KEITH WAGES ANNOUNCES RESIGNATION FROM OFFICE OF EMS IN JULY

Keith Wages, Director of the Georgia Office of EMS and Trauma has announced that he will be resigning in June 1, 2019. This is his communication to his colleagues:

Dear Colleagues,

 

I have notified Dr. O’Neal that I will officially retire from DPH effective June 1, 2019. Words cannot express how much I appreciate him giving me the opportunity to return as State EMS Director in 2010 or how much I appreciate all of your support and hard work. I am also very thankful that I have had the opportunity to serve as President of the National Association of State EMS Officials since September of 2016. It was a tremendous honor to represent Georgia and the South Region in that role.

 

I am so proud of Georgia’s EMS community, and I am grateful that I had the chance to serve with all of you. I wish you all the best.

 

Best regards,

 

Keith
