Alva EMS receives award
August 7, 2022
Alva Ambulance Service was awarded with (Oklahoma Emergency Medical Technician Association) OEMTA Basic Service of the Year award for 2022 at the end of June. One of their own, Rebecca Davidson, was also awarded Advanced Provider of the Year. These awards are from nominations for different emergency responding agencies and first responders throughout the state of Oklahoma.
In the last year, the ambulance service has greatly improved as a service. Many educational and training hours have been completed along with having a great success in field treatments and overall better patient outcomes. Ambulance members say they enjoy volunteering with the Alva Wesleyan Food Bank and Senior Citizen Center and helping to bring additional community blood drives to the area; they plan to continue to do so regularly.
