Every day hundreds of thousands of calls are answered by Emergency Medical Services around the country. The dedication, compassion and professionalism displayed by those in EMS is not by chance, nor does it come easily.
This is a great opportunity for those who collect Liztech pins to both add to their collection and also support this worthy nonprofit association of Monroe County. A new EMS pin has been designed that is soon to be available from both your local ambulance corps, at the store and its web site.
The pin benefits the Dr. Peter Favini Paramedic Scholarship Foundation and is representative of all emergency medical service workers. Dr. Favini was honored by the Monroe County Ambulance Association for his dedication and for his volunteer work as medical director.
The pin took a year to design and create and represents the services that make up the Monroe County Ambulance Association which founded the scholarship fund.
The pin symbolically represents the helping hands of EMS by outstretched hands which hold in them the caring heart in a striking blue color which proudly displays the Star of Life. It also has hand-picked beads which represent the colors of each corps. A red bead centered inside the Star of Life represents the emergency lights as ambulances race to answer 911 calls.
The two different blue beads represent the services of Central Pocono Ambulance and Pocono Mountain Regional EMS. The two different green beads represent both Bushkill Emergency Corps and Suburban EMS. Representing West End Ambulance Corps and the recently merged Pocono Mountain Regional EMS and Barrett Ambulance Corps are the red beads. These organizations have worked together for decades providing service to our community. The interesting part about the pins, of course, is when there are no more beads of the same origin, color or design, the pin will be retired.
The corps has recognized the need to help those who otherwise might not have the opportunity to further both their emergency services education and their desire to provide higher levels of service. Proceeds from the sales of the pin will support the scholarship fund. The foundation will distribute monies to eligible recipients entering a paramedic program to assist them with their tuition expenses.
The pins sell for $50 each, with half of the proceeds going directly to the foundation. Purchase the pins from the Liztech store in East Stroudsburg at the end of July or purchase one from any of the ambulance services listed. Order forms are also available on the website www.bushkillemergencycorps.com.
So here is a perfect opportunity to add a little pizzaz to your collection and help fund a future paramedic's scholarship.
