Medic One ambulance service receives recognition

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT-TV) - The Medic One ambulance team in Pocahontas received some special visitors this morning.

The Jonesboro Air Evac Life Team landed at Medic One to recognize them for their excellence in emergency medical services.

The Medic One Team was presented with a plaque in honor of their performance during a trauma call last September.

Regional Manager of Medic One, Jimmy Shields, says they're honored, "We do this day in and day out and we run into bad calls on a fairly regular basis and it just makes us feel good that we're being recognized for something we done."

The paramedics say their biggest reward is when they're able to help save a life.

Medic One operates in five counties within Northeast Arkansas and Southeast Missouri.
