Oswego – The Oswego County Emergency Medical Services Advisory Council (EMSAC) will honor emergency medical services providers for outstanding patient care during the fourth annual Awards Banquet Friday, May 13, at the American Foundry in Oswego.
The awards are based on the actions of emergency medical services (EMS) providers in the calendar year 2010, and will be chosen by a subcommittee of EMSAC.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to honor the professionals who serve the community as emergency medical services providers in emergency care,” said EMSAC President Norm Wallis. “Last year, we presented awards to more than 30 of these highly trained and compassionate people.”

The evening begins at 5:30 p.m., with the awards ceremony beginning at 6 p.m. Following dinner, guest speaker Robert Bacon, a 22-year volunteer with the New City Fire Department and a 12-year veteran of the FDNY, as well as an emergency medical technician, will speak about EMS and 9/11.
