Are YOU Ready For A Disaster

Providers, as you know, the hurricane season is well upon us.  ODEMSA joins you in your concern for the recent victims in TX, and those that are in current hurricane paths.  We know providers, from our region and throughout Virginia, are participating in hurricane missions at multiple disaster locations.  We want to take a moment to remind you to make sure you, and your family, are prepared for any type of disaster.  You CAN NOT help others when you, yourself, are in need.  Your mind CAN NOT focus on your missions when it's worried about family, pets and your home.  We plead you GET A KIT, MAKE A PLAN and STAY INFORMED.   Visit www.ReadyVirginia.gov for more information and well prepared checklists.  ODEMSA staff wish well-being to all our providers and their families.  Please take a moment, to take recommended precautions, to assure your safety.

Regional Award Winners- 2017

 

       ODEMSA is Pleased to Annouce our 2017 Regional Award Winners 

    

ODEMSA congratulates all of our award winners. The winners we recognize every year do not ask us to honor them. They don’t do it for the accolades.  We know they prefer to go quietly about their business of saving lives every single day.  But it is important for us to recognize these amazing and selfless individuals because without their service and sacrifice, our citizens would have no one to rely on in their time of great need.

 

Each of them are now automatically nominated for the 2017 Governor’s EMS Award, and they will each be recognized at the 38th Annual Virginia EMS Symposium during the Awards Banquet.
