EMS Week/Police Week May 15-21 Celebrates “The Connection”


Sulphur Springs Police Chief Jay Sanders and Hopkins County Paramedic Tabitha Vaught appeared on the KSST Good Morning Show to promote “The Connection”, a 9-1-1 fun and education event planned for Saturday May 21 from 10am until 2pm on Celebration Plaza. The connection that links the citizens of the community to necessary services is 9-1-1, and that includes SSPD, Hopkins County Sheriff’s Department, Fire Departments, EMS, DPS, Game Wardens and other agencies.

“The Connection” event will provide plenty of opportunities to learn how important 9-1-1 is when a crises arises, and how quickly local service providers are equipped to respond. There will be food, bounce houses, demonstrations and information booths. You can get up close to fire and emergency vehicles and even see an EMS helicopter as it lands near the plaza.

The event is free to the public and planned as a celebration of EMS Week and Police Week during National Healthcare Month.

See the interview with Chief Sanders and Paramedic Vaught on Channel 18 News Tuesday. Channel 18 News is found on Suddenlink Cable Channel 18 at 6:30 p.m. each evening. The video news is also posted on ksstradio.com each afternoon prior to 5 p.m.
