STAMFORD, Conn. -- Stamford Emergency Medical Services donated a rescue-themed Christmas tree to the Cassena Care of Stamford's fourth annual Festival of Trees.

The three-foot tree is decorated in ornaments that remind all who see it of the work EMS providers do to protect their communities.

“Thank you so much for participating for such a good cause,” said Minette Zambo, Regional Director of Admissions for Cassena Care. “The festival of trees is an annual event where pre-lit and decorated trees will be auctioned. The proceeds will go to The Over 60 Club in Stamford.”

“Stamford EMS is thrilled to join this special tradition again this year,” said Patricia Squires, Stamford EMS Chief and C.E.O. “As a private nonprofit organization we understand the value of community support. It’s our pleasure to donate to the club.”

Stamford Emergency Medical Services Inc. is Connecticut’s only CAAS accredited EMS agency, responding to over 14,000 calls annually as a private, nonprofit organization. Since it was organized in 1992 to provide prehospital care and ambulance services, Stamford Emergency Medical Services has remained clearly focused in its mission to provide high quality, compassionate emergency care and education to the communities it serves.
