AFSCME President Lee Saunders released the following statement recognizing National Emergency Medical Services Week:

“During National EMS Week, we celebrate the over 1 million EMS workers – including many AFSCME members – who are always there to answer the call. When it comes to saving lives, these everyday heroes never shy away from dangerous, even life-threatening situations.

“They are the epitome of what it means to be an essential worker.

“While we celebrate the first responders in our communities during EMS week, AFSCME will continue to fight for them every single day. We are committed to ensuring that front-line EMS personnel have the funding and resources they need to continue to do their essential work with dignity and pride.”
