EMS Strong: Beyond the Call.
