CLEARWATER - Pinellas County Commissioners named the 2014 Emergency Medical Services Professionals of the Year during the May 6 meeting.   

The awards are given each year in May in honor of EMS Week, locally commemorating the EMS professionals working for the county’s emergency medical services system.

This year’s Paramedic of the Year is SWAT Paramedic Chris Eisenhardt.

“We want to be the best,” Eisenhardt said. “We want to make sure that our head is focused and we are on point at all times.” 

Sunstar EMT Jay Horne was named Emergency Medical Technician of the Year.

“We are highly dedicated, highly professional and highly trained,” Horne said. “That is hands down the most important part of the system.”

Pinellas County 911 Telecommunicator Terri Griffin was named Emergency Medical Dispatcher of the Year. Griffin and her teammates were instrumental in locating a stroke patient who was unable to provide paramedics his location.

“We don’t do it for the honor or the glory,” Griffin said. “We just do it because we want to help people.” 

The award recipients each received a plaque and a cash award from the Pinellas Federal Credit Union.

A special video profiling the award winners is available at www.youtube.com/pcctv1

EMS Week is celebrated nationally each May by the American College of Emergency Physicians. The theme of this year’s celebration is “Dedicated for Life.”
