NDHC’s Emergency Medical Services Manager, Tom Engen, was honored recently with the inaugural Bradley Burgum Leadership Award from the North Dakota EMS Association.
The award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the provision, development and improvement to local, regional and state prehospital care and who possess and display the moral and ethical standards of integrity with a commitment to excellent care.
Tom has been an EMT since 1980. Since 2011, he has been managing NDHC’s emergency response services, which respond to about 200 calls annually. Tom is also an active state leader in the EMS Association, which represents, educates and advocates for emergency services providers across the state. He is currently a regional advisor for the association.
“Small towns need (ambulance service). They need people who are willing to step up and help because you never know when that person in distress could be your kid, your parents, or your in-laws,” he said.
