Let's Respect Our Real Heroes

We don't need to wait for the next movie from Marvel to see a hero in action. Every day emergency professionals like dispatcher Yolanda Matos-McClintock of Sacramento come to the rescue for thousands of Americans.  Matos-McClintock was recently featured in the Sacramento Business Journal, highlighting the challenges she faces and how being in a union provides strength. Click here to read the article.

Matos-McClintock is the first line of contact for people facing medical emergencies. She offers life-saving guidance and comfort until paramedics and EMTs arrive on the scene. These trained EMS professionals undergo a great deal of stress and know much about sacrifice.
We should respect and honor those who devote their lives to saving others.  We can start by making sure EMS professionals always have the best tools for the job, a livable wage and health insurance, and retirement security for their future.
