Welcome to May! This month holds two very important weeks that honor fallen Emergency Services Personnel. Police Week, from the 10th to the 16th, honoring fallen law enforcement officers through events nationwide. EMS Week, the 17th to the 23rd, celebrates the 2015 campaign EMS Strong. The At the Ready magazine family extends our thanks and support to the men and women who serve in these critical emergency services professions.
Our May issue asks the question, “What’s in Your Bay”, but we don’t answer with pictures of trucks, cruisers, and ambulances. Rather we talk about the “stuff” behind the vehicles, such as fleet management, liability for emergency driving, and the 1033 program where many agencies receive specialized vehicles through the Law Enforcement Support Office (LESO). Enjoy the issue, and please feel free to contact us anytime!
Finally, the At the Ready First Responder Expo is coming to Region IV in September. Join us in beautiful Columbus, Georgia from 9/11-9/13 for demonstrations, training, and other opportunities. Our goal is for all attendees to leave inspired with tools, training and ideas that travel back to the local communities where all responders make a difference. Visit the At the Ready Expo tab on our website, and watch for attendee registration to open in June. The Expo is FREE for attendees. Please plan to join us!
With warmest regards,
