In a ceremony Thursday night at the Unicoi State Park Lodge Conference Center, Hall County Fire Services Paramedic Elizabeth Taylor was named EMT of the Year by the Region 2 EMS Director’s Association.

Taylor was recognized for her actions during a motor vehicle accident in December 2016.

A press statement from Hall County Fire Services said Taylor not only provided stellar medical care to the patient but also took it upon herself to follow up with the patient and family throughout the patient’s recovery from her injuries.

"Hall County Fire Services is blessed to have some of the most dedicated personnel in the state providing care for our citizens and visitors," said Hall County Fire Chief Jeff Hood following the award presentation. "Paramedic Taylor’s actions during and following this incident exemplify our core values of commitment, integrity, honor and courage. We are very proud of her recognition tonight."

The EMT of the Year is presented to a currently licensed EMT-B, EMT-I, AEMT, CT or Paramedic who exemplifies outstanding professionalism in EMS. For award consideration, outstanding professionalism is defined as going far and above the call of duty whether in the direct delivery of patient care or in programs offered to the community that promote health and wellness.
