CABELL COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) – Cabell County Emergency Medical Services (CCEMS) took home some prestigious honors Thursday, including a nationally recognized award.

The agency received the Gold Plus award presented by the American Heart Association. Cabell County is one of two departments in the state to receive the nationally known award.

There are about 200 departments in West Virginia. The Gold Plus award indicates the highest level of cooperation between CCEMS and local hospitals (Cabell Huntington Hospital and St. Mary’s Medical Center). Last year, CCEMS received the Gold award.

Also, Cabell County EMS received the training institute of the year, and Marsha Knight was selected as training instructor of the year.

The awards were presented Thursday morning by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources Bureau of Public Health. It took place at the Cabell County Commission meeting.
