Greenwich Emergency Medical Service, Inc. (GEMS) held its annual fundraising dinner, GEMStoberfest, on February 21st at the Round Hill Club. More than 100 guests donned lederhosenand dirdnls to enjoy bier, brauts and pretzels in support of GEMS’s life-saving work. Proceeds from the evening will be used to purchase state-of-the-art medical equipment for its fleet of seven ambulances. The festive and fun evening was co-chaired by Jim Higgins, Angie Lucas and Jenny Baldock.
The mission of GEMS is to provide the highest level of pre-hospital and emergency medical care to reduce the risk of death and disability due to trauma and sudden illness. GEMS began operations in 1986 as an independent, non-profit organization. It is not a department or arm of Town government, but rather an independent provider of emergency medical services pursuant to a contract with the Town. The organization pays for all of its capital needs – its seven ambulances and all of the sophisticated medical equipment – through fundraising efforts.
