Minnesota State Senator Tony Lourey has received the distinguished “State Guardian of Emergency Medical Services Award” from the Minnesota Ambulance Association. The MAA presents this award for individuals who exemplify a commitment to advancing emergency medical services (EMS) in Minnesota. Lourey has been a strong advocate in his tenure at the legislature for funding of EMS programs, funding and working on tax issues for Minnesota’s Ambulance Services.

Lourey was honored Wednesday, Aug. 24, in the Minnesota State Senate building.

As the Health Finance chair, Lourey has supported EMS funding, ground-breaking health care reform around community paramedic/EMT programs along with innovative EMS taxing districts. He has had a passion for rural EMS services in his role as state senator.
