Boston Makes Us Proud

Boston Makes Us Proud

 ‘We should all salute the crews and management and medical directors of Boston EMS. After years with the efforts and actions of EMS crews going unnoticed or unrecognized by the media, the location and focus of camera at the Boston Marathon educated the world about the benefits of high quality, rapid moving and efficient EMS’ writes A.J. Heightman in May 2013 JEMS.

The State of MA has been using the SMART Incident Management System since 2007 and Boston EMS, have a SMART Triage Pac in their frontline vehicles and, use them whenever the number of casualties exceeds medical personnel. Training and preparing on a routine basis for an incident of this nature.

A.J Heightman goes on to say that Boston EMS ‘…were decisive, polished and professional.  They were well-trained, disciplined and effective, and they made us all proud. Thank you, Boston EMS.’

TSG Associates would like to add our praise to their professionalism and dedication.
