05/15/14 198 W, 1 I - + 3 - 3 Wake County EMS Code: Celebrate 2014 - Monday, May 19

The Wake County EMS System will host this year's "code celebration" ceremony on Monday, May 19, at 7:00 p.m. at Meymandi Concert Hall in Raleigh. That's in the venue once known as Memorial Auditorium. This annual event celebrates survivors of cardiac arrest and the successes of the many partnerships across the county EMS system. That includes the telecommunicators, the first responding law enforcement officers or firefighters, and the EMT and paramedics of Apex EMS, Cary EMS, Eastern Wake EMS, and Wake County EMS.

Where are the action photos of these "code saves", you ask? Cough, cough, those are exceptionally difficult to capture. Most occur indoors and inside private residences, facilities, or businesses. For those that happen out of doors and in a space that's conductive to discrete close photographers of the responders, it's an exceptionally rare "right place, right time" occasion. Which is the reason that the lion's share of "EMS in action" photos in Wake County are vehicle accidents or medical calls in public spaces or medical monitoring and rehab at fire scenes. But we digress... Click to enlarge this flier:

Actually, Meymandi is adjacent to Memorial Auditorium. It’s to the west of the “main” auditorium, but shares a courtyard with it & the Fletcher Opera House as a part of the larger “Duke Energy Center for Performing Arts”
