Whitmer recognizes ‘EMS Heroes’ for saving lives during pandemic

Posted by: jgomori Posted date: May 16, 2022


Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is recognizing Michigan’s EMS Heroes for their lifesaving work on the front lines of the pandemic by proclaiming May 15-21 as EMS Recognition Week.

“Michigan’s EMS Heroes step up to serve our communities every day,” Whitmer said. “During EMS Recognition Week, let’s thank our local heroes for always being there when we need it most and helping our neighbors, family, and friends. We must also recommit ourselves to having their backs through our actions, which is why I proposed awarding $50 million in hero pay to first responders throughout the state in my budget for next year. I will work with anyone to get these bonuses enacted and deliver for our first responders in both my words and actions.”
