Interview: Keith Wages, Director of OEMS
We would like to take time to recognize Keith Wages for his 40 years of service to EMS. Keith Wages, Director of the Georgia Office of EMS and Trauma, has dedicated his entire career to the EMS community, serving as an EMT, EMS Director, EMS Program Director, Deputy State Director and State Director of EMS and Trauma, as well as serving as a Consultant for Disaster and Emergency Preparedness issues.  As Keith prepares to retire from the Georgia Office of EMS and Trauma, we wanted to give Keith a chance to tell us more about his career and his accomplishments, but also let him address the Georgia EMS community. The magazine has an excerpt from our question and answer interview session with Keith, but you can read the interview in its entirety here.
