West Virginia OEMS is very proud to announce that Vicki Hildreth was chosen as one of the ten recipients of the Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMS-C) Recognition Awards at Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Program Meeting in Bethesda, MD!

The purpose of the EMSC Recognition Awards program is to call some well-deserved attention to individuals
within EMSC who, in the last year, went above and beyond to provide advice, inspiration, and leadership in grant-related
matters.

The West Virginia EMS for Children Advisory Committee states that ""Vicki is the most caring and energetic person when it comes to the children of West Virginia."

Among her list of accomplishments are

  • Helped to provide equipment such as Pedimates pediatric immobilization systems and EZIOs interosseous IV systems to local squads
  • Worked with the WV's Annual EMS Conference Committee to provide a pediatric track
  • Revitalized the WV "Always Read for Kids" (Ark) Program
  • Formed networks throughout the state

Penny Byrnside Director of West Virginia's Trauma categorization and designation program said "Vicki's passion is contagious and wonderful to watch."
