Roosevelt Medical Center emergency medical technician Shellie Pacovsky was recently recognized by the board of directors of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians for achieving 20 consecutive years as a nationally registered EMT.
This distinction is an honor held by few EMTs across the nation.
To maintain her status as a nationally registered EMT, Pacovsky completed, on a biennial basis, the most comprehensive recertification program for EMTs in America. She not only completed courses to refresh her fundamental knowledge and skills but also attended a minimum of two hours per month of additional continuing education courses to advance her knowledge on new lifesaving skills.
Pacovsky was first nationally registered as an EMT in 1994 and has been serving the Bainville community for the 20 years since then.
