For the past five years, the Dynarex EMS Caring Award has recognized an EMS professional or agency that has demonstrated exceptional caring through community service actions and/or programs designed to improve the health and safety of the community they serve. It honors and recognizes the entire EMS profession — and all EMS professionals — who provide quality emergency patient care to their communities every day. The award will be presented as part of the 2022 National EMS Awards of Excellence on Wednesday, October 12. 

Lainey Volk is director of outreach and education, AHA Training Center Coordinator, and EMT with the San Juan Island EMS, in Washington State. In 2021, Ms. Volk and her colleagues installed 25 car seats, provided nine helmets to children, and assisted more than 100 patients. In addition, she awarded more than 461 CPR, Basic Life Support, and First Aid certifications to members of the public, as well as teaching instructor-level courses, wilderness courses, and infectious disease prevention courses. 

“She has trained thousands of health care professionals and community members,” says her nominator T.J. Bishop, assistant chief of operations and training for San Juan Island EMS. “She indirectly has contributed to saving countless lives in the San Juan Islands due to her love of community service and servant leadership.”
