Fishers Fire Dept. firefighter and paramedic Adam Lee was recognized March 2 as one of 13 recipients of the 2015 St. Vincent Hospital Angel Medic Award.
The award is given to a paramedic or EMT in each of the fire departments in Central Indiana who demonstrates proficiency in patient care and displays an attitude of professionalism. The purpose of the award is to recognize contributions made to patient care that align with the St. Vincent core values of wisdom, reverence, service of the poor, dedication, creativity and integrity.
Nominations are made by peers and evaluated by a committee based on volunteerism and community service, core value commitment, leadership qualities, professionalism and providing appropriate medical care.
Lee was presented the award for his continued work in developing and enhancing the tactical paramedic program between the Fishers Fire Dept. and Fishers Police Dept. Paramedics are embedded into a team of specially trained police officers to provide immediate care to the police officers in the event of an injury and to provide critical medical information to responding units. The paramedics also receive specialized training and work hand in hand with police officers during tactical situations.
