Happy EMS Week!!!
The PEC Podcast team is proud to celebrate EMS week with you! In honor of your commitment to your community and dedication to your craft, we celebrate your hard work with a very special story that exemplifies Emergency Medical Services.
The mini-Dunkirk event of Jamaica Queens Hospital patients was an amazing rescue effort composed of Ground EMS, Helicopter EMS, FEMA, and the health care providers of that hospital. When Jamaica Queens Hospital was overwhelmed with COVID patients, EMS answered the call.
Listen to the PEC podcast team interview:
Flight Paramedic Jennifer Noce (with her Great Dane Murph)
Flight Nurse/Medic Lisa Kettunen
Flight Nurse Rebecca Akers
talk about their experiences during the Mini-Dunkirk rescue of Jamaica Queens Hospital.
