Michael W. Carpenter
Hearne Ambulance Service
December 2, 1994
The following biography appears in the National EMS Memorial Book:
When people who are not in the emergency medical services field need help, they know to dial three simple numbers. They also realize that help will be immediate...That number is 9-1-1. We don't mean to, however, most of us take our E.M.T.s for granted. It's a service you don't appreciate until you need it.
