was announced during the organization’s recent annual awards ceremony in Atlantic City.
Setnicky has served an EMT in Princeton for more than 30 years and as operations director since 2007. He also volunteers as the chief of the Clinton First Aid and Rescue Squad in Hunterdon County.
The state recognized Setnicky for his dedication to patient care, commitment to training colleagues, and help improving the state’s emergency medical services system.
