Emergency Medical Services week is being celebrated May 16-22 with the nationwide theme of "Anytime, Anywhere, We'll Be There." Wyoming Department of Health Director Dr. Brent Sherard says that we should all be grateful of those that work and volunteer their time to keep us safe.

Sherard noted that nearly 85 percent of EMS providers in Wyoming are volunteers and that in 2008, Wyoming EMS interventions helped save an estimated 2,819 lives and helped avert 3,212 permanent disabilities.
