On Monday, May 22, 2017, Lima Memorial Health System will be honoring its Emergency Medical Service (EMS) community at the 22nd Annual Lima Memorial EMS Banquet. The event will take place at the Veteran’s Memorial Civic & Convention Center in Lima.
The theme of this year’s banquet is “EMS: Strong – Always in Service,” and the title says it all. EMS personnel respond 24/7, 365 days a year to help those in need, therefore making them “Always in Service.” The EMS community and their families sacrifice greatly to provide our area with exceptional medical attention and pre-hospital care.
Multiple awards will be given throughout the night to recognize the countless successes of the Lima area EMS personnel. These awards include:
The event’s keynote speaker, Randolph Mantooth, is widely recognized for his role as firefighter/paramedic Johnny Gage in NBC’s hit show EMERGENCY! He will deliver Remembering Why, a humorous and heartfelt message expressing appreciation for the profession he helped introduce on Saturday nights on NBC.
