This past year we were unable to hold our year end Department ceremony and dinner due to COVID. However this past week during our training we took a brief moment to recognize a member of the team that had an exceptionally good year and provided significant relief in open shifts and in teaching. His clinical abilities are exceptional and he showed himself to be flexible when the service needed him. Ian Collins is 2020's Rod Kirchhoff Outstanding Service Award recipient. Thank you Ian.

Sometimes things are personal for us, and we are reminded just how fragile we all are. Today we got to see the power of hope and drive. A while back a true friend of the service, a faithful first responder of Higginsville and an employee of the City's Electric Department was diagnosed with cancer. That was no doubt scary for him and his family. He handled it with grace and humor and a continued spirit to maintain his work responsibilities and his commitments to the fire department. He even graduated at the top of our EMT Academy, all in the middle of his treatments. Today his friends and co-workers celebrated his last Chemotherapy treatment. Thank you Ashley for letting us be a part of a day I know seemed like it took forever to get to. Your strength, drive, and unflinching positive attitude was an inspiration. The entire department sends our love and well wishes to you. Congratulations!

So Emily and Sabrina are two of our EMT Academy students that during a recent lecture on assessment identified stroke like symptoms of a fellow student, taking knowledge they learned that night and applied it in real time. They both were recognized by Director Cushman with the Department's special recognition. Great job! You're well on your way to becoming great providers.

From the office of the Director of EMS:

We all watch the news and see the numbers continue to rise. A quarter of a million have died from the coronavirus this year. A number staggering and breathtaking. It presently is like having a 9-11 type of death rate every single day. Those 250,000 fatalities include yet another one of us that was charged and dedicated to serve the community. Firefighters, EMTs, Paramedic, Nurses, Doctors and other healthcare professionals and public safety officers RISK THEIR LIVES EVERY SINGLE DAY. COVID-19 makes that risk even greater. We are battling a faceless monster lingering in the air. Invisible and deadly. On behalf of the men and women at Higginsville EMS we give heartfelt sympathies and prayers to our brothers and sisters at the Kansas City Fire Department and to Captain Rocha's family who will live life with the pain of losing him way too early.

Is the risks of going against health guidelines worth the lives of those that serve? I am saddened and frustrated today. I don't want the sadness and heartbreak that the Rocha family feels today to be placed on anyone.

I was lucky enough to have recovered, and so too my wife. I know the fear of watching someone you love teeter on the brink of maybe needing to go to the hospital. I know it made me sicker than I have ever experienced. I know many of my peers and friends in EMS are struck ill right now. I worry every time we respond to an emergency that one of our EMTs or Paramedics will suffer in the future, or heaven forbid, lose their life.

Please, I implore you all to re-evaluate what you are doing. Mask up to prevent your germs from infecting others, wash your hands, limit social gatherings. We are capable in this country of making sacrifices for the common good. The people that make a living taking care of those suffering from COVID-19 appreciate it.

Please. I beg of you all, let's do this for each other. Let's do it for a family that is missing their hero tonight.

Matthew Cushman, EMT-P/CP
Director
