Cherokee County Fire & Emergency Services Receives Region 1 EMS of the Year Award
Northwest Georgia Emergency Medical Services Advisory Council (NGEMSAC) recently presented the Cherokee County Fire & Emergency Services (CCFES) with the Northwest Georgia–Region 1 EMS Service of the Year Award during their annual awards banquet held at the Clarence Brown Convention Center in Cartersville, Georgia.
The NGEMSAC provides assistance and recommendations to the Georgia Office of EMS in regards to the development and continued emergency medical services in 16 counties in northwest Georgia.
According to the CCFES Division Chief, Danny West, “This award is presented to the EMS Agency whose nomination scores highest on 11 criteria, including standards, protocols, violations, innovation and community service. The nominations are given to evaluators, who are out of state, to make the selection of the winner.”
“With the leadership and guidance of our Medical Director Dr. Jill Mabley, Division Chief Danny West and EMS Program Director Randy Pierson, Cherokee County continues to be a leader in the state of Georgia when it comes to emergency medical care,” stated Cherokee County Fire Chief, Tim Prather.
The first time the award was presented to the CCFES was in 2008, which is the same year they received the Georgia Emergency Medical Service of the Year Award. The CCFES also received the Region 1 award in 2014.
