On November 20, 2018, members of the Big Spring Fire Department attended the annual Texas Emergency Medical Services Conference in Ft Worth, Texas. At the conference, the Texas Department of Health and Human Services presented the Big Spring Fire Department with the 2018 EMS Provider of the Year Award. Fire Chief Craig Ferguson proudly accepted the award on behalf of the members of the Big Spring Fire Department. The award recipient is nominated by peer agencies and voted on by a state-wide committee.
The purpose of this award is to honor a ground or air organization that demonstrates leadership in emergency medical services in patient care, public access, medical control, disaster preparedness, public education and training.
The Big Spring Fire Department is grateful for this recognition and we will continue to provide the citizens of Big Spring and Howard County with the highest level of professionalism, customer service, and responsiveness through effective and efficient fire suppression and emergency medical services.
