More than one in every six people in the Tidewater Emergency Medical Services (EMS) region will summon an emergency ambulance this year. The ambulance response is provided from a local level, triggered by a call to 9-1-1. The professional volunteer and career emergency medical personnel are certified, and their ambulances are licensed, by the Virginia Department of Health's Office of Emergency Medical Services. At a regional level, the Tidewater EMS Council was incorporated in 1974 as a non-profit private organization for the purpose of developing and implementing an efficient and effective regional EMS delivery system. The council integrates and coordinates resources to ensure rapid response and expert patient care, as well as coordination between more than 60 local EMS agencies and 15 hospitals.alt

What are you doing for Earth Day? Did you know: Earth Day was founded in 1970 as a day of education about environmental issues, and Earth Day 2021 will occur on Thursday, April 22—the holiday's 51st anniversary. The holiday is now a global celebration that’s sometimes extended into Earth Week, a full seven days of events focused on green living. The brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson and inspired by the protests of the 1960s, Earth Day began as a “national teach-in on the environment” and was held on April 22 to maximize the number of students that could be reached on university campuses. By raising public awareness of pollution, Nelson hoped to bring environmental causes into the national spotlight. Learn more: https://buff.ly/2GnFB2Q

There are more than 5.3 million children and adults in the United States who are living with a permanent brain injury-related disability.
That’s one in every 60 people. If you know someone who is living with brain injury – or if you have one yourself – you know that brain injury is not an event or an outcome. It’s the start of a misunderstood, misdiagnosed, underfunded neurological disease. Learn more: https://buff.ly/2DrRB05 #MoreThanMyBrainInjury

Traditionally, we celebrate the first day of spring on March 21, but astronomers and calendar manufacturers alike now say that the spring season starts on March 20th, in all time zones in North America.

SONS OF VALOR, PARENTS OF FAITH by James J. O’Donnell BUY NOW FROM AMAZON BARNES & NOBLE LOCAL BOOKSELLER GET WEEKLY BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS: Email Address Subscribe KIRKUS REVIEW A collection of remembrances of New York City firefighters and police officers who died on 9/11 as told by their parents. Besides the physical devastation wrought by the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center towers in 2001, there was a reverberating emotional toll, especially on the families that lost loved ones. Debut author O’Donnell gathers 10 of those stories here—nine detailing the lives of firefighters and one a police detective. Each chapter provides a concise biography of the fallen, including the details leading up to the fall of the towers, and then explores the grieving aftermath of their families chiefly from the perspective of their parents. Two of the civil servants profiled were brothers—John Vigiano was a firefighter and his younger brother, Joseph, a police detective. Joseph led a life of valor. He was wounded by gunfire three times in a career dotted with commendations. The biographical vignettes cover much more than the professional outlines of their subjects; they reach back into their childhoods and furnish a full account of the kinds of men they were. Firefighter Christopher Pickford took theater classes and wrote plays and spent countless hours writing and playing music. Firefighter Capt. Tommy Haskell was a successful high school athlete and a star on the New York City Fire Department’s football team. Parents of the deceased mourn in strikingly diverse ways. Barbara Hetzel, the mother of firefighter Thomas J. Hetzel, joined a group specifically for grieving parents run by the fire department. Maureen Santora, mother of firefighter Christopher Santora, wrote two children’s books, one about a mother’s unconditional love and another about the horror of the 9/11 attacks. O’Donnell’s research is both journalistically rigorous and brimming with empathy. He’s a New York City firefighter who also responded to the attacks on the twin towers. His prose is always accessible and often affecting, especially when it depicts the profound vocational calling to which all firefighters respond: “One dominant and shared attribute among all the families is the ability to confront loss with grace and dignity—even though, at times, they were encroached upon by the media and others.” A stirring tribute to the supreme sacrifice of American heroes. 47 people reached
