This year’s Stars from the Great Lakes State are Tracy Allen and Theresa Hartman of American Medical Response, Bridget Dickert of LifeCare Ambulance Service, Donald Brown III of Jackson Community Ambulance/Emergent Health Partners, and John Eilich III of Life EMS Ambulance.

Congressman Upton was selected for the Legislative Recognition Award for his long-standing support of ambulance services and ensuring proper reimbursement under the Medicare ambulance fee schedule.
