During the recent Emergency Medical Services Week, the Maine EMS board presented NorthStar employee Carol Pillsbury, center, with the Maine EMS Lifetime Achievement Award. The award is conferred for extensive involvement with EMS in Maine for at least 10 years — 30 years for Pillsbury. Other criteria are consistently performing above and beyond expectations in system development, patient care, service involvement and community involvement. Pillsbury was nominated by fellow colleague and paramedic Cassandra Purington. NorthStar EMS is the regional ambulance service operated by Franklin Memorial Hospital. Presenting the award were Maine EMS director Shaun St. Germain, left, and EMS board Chairman Jeff Rowe, right.
