The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) within the British Virgin Islands Health Services Authority (BVIHSA) is observing EMS week which started yesterday, 17th May with a church service at the Road Town Methodist Church.
This year’s theme is “EMS Strong”, and activities are scheduled until 23rd May. In addition to the church service, the BVIHSA EMS will make guest appearances on radio and television stations, at schools and hold a health walk to promote emergency medical services.
Speaking with the EMS Supervisor Rodney Braithwaite, he stated that “EMS strong is the willingness to keep learning and growing, as an individual and as part of a profession that’s evolving into a true partner in the health care continuum.”
He added, “We are part of something very special and something bigger than ourselves, and the BVIHSA EMS team is happy to be celebrating EMS week this year with our colleagues around the world.”
Persons requiring information in regard to the scheduled activities for this week can contact Maquita Richards by calling 852-7501.
The British Virgin Islands Health Services Authority is committed to delivering excellent, compassionate, and client-centered health care in the Virgin Islands.
