Barrow County Emergency Services recognized Jeremy Little as EMT of the Year at a recent ceremony.

 

Little started as a volunteer with the Bethlehem Fire Station, decided to make a career of emergency service, and became a full-time employee of Barrow County Emergency Services in December 2002.

“Jeremy does a great job as both a firefighter and an emergency medical technician and proudly serves the department and the citizens of Barrow County,” said Chief John Skinner. “He is well-deserving of this award and I am proud of the work he does for us.”

Little was recognized at the Region 10 Banquet as Barrow County’s EMT of the Year on April 27.

The annual banquet is used to recognize medical first responders from around northeast Georgia for their knowledge and skills used to provide the highest quality of pre-hospital health care.

Little has maintained his compassion for his patients, their families and his crew through his years of service, said Lieutenant Blair Darst, his supervisor.

“Jeremy Little is a great example of the men and women who work for Barrow County Emergency Services,” Skinner said. “The citizens of Barrow County can have confidence in the skills and experience of the department with people like Jeremy serving them.”
