BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — May 17-23, 2020 is the 46th annual National EMS Week.

EMTs at AMR are thankful for the support they have seen.

"A lot more random people on the street are thanking us," said Hailey Battaglia of AMR.

AMR EMTs have had to make some adjustments with COVID-19 including wearing masks constantly.

They are asking the public to wear masks whenever they call for an ambulance as a precaution for the people and the EMTs.

"It not only saves your life but it shows you have the respect for those around you," Battaglia said.
