SEELEY LAKE – The Seeley Lake Fire Department opened their doors for the Open House in celebration of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week. Attendees enjoyed a complimentary taco lunch catered by Casa Caro, toured the station and the equipment, and received free blood pressure checks.

Partnership Health Center had an informational table that offered informational materials on heart attacks and strokes. Jon Kimble won their raffle basket, a summer fun cooler filled with goodies donated by the Seeley-Swan Medical Center Clinic (SSMC) staff. All proceeds were donated to the Seeley Lake Fire Foundation.

"Michelle [Baker] and I really appreciated the opportunity to share SSMC information with the community and show our support for the awesome team of the EMS crew," said Georgiann McCoy, Seeley-Swan Medical Center Clinic Manager. "Our partnership with them helps us better serve our patients and our community."
