Cathy Stevenson honored for 30 years of service

Cathy Stevenson, an ER Tech with Winston Medical Center, was recently recognized by the Board of Directors of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for achieving 30 consecutive years as a Nationally Registered EMT. This distinction is an honor held by few EMT’s.
To maintain her status as a Nationally Registered EMT, Stevenson completed, on a biennial basis, the most comprehensive recertification program for Emergency Medical Technicians in American. She not only completed courses to refresh her fundamental knowledge and skills but also attended a minimum of two hours per month on additional continuing education courses to advance her knowledge on new lifesaving skills. By maintaining her Nationally Registered status and completing regular continuing education courses, Stevenson, is among the few elite EMT’s with the most training in pre-hospital emergency medical care in the nation. Stevenson was Nationally Registered as an EMT-Basic in 1981 and has been serving the Winston County Community since 1981. The National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians serves as the national EMS certification organization by providing a valid, uniform process to assess the knowledge and skills required for competent practice by EMS professionals throughout their careers and by maintaining a registry of certification status.
