          Brandy Rice, a firefighter-paramedic with the Arkansas City Fire-EMS Department (ACFD), and part-time ER tech with SCKMC has been named the 2015 Paramedic of the Year by the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT).

     Nominees for the Paramedic of the Year award are scored on how they provide superior patient care; are an effective advocate for patients and their families; work with peers to foster a positive work environment; display professionalism in interacting with patients, their families and other medical professionals; and demonstrate a commitment to continuing professional education.

     The award will be presented at NAEMT’s general membership meeting and awards presentation on Sept. 16 in Las Vegas, Nev., and on Sept. 17 at EMS World Expo’s opening ceremony.

     Rice teaches several EMS and community CPR classes, has implemented a Vial of Life program, and is involved in many other organizations that benefit the safety and health of community members.

     She was nominated by ACFD EMS Director Jeri Smith, who said, “Brandy is a true ‘caretaker’ of the people of Arkansas City, she goes above and beyond the call of duty.”

     “She often stays after an EMS call to help people with special needs,” Smith added. “When a wheelchair-bound woman returned home after an emergency hospital run with Brandy, she found her dishes clean, her grass mowed, new cordless phones installed, and a longer string attached to the ceiling fan she had been unable to reach before.”
