MIEMSS Region I Holds EMS Hall of Fame Induction

August 5th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Recently four individuals were inducted into the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems (MIEMSS) Region I (Allegany and Garrett Counties) Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Hall of Fame.  The individuals honored for 2019 were James Dawson, from the George's Creek Ambulance Service; Allen Ruby, from the Flintstone Volunteer Fire Company; Dr. Richard Perry, Garrett County Jurisdictional Medical Director; and Ralph Lichty, from the Southern Garrett County Rescue Squad.

Honorees and guests were treated to a celebration at the Garrett College Career and Technology Training Center in Accident, Maryland where the Advanced Life Support (ALS) Program educates many current EMS clinicians and those preparing to become Paramedics. Inductees received a plaque and a commemorative MIEMSS challenge coin.

Nominations for the Region I Hall of Fame are accepted all year long by the MIEMSS Region I EMS Advisory Council. Nominees are then voted on by the council and up to 10 nominees who have demonstrated outstanding contributions to the Region I EMS System are annually inducted into the Region I EMS Hall of Fame.  For more information on the Region I EMS Hall of Fame, contact the MIEMSS Region I Office at 16 South Broadway in Frostburg or phone 301-895-5934.
