Highway Safety Office honors Sussex EMS The emergency medical service agencies of Rehoboth Beach, Millsboro and the Sussex County EMS were among 17 police and medical service departments rec- ognized by the Office of Highway Safety for their continued com- mitment in promoting traffic safe- ty issues. The awards were given at the Delaware State Troopers Associa- tion near Smyrna on Jan. 9, mark- ing the second annual Office of Highway Safety Awards. Director Tricia Roberts thanked the recipients for their efforts as did Jana Simpler of the Occupant Protection Program (OPP). DUI Coordinator Kathy English dis- tributed portable breathalyzer kits to five agencies heavily involved in keeping drunk drivers off Delaware roads. They were The Delaware State Police, the New Castle County Police, the Newark and Newport police departments and the Alco- hol Beverage Control Commis- sion. The state's three EMS offices, along with nine local police agen- cies, received awards for their par- ticipation in OPP, which included educating the community about the proper way to use seatbelts and child restraint systems. The winners included Bethany Beach, Dover, Milford, Seaford, Re- hoboth Beach, Millsboro, George- town, Greenwood, Smyrna and Delaware State Police, and the New Castle, Kent and Sussex County EMS agencies. Each de- partment was given magnacades, and fluorescent orange stand-up boards advising motorists that a seatbelt or child restraint check- point is up ahead. Officials also presented six "Friends of Highway Safety" plaques, a new award this year. The award is given to individuals who have distinguished them- selves by going above and beyond the call of duty in promoting safe travel in Delaware. They are Jim Courtney of WBOC-TV; Lt. Rick Chamberlin of the Delaware State Police; Marianne Bitner of Kent County EMS; Judge William Mulvaney of Juvenile Court; Williard Heuser of the Division of Alcoholism, Drug Abuse and Mental Health;and Cpl. George Heberling of Delaware State Police Troop 3.
