Broussard, La. (May 25, 2023) – SafeSource Direct, LLC, a leading manufacturer of premium American-made personal protective equipment (PPE), is pleased to announce its donation of $1,500 to the Acadian Ambulance EMS Employee Foundation Fund in honor of National Emergency Medical Services Week. This contribution is part of SafeSource Direct's ongoing commitment to supporting the vital work performed by emergency medical service (EMS) professionals.
EMS Week, observed annually during the third week of May, serves as an opportunity to recognize and appreciate the selfless dedication of EMS providers who tirelessly serve their communities, often under challenging circumstances. SafeSource Direct recognizes the critical role played by these heroes in safeguarding public health and wellbeing.
The fund directly assists EMS professionals and their families during times of unforeseen financial need, providing essential resources and support. By contributing $1,500, SafeSource Direct aims to demonstrate its solidarity with EMS providers and express gratitude for their unwavering commitment to saving lives.
"We are delighted to contribute to the EMS Employee Foundation Fund," said Justin Hollingsworth, CEO of SafeSource Direct. "EMS professionals demonstrate extraordinary courage and compassion as they respond to emergencies and provide life-saving care. Our donation is a small token of appreciation for their invaluable service and an acknowledgment of the sacrifices they make daily."
SafeSource Direct understands the importance of equipping EMS providers with high-quality PPE, ensuring their protection while carrying out their critical duties. Acadian Ambulance, one of the largest ambulance services in the nation, relies on SafeSource Direct as its preferred provider for American-made chemo-rated nitrile exam gloves.
"We are incredibly grateful to SafeSource Direct for their generous donation to our EMS Employee Foundation Fund," expressed Acadian Chairman & CEO Richard Zuschlag. "This contribution will make a significant difference in the lives of EMS professionals and their families, helping to alleviate financial burdens during challenging times. And we’re grateful for the high-quality, American-made PPE they provide our nation’s EMS and other frontline professionals every day.”
SafeSource Direct's donation to the Acadian Ambulance EMS Employee Foundation Fund is a testament to its mission of promoting safety and supporting those on the frontlines of emergency medical services. The company remains dedicated to fostering partnerships within the healthcare community and actively contributing to initiatives that improve the lives of EMS professionals.
This donation follows on the heels of SafeSource Direct’s donation earlier this week of a supply of nitrile gloves to support Louisiana Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS) case workers as part of a fentanyl use and prevention training.
