Have you ever had to dial 911?

When we need help the most, Emergency Medical Specialists are just a phone call away. This week, American Medical Response in Cheyenne is celebrating Laramie County EMS Week May 17 through 23.

Cheyenne's American Medical Response is hosting a week long celebration to honor the EMT's and Paramedics of Cheyenne and Laramie County from May 17th through the 23rd. This year's activities wrap up with a barbecue on Saturday, May 23, for all first responders of Laramie County.

Throughout the week, several businesses around the community are sponsoring meals for crews working in the ambulances and Emergency Rooms in Laramie County. American Medical Response, 600 E. Carlson St. Suite 101, asks that community members show their support for the Paramedic's and Emergency Medical Specialist's efforts during this special week.

This year's theme is 'EMS Strong.' The men and women who work as Paramedics are some of the strongest individuals; physically, mentally and emotionally during critical moments when others count on them to be and are a vital part of our community.

Let's help American Medical Response of Cheyenne show our appreciation for these hard working and valuable members of the Cheyenne and Laramie County communities.
