Berkey recognized with NDEMSA Media Award
The award is presented by the North Dakota EMS Association.
Each year the North Dakota EMS Association recognizes those individuals who have made significant contributions to the provision, development and improvement to local, regional and state prehospital care. The 2023 NDEMSA Media Award was recently presented to Andrew Berkey.
Berkey is the operations manager of Jamestown Area Ambulance – Ringdahl EMS. He brings awareness to the community using creative media techniques about important issues facing EMS. Berkey also spreads the word for upcoming EMT classes to the Jamestown community and area ambulance services, often doing so with social media posts, news articles and posters.
The Media Award was established to honor media organizations or employees who significantly contribute to the image of EMS or to public education about emergency medicine in their communities or across the state. Any newspaper, magazine, television station, radio station or other media source, or an employee thereof who promotes EMS-related activity in the state in a positive manner qualifies for this award.
