LIFE FORCE crew members named in the awards include: Derek Ball, James Parker, Ben Hayne. Cody Wilson, Stephanie DeBerry, Anthony Nash, and Sam Greenwood.

EMS Week honors the first responders, EMS workers and Emergency Medicine personnel in the nation. In 1974, President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week to celebrate EMS practitioners and the work they do in the nation's communities. These men and women are responsible for delivering top-notch care to patients in their time of need. Erlanger is fortunate to work with these professionals, both on their team and in partnerships around the region, said officials. This year's theme is "EMS Strong: Stronger Together".
