The American Heart Association in January presented Saratoga County EMS Council with a Community Training Center award in recognition of outstanding performance, leadership, and professionalism in advancing the mission of the American Heart Association (AHA) and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC). Council Chairperson Kathy Barton accepted the award with Frank Smith, who leads Council Instructors in number of students and classes taught. Frank, in case you don’t remember, was recognized as EMS Instructor of the year by REMO last September, largely due to his efforts in Saratoga County. Frank’s community training record is closely followed by fellow instructors Jack Peroha and Andy Olmsted. Kathy Barton is the administrator of the first aid and CPR training programs run by the Council. Congratulations to all of our Instructors for a job well done!
