EMS Appreciation Week

Local News

BROWNSVILLE, Texas — Today wraps up EMS Appreciation Week. It’s a time set to recognize lifesaving first responders. Valley Baptist Medical Center in Brownsville took time this week to say thank you to members of the Brownsville Fire Department. EMS personnel  and a stroke victim were also recognized.

Raul Hernandez, Brownsville Fire Department, Being a paramedic is something that I’ve wanted to do ever since I was a kid, so I have been fortunate enough to help the community for the past 19 years. It is always nice to receive recognition but that is never our intent.​​​​​​​

If you’re an EMS first responder, send us your picture in uniform. We’ll be highlighting your service on our 10:00 p.m. newscast.
