Married Mont. EMT duo transports patients home for holidays
Kory and Camille Landwehr aren’t normally allowed to work shifts together, but were permitted to do so on Christmas

EAGLE CLIFF, Mont. — In true holiday spirit, an EMT couple spent their Christmas transporting patients home to spend time with their families.
As part of AMR’s “Home for the Holidays” program, which provides patients a free ride home on Christmas, EMTs Kory and Camille Landwehr spent the day helping patients get home.
The duo transported two patients Sunday; the agency offers the free service to six patients a year, reported the Billings Gazette.
Kory Landwehr said he first began working for the program six years ago when he first became an EMT. He said although he had four patients to transport, he spent most of the day moving them back and forth.
“People don’t know about it [Home for the Holidays],” Landwehr said. “Those assisted living nursing home places are so busy, sometimes they aren’t able to get the word out to patients.”
The couple isn’t normally allowed to work shifts together, but were permitted to do so on Christmas.
“Getting to help people with the person you love makes it even better,” Camille Landwehr said.
