LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Emergency medical services personnel from Delta Township and Lansing were honored with Sparrow EMS Appreciation Awards for their consistent high-quality care to the community.
The Delta Township Fire Department was singled out for an agency award, while Firefighter-Paramedic Greg Smith of the Lansing Fire Department received individual honors. Both were cited for their dedication.
Dr. John Dery says emergency responders need to know how valuable their efforts are when saving lives. "They typically put themselves in harms way for our own safety everyday without thinking of themselves. I think it's important that we as the region's trauma center, recognize their efforts and celebrate them as well too."
The awards presented in a ceremony at Sparrow are in recognition of National EMS Week.
