Longwood Fire Co. salutes EMS personnel

EAST MARLBOROUGH — The 44th annual National EMS week begins May 20 and Longwood Fire Company is recognizing its EMS personnel.

“EMS professionals provide such a valuable service to the community every week of the year,” said Longwood Chief A. J. McCarthy. “Their life-saving skills are invaluable.”

EMS Week brings together local communities and medical personnel to honor the dedication of those who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services of medicine’s front line.
