BHB EMTs were presented with a community service award from CableVision on Saturday 17 January. The award was given in front of hundreds of attendees and dignitaries at CableVision´s 10th annual Salute to Service Award banquet at the Fairmont Southampton.
Chief EMT Walter Brangman accepted the award on behalf of BHB with a speech congratulating the other first responder organisations, which were also recipients of awards that night. He explained how EMTs work alongside the Police, Fire & Rescue and the Bermuda Regiment, complementing each other and working in consort for the good of the entire community.
BHB EMTs do not carry out their work for fame or glory, Walter noted, but in an earnest caring for the community. He told attendees how his staff brave dangerous conditions, like driving across the Causeway in high winds during Hurricane Gonzalo, in order to get a patient to hospital for life-saving treatment.
The black-tie event was well attended by local dignitaries, including the Governor, Premier and Health Minister. Eighteen of the 22 fulltime BHB EMTs were on hand.
