The American Ambulance Association recently honored Chris Winn, with Life EMS, as one of the top 100 EMS professionals who make a difference in the lives of patients and communities in which they serve at their national convention.
With an annual theme of “Honoring our own National Treasures,” the AAA paid tribute to these top performers—named “Stars of Life”—from across the United States and also recognized other partners who support and enhance the industry.
Winn, selected as the Life EMS Star of Life, is a Basic EMT currently studying to be a paramedic and sees this as a lifelong career, which he started early. During his senior year of high school, Winn joined the Pond Creek Volunteer Fire Department and EMS, serving his community for five years. He joined the Life EMS team in 2013. He continues his volunteer work during his time off from Life EMS.
“I love what I do at Life EMS. My career is about serving others and really is an extension of my faith, allowing me to help and care for people in my community,” said Winn.
“Life EMS and our capable team is dedicated to providing the optimum in emergency medical care to the citizens in Enid and Garfield County,” said Jimmy Johnson, President of Life EMS. “Chris exemplifies everything we expect from our staff—he is team player with a big heart and is always wiling to do anything that is asked of him. He is exceptional and deserving of this national award.”
