"We are truly thankful and blessed for these skilled volunteers for their selfless service. They leave work with no pay to go search for your loved one, whether it be a missing person, drowning, sinking boat, fall/off road accident (where we have to hike in and carry the patient out), etc.," the announcement said.

In 1974, President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week to celebrate EMS practitioners.
