Kenwood to Be Honored at 2012 National EMS Memorial Service

Kenwood

Michael S. Kenwood, the Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad member who died as a result of injuries sustained in an attempted rescue during Hurricane Irene, is one of four New Jersey EMS providers who will be honored at the 2012 National EMS Memorial Service.

The National EMS Memorial Service will be held Saturday, June 23rd  at the Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Kenwood, Richard Hanlon of Madison Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Bruce Mandell of Maplewood Volunteer First Aid Squad and Matthew Pellettere of River Edge Volunteer Ambulance Service will be honored along with 16 other EMS providers from 12 states.

The National EMS Memorial Service has, since 1992, been honoring America’s EMS providers who have given their lives in the line of duty. The 20 individuals being honored this year join 581 others previously honored by the National EMS Memorial Service.

Each year, at a service held in Colorado Springs, members of the honoree’s families are presented with a medallion, symbolizing eternal memory; a U.S. Flag which has flown over the Nation’s Capital, symbolizing service to the country; and a white rose, symbolizing their undying love.

In addition to the presentations made during the Service, each honoree’s name is engraved on a bronze oak leaf which is added to the “Tree of Life,” the National EMS Memorial.

Additional information on the National EMS Memorial Service is available from its web site at http://nemsms.org.
