NARFE Members Learn How Best To Help When EMTs Are Called

Virginia (Ginny) Taylor (left), Program Chair, Williamsburg Chapter of the National Association of Retired and Active Federal Employees (NARFE) thanks Kat Lindsay for speaking at NARFE's February 12 Luncheon. Lindsay, an advanced emergency medical technician (EMT) with James City County Fire and Rescue, provided numerous tips to help EMTs should they be called to their homes and for preventing accidents in the home. Originally from Jan Jose, California, Lindsay moved to Toano, Virginia, in 1994. She works in surgical services at Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center, and has been a volunteer with the James City Volunteer Rescue Squad for eight years.
