ST. LOUIS , MISSOURI- May 18-24 is the 40th anniversary of National EMS Week! The St. Louis Fire Department has 12 medics units that service the needs of St. Louis citizens.
Last year the Bureau of Emergency Medical Services responded to thousands of calls. Medic 10 stationed at Kennerly and Whittier in the City of St. Louis is the busiest in the state and rank among the busiest in the country.
FOX 2 News /KPLR 11 had a chance to ride along with Medic 10 for a rare "inside look" at just how busy and intensely challenging the life of an Emergency Medical Responder can be.
The type of calls that they responded to were unpredictable!
National EMS Week celebrates and honors the hundreds of thousands of EMS practitioners serving our communities across the nation.
