Please join me in congratulating FAS EMTs Alex(andra) Gallucci and Bryan Michaelson, along with Paramedics Nastassia (Yeh) Swanson, Joe Schepis, and Josh Nix on receiving the Metropolitan Boston Emergency Medical Services, Inc., aka Region IV, award for Outstanding Team Response. This award is presented to any team of responders who demonstrate a professional highly team-oriented approach to patient care during an extremely severe medical emergency.
The FAS team was nominated by Deputy Chris Grazioso for its work in managing a suicidal patient on I93 near South Bay. Despite the risks to their own personal safety, the FAS team lead by EMT Gallucci, used quick thinking and swift action which resulted in the saving of a life.
Their actions will be celebrated at the Fourteenth Annual Region IV EMS Awards Ceremony which will be held on Thursday, November 6, 2014 at the American Legion Post 440 in Newton.
Congratulations, Alex, Bryan, Josh, Joe and Nastassia.
