On Tuesday, May 17, 2011 at 10:00 AM, the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems (MIEMSS) will present its annual Star of Life Awards to honor EMS personnel, citizens, and EMS programs statewide. The awards will be presented in the Miller Senate Office Building, President’s Conference Room, East I, 11 Baden Street, Annapolis, MD.
Our very own Teresa Ann Crisman, Community Developer, coordinator of the Community Outreach for the Fire/EMS Department has been selected to receive one of the top awards to be presented by Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley.
Career and volunteer members of the Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Department have long recognized Teresa’s skills and unique manner in delivering life safety and fire prevention education and apparently the State of Maryland has recognized her skills as well. Crisman will receive the MIEMSS Star of Life for “Maryland EMS for Children Award.” The award states;
“For her tireless efforts in reducing injuries in children through life-safety education in Prince George’s County and across the state.
She has led major activities that included car seat checks, child passenger safety training, fire prevention school programs, and Safe Kids events. She serves as Chair of the Risk Watch Task Force.”
Additionally, Teresa Ann Crisman is slated to take on the role as President of the Maryland State Fireman’s Association Ladies Auxiliary this June at the annual convention in Ocean City, Maryland.
