VIDEO: This week, Pueblo is celebrating Emergency Medical Services (EMS) week. The National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) said it's a week to recognize the contributions of paramedics, EMTs, 911 dispatchers, and other first responders who demonstrate unwavering courage. This week marks the 50th anniversary of National EMS Week, according to NAEMT. On Tuesday, Pueblo Community College (PCC) hosted a lunch to bring all first responders in Pueblo together and to show their appreciation for their service. Local first responders like the fire department, paramedics, and EMTs are tasked with arguably one of the hardest jobs, saving lives. They're all almost constantly put in very stressful situations. The PCC came to the EMS building in Pueblo to cook a homemade meal for all of the first responders.
