Emily is a reliable and hardworking member of the team. In the last 3 months alone, Emily stepped up to cover an immediate need at the Grand Traverse, and covered sick leave for a coworker in need. Emily also was integral at Sonic Bloom, as she worked as both a line EMT and on the ambulance several nights in a row. Emily also electively enrolled in Paramedic school, showing a drive and passion to upgrade her skill set and education. Emily has shown on a daily basis the company values, and acts with high integrity in all things. Emily is well deserving as employee of the year.
The Disaster Response Team member of the year is awarded to an individual that has shown that no matter the assignment and no matter the task they are ready to accept the challenge with enthusiasm and a smile. Every time an email was sent for availability Jackson was always first to respond. He was available for the entire summer and never took his name off the list for any reason at all. From fire camp on, Jackson has exemplified what it means to be a team player and has shown he is more than ready and capable of representing our Disaster response team and EMSU in a professional and courteous manner. Thank you for your dedication and willingness to do whatever it takes to further the team and our goals of becoming the premier provider of any and all things EMS.
From her leadership AND caring about her role at Sonic- we saw her at the utmost highs and lows from that event as she worked tirelessly to make it a success and take care of not only her patients but also her team! She stepped into that supervisory role without knowing anyone and she killed it with compassion and professionalism. It was from that event I knew we needed her at the company and I wanted to do whatever we could to keep her with us. Throughout the whole summer she stepped up to work events all over Colorado, she had such a positive attitude and such a great work ethic. She is thriving personally and professionally and I am so happy that I can say anyone would be better off for working with her.
Gary has become an integral part of the transport team since he started in June 2022. Gary was initially a great resource for crew resource management at Sonic Bloom where the team faced several clinical and operational challenges. From there, Gary started full-time with the transport team and we quickly realised how knowledgeable and approachable Gary is when it comes to teaching mentorship. Many of our employees view Gary as a trusted mentor, and friend. Gary also brings a great attitude to work, enjoys the complexity of long distance IFTs and helps to bring a sense of community in the workplace.
With a great sense of humor and attitude, Gary is well deserving as transport employee of the year.
