Two weeks in May are dedicated to recognizing the service and sacrifice of two unique sets of Clemson University employees: EMS workers and police officers.
Tony Wagner, executive vice president for Finance and Operations, extends his thanks to Clemson Public Safety for their service to the University.
“Thank you to all our colleagues in Clemson Public Safety whose tireless work helps create and foster a safe, secure campus. Your work truly enhances the University’s living and learning environment.”
This year, the week of May 15-21 is recognized as the 47th annual National EMS Week. National EMS Week is a time to honor the entire EMS workforce for their service and sacrifices while raising public awareness about EMS’s role in the community.
At Clemson, EMS is part of the Clemson University Fire Department (CUFD), serving the City of Clemson. Since 1962, Peace Officers have also been commemorated for one week in May, and National Police Week was observed last week.
Associate Vice President for Public Safety Greg Mullen leads the large team that keeps Clemson University’s campus safe.
“We honor those who choose to serve their communities and, in some cases, make the ultimate sacrifice,” Chief Mullen said.
“During these two weeks, we recognize two significant events: National Police Week, dedicated to honoring America’s law enforcement community, and National EMS Week, which celebrates EMS providers and the important work they perform.”
“I am especially grateful for those serving in CUPD and CUFD for their dedication and commitment to keeping Clemson’s campus a safe and enjoyable place for students, staff, faculty and guests,” Chief Mullen said.
