Brown County - EMT of the Year

​Each year, the VFW Post 3278 & Auxiliary host a Citizen’s Public Safety awards banquet and accepts nominations from law enforcement, fire, EMS, and other services. This awards ceremony recognizes individuals that stand out among their peers and represent their specific field well. Lifeguard-Brown County had the opportunity to participate in this year’s awards, along with Brownwood Fire Department, Brownwood Police Department, Brown County Sheriff’s Office, Heart of Texas EMS, Heart of Texas Veteran’s Clinic, and TDCJ Havins Unit. Teacher and volunteer of the year were also recognized at the event.

Lifeguard nominated EMT-Paul Tidwell, who has been in the EMS industry for eight years and was a peace office for three years. In the short amount of time since its startup, Paul has made a positive impact on his peers at Lifeguard, as well as the leadership team. Through his interactions with co-workers, customers, and patients, Paul is noted as being very professional, courteous, and respectful of others. He continues to be very dependable, reliable, generous, and willing to help others in any way he can.

Congratulations, Paul, on your award! Thank you for being a great asset to the Lifeguard team.
