“We are incredibly grateful for our EMS and first responder partners, who are often the first encounter people in our community will have during a medical emergency,” said Piedmont Walton Hospital CEO Blake Watts. “Their jobs are often emotionally and physically challenging, but they are dedicated to helping people in their time of need, and we want to thank them for all they do.” 

Piedmont Walton works closely with first responders from Walton and surrounding counties to provide care to those experiencing a medical emergency. While the hospital celebrates its first responder partners during National EMS Week, Piedmont Walton has also launched the First Friday Heroes program to recognize and thank first responders who exceed the call of duty. If you would like to nominate a Walton County first responder who has gone above and beyond in their line of work, please email your nomination to firstfridayherowalton@piedmont.org.
