EMS, Health Dept, recognized with proclamations
05/15/2019

(KAIR)--Special proclamations came during this week’s meeting of the Atchison County Commission, with emergency services and the local health department both recognized.

The Atchison County Health Department is celebrating 100-years in operation, and that was noted during the proclamation made Tuesday by Atchison County Commission Chair Jack Bower, who closed the proclamation by saying, “Now, therefore, the Atchison County Commission by virtue of the authority vested in the commission by the laws of Atchison County and the State of Kansas do proclaim May 17, 2019 as Atchison County Public Health Department 100th Anniversary Day."

The Atchison County Health Department began operating in 1919.

A ceremony to mark the 100th year anniversary is planned for Friday.

It will be held at the health department, located at 616 Commercial Street, in Atchison.

Family fun activities, hotdogs, and cake will be served.

The public is invited.

Also proclaimed Tuesday was Emergency Medical Services Week which will run from May 19 through May 25.

The proclamation calls Emergency Medical Services “a vital public service,” adding that “the members of emergency medical teams are ready to provide lifesaving care to those in need 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
