Chicopee Gardens Honors Local EMS With Barbecue Lunch

Chicopee Gardens for Nursing and Rehabilitation celebrated local first responders with a barbecue on Tuesday in conjunction with National EMS Week.

Over thirty firefighters, policemen, emergency medical technicians and volunteers gathered around at the facility’s campus to enjoy a barbecue lunch. Chicopee Gardens staff also prepared “grab-n-go” lunches for those first-responders on the run.

“We at Chicopee Gardens are grateful for our first responders who serve our local communities each day, said Avi Rosenbloom, “This barbecue is our way of saying thank you and will go a long way in building lasting relationships with our bravest and finest.”

This is the 44th annual EMS Week. President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week in 1974 to recognize the important work emergency medical services personnel do in communities around the country.
