FIREFIGHTER OF THE YEAR: Firefighter / AEMT Nate Judson
Nobody likes wearing the mask, but I rarely hear Nate complain about this, or anything for that matter. Nate is the poster child for respect given to his fellow employees and leadership. I think I have yet to hear any complaint of any aspect of working with Nate! The few times I have been able to work with Nate he has proven himself respectful of the patients, their families as well as the general public.
EMS PROVIDER OF THE YEAR: Captain /Paramedic Jay Barnum
Jay does well to lead his crew in making sure the station is normally very clean. He has done a ton of work in helping the Medic program come to fruition. "That's not on the A-shift diet." is a phrase I have heard plenty. I know Jay strives to eat well and is an active gym rat. He always has the customers best outcome in mind when treating and supervising those who are treating the customers. came up with the recently instituted report narrative template. Jay understands what a great report consists of and it shows.
Utah COVID-19 Vaccine Information
To help keep Utahns informed about the vaccine, to educate them about its importance, and to keep the public up to date with the latest information about COVID-19 and Utah’s vaccination plan, the state of Utah COVID-19 Response Team is starting an email series.
- Encourage residents to sign up to receive Utah vaccine updates at this link: https://coronavirus.utah.gov/vaccine/#sign-up.
Vaccinations are critical to ending the pandemic, but it will take several months to get enough vaccines to make them broadly available to all Utahns. The vaccine is the pathway to getting back to normal.
The go-to Utah source for COVID-19 vaccine information is this website: https://coronavirus.utah.gov/vaccine.
Helpful, current articles about vaccine effectiveness and safety can be found here: https://coronavirus.utah.gov/blog/#.
