Our staff is exhausted, our medical supplies depleted, and all of our rigs are covered in mud.

In the words of our event manager, “It’s not very often in EMS that we get to do something where people truly appreciate what we do. So we really need to take these moments to heart.”
.
Thank you to our SJ fam— we couldn’t do it without you! Fun fact: our Fleet Manager, James, was one of the competitors this weekend! (Luckily not one of our patients!)
.
Now we need to turn and burn and wash all the rigs before REMS Selection later this week!
