Guam - In recognition of the valuable services of all the emergency medical service providers on Guam, Governor Eddie Calvo proclaimed the week of May 19-25 as Emergency Medical Services Week.

He acknowledged the men and women who are in the business of saving lives including those present such as the EMS Commission, Public Health, the Guam Fire Department along with Andersen Fire and Navy Fire.

"Ladies and gentleman," the governor said, "you are life savers, you are guardian angels and with that we are proclaiming Emergency Medical Services Week, I wish it could be a whole year actually because of the work you're doing."
