Columbus, Ohio – The National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians is proud to announce the awarding of its first-ever 50 Years of National Registry certificate to Bill Wood, a New Hampshire paramedic/firefighter. The award also kicks off an article series highlighting Nationally Registered personnel across the nation.   

The National Registry's emerging article series will highlight Bill Wood and several other Nationally Registered personnel across the nation, from departments large and small, including the military.

"We see you," says Bill Seifarth, Executive Director and CEO of the National Registry. "Every day you are making important decisions that impact the lives of people and their families who have dialed 9-1-1 in a time of need. It is important that we celebrate what our Nationally Registered EMRs, EMTs, AEMTs and Paramedics do."

The article series run monthly during the certification window ending March 31 and then every other month during the summer.
