On Thursday, May 24, 2018, MedStar hosted it’s 9th annual “EMS Night at the Mountain” event at Wachusett Mountain in Princeton MA. This is an event dedicated to celebrating EMS workers and their families for their hard work. The event is focused around fun and entertainment, so it’s a great evening for everyone involved!
This year’s event was a huge success, with over 40 lifesaver awards and 6 field delivery awards given out to recipients. Each year we seek to increase the size of the event to honor our emergency service workers for the hard work and dedication they show in the field. These awards cannot truly express our gratitude to them for everything they do, but it’s a small way in which we strive to give back to them.
Every year our Director of Support Services, Joe D’Arcangelo, strives to make the event bigger and feature more ways to appreciate our employees. Our goal each year is to not only outdo ourselves on awards given but to provide an evening of fun and relaxation for our fellow EMS workers and their families.
The event features raffle prizes and door prizes, this year we gave out over 60 different raffle prizes! We also place a heavy emphasis on fun for the whole family, so we had sky rides as well as other activities geared toward children, to make sure everyone had a great time. Since it can be tough for emergency services workers to find time for such family activities due to their job duties, we wanted to give them a night of fun and free food.
Alongside the entertainment were other vendors. This year we had about a dozen vendors on site, all from various companies. Having these vendors at the event allows them to demonstrate new products and educate people on existing ones. It also, allows for the building of a better network with other companies to improve our services. We are hoping to further grow that list of vendors next year!
Overall the 9th annual EMS Night at the Mountain was a huge success, and we’re looking forward to making it bigger and better every year following! If you have any interest in joining us next year, either as a vendor or attendee, feel free to get in contact and we can discuss more! Additionally, if you have any questions about EMS workers, working as an EMS worker, or other inquiries about contacting us for services, visit our contact page and we will get in touch with you as soon as we can.
