Press Release Jul 06, 2012

Rochester, NY, July 11, 2012 — EMS eSchedule, a leader in online crew scheduling and workforce management software for EMS, fire and air medical agencies, announced today that two people have been awarded with prizes as part of its EMS Week promotion.

Cynthia Session of Ogden-Hanover Volunteer EMS in North Carolina was chosen as the recipient of a scholarship. She’s been awarded a 3-day pass to the 2012 EMS World Expo courtesy of EMS World Magazine, along with a $200 check toward travel expenses. Cynthia was selected over hundreds of other applicants in part due to her many years of service, having been involved with EMS since 1992. Ms. Session is a paramedic and assistant chief with the agency. She will be attending the EMS World Expo in New Orleans, LA, October 29-November 2, to attend training classes so that she may bring back the knowledge and pass it along to her corps.

Additionally, Jeremy Wafer, a paramedic with DMCare Express in Detroit, was randomly selected to win a $100 gift card from EMS eSchedule.

Both recipients won their prizes as part of EMS eSchedule’s EMS Week giveaways. The company partnered with EMS World for the promotion.
