EMS Week NEMSA

This we spotlight our community heroes for the lifesaving and tireless work they do. EMS personnel are not given as much recognition as they should receive since their jobs encompass so much more than just responding to an emergency. These individuals bravely step into chaotic situations, providing emergency care on some of our worst days. They wear many hats as teachers, hand-holders, safeguards, and lifesavers.
To all of our EMS personnel, no matter what field you are in, this week is for you. Thank you for being you and for all that you do! We appreciate you!

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. According to John Hopkins Medicine, more than a quarter of Americans ages 18 and older suffer from a diagnosable mental health disorder in a given year. Additionally, the pandemic has increased the number of individuals with mental health disorders.

Here are some tips to help improve your mental health.
✔️ Treat yourself with kindness and respect.
✔️ Make time for hobbies that bring you joy and peace.
✔️ Set realistic goals that you can achieve in a given period of time.
✔️ Surround yourself with positive people.
✔️ Always ask for help when needed.

Fun fact: Pet owners are less likely to suffer from depression than those without pets.

Mental health is important. Be kind to your mind, and if you are struggling, remember you are not alone and make sure to reach out to someone.

Congratulations to SMS Standout Tyre Armstrong. While Tyre was on his first hitch as an offshore medic, he had his first issue that required escalation to medical control. Tyre was professional, comprehensive, and on-point with the deliverance of his medical exam, medical knowledge, and treatment plan. Typically, SMS assigns these often rigorous offshore job projects to a more experienced medic; however, Tyre performed and exhibited to the levels of our most seasoned remote medics. Thank you for the hard work, Tyre!
