“We are very proud and honored to receive these awards,” First Aid Crew president Ashley Cook said. “The three things I believe that helped us to achieve these awards are dedication, pride and professionalism. WFAC has a tradition of dedicated EMS professionals proudly working hard to achieve the best. Our volunteers have a commitment with this organization-with emphasis on commitment – fully knowing and recognizing that our communities rely upon our diligence of service to fulfill our mission statement ‘to provide the best quality pre-hospital emergency care and rescue services to the citizens of Waynesboro and surrounding areas.'”
