On Monday, May 21, 2018, Lima Memorial Health System will be honoring its Emergency Medical Service (EMS) community at the 23rd 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 – Stronger | Together,” and the title says it all. EMS personnel respond 24/7, 365 days a year to help those in need, therefore making them “Stronger | Together.” 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:

  • LMHS Lifetime Achievement
  • LMHS Educator of the Year
  • Special Award
  • Cardiac Run of the Year
  • Stroke Run of the Year
  • Medical Run of the Year
  • Department of the Year
  • Volunteer Department of the Year

The event’s keynote speaker, Mark Rine, Columbus Division of Fire & Founder of SKNLUV. His speech, “Cancer in the Fire & EMS Service,” is a heartfelt message discussing his own battle with stage IV melanoma cancer.
