We were greatly honored when one of our own - Washington EMT and Chief Emeritus Steve Wright - was awarded the 2014 Lifetime Achievement Award by the Western Connecticut Health Network.
Steve has been involved in emergency services for over 40 years. During those years, he has served in EMS, firefighting and wilderness rescue. He is trained in Swift Water Rescue and is a member of the Regional Rope Rescue Team. During ski season, he works on the Ski Patrol at Mohawk Mountain.
Washington First Selectman Mark Lyon commented "Throughout his life of volunteer service, Steve has served as a model of professionalism and selfless dedication to Washington and regional Emergency Medical Services."
The announcement of Steve's choice as the recipient of this year's Lifetime Achievement Award was greeted with a standing ovation by EMS personnel from around the region.
