Photo of the Week: Community invests in EMS safety

The Wyoming Area Kiwanis Club held an “Invest in a Vest” fundraiser to supply Greater Pittston Regional Ambulance members with body armor


Calling all EMS photographers! EMS1 wants to see pictures of you in action or training. Submit a photo — it could be selected as our Photo of the Week! Be sure to include your name, department information and some background on the photo.

This week’s Photo of the Week comes from Greater Pittston (Wyo.) Regional Ambulance (GPRA), showing ballistic vests donated by the Wyoming Area Kiwanis Club.

The vests were funded through an “Invest in a Vest” fundraiser, which GPRA said was “a smashing success.”

The agency said it was provided with enough vests to equip its entire fleet. The body armor will be worn by EMS providers responding to active shooter incidents.
