EMS week, May 17-23, has been designated to recognize those who work in the emergency medical services profession and this year's theme is "A Proud Partner in Your Community." But to the EMS personnel who work at Norwalk Hospital, this observance is not about them, it's about reaching out to the community they serve.

Throughout the month of May, which is also National Trauma Awareness Month, Norwalk Hospital's Paramedics and EMTs will be visiting local Norwalk Schools with the ambulance, providing tours of the ambulance and information on EMS and "911" awareness, safety and injury prevention. Lynn Ryder-Baumblatt, paramedic, is leading this effort.

According to Lynn, as a paramedic, she sees so many injuries that could have been prevented with seat belts, helmets, and other precautions. "We want to create awareness that could help prevent injuries in children as well as in adults. As an extension of our visit, we will offer an EMS and injury prevention poster contest and the winning posters will be displayed in the Norwalk Hospital emergency waiting area," she added.

Below is the schedule of school visits:
