Written by Theresa Rose on June 4, 2015

MT. PLEASANT – This year marked the 42nd time the people of the United States have come together to celebrate the EMS profession – especially the EMTs and paramedics who provide the backbone of the pre-hospital care in this nation. The American College of Emergency Physicians designated the week of May 17-23 as National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week. This year’s theme was: “EMS: Strong.”

“Here at HCHC, this is the third year we have recognized an EMT or Paramedic for their service. This year we gave the award in honor of Danny Eversmeyer for his years of dedication to the field of EMS, and his outstanding years of teaching CPR,” explained Dan Walderbach, EMS Director.

“Danny would always bring positive outcomes for all of the patients in his care and students with his instruction. I feel over his 20 year career he changed the lives of many patients and families who crossed his path, and when he got into this field he wanted to make a difference in his community and save lives. It was this dedication and determination that enhanced HCHC EMS, and Danny Eversmeyer deserves to receive the 2015 HCHC EMS Paramedic of the Year Award.”
