This year’s Annual EMS Appreciation Breakfast which took place yesterday, was a great success! More than 75 attendees enjoyed complimentary breakfast in recognition of their service to our community.
Pictured above is keynote speaker, Captain Lynne Blankenbeker, RN, US Navy. Captain Blankenbeker was an active duty Air Force nurse from 1986-91. She was also deployed to Oman and Kuwait during Desert Shield and Desert Storm. After switching branches to the Navy, she treated those wounded in the Iraq War while stationed at the Bethesda Naval Medical Center in Maryland. More recently she served as a combat nurse stationed in Afghanistan.
Thank you to all who attended and thank you first responders!
