COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Midtown Medical Center held its first annual public safety luncheon on Wednesday.

The event was established to have a better connection between the medical community and public safety workers in the area. 

During the luncheon, the hospital recognized public safety workers who went beyond the call of duty. 

Michael Zimmermann, Director of Emergency Services, says it is vital to have a strong relationship with public safety since they have first contacts with these who require emergency medical services. 

“It's the 911 dispatcher, the police officer directing traffic, it's all of the above EMS,” Zimmerman said. “It's part of our system we could not provide great care to our patients without public safety.” 

Zimmerman says it's important that events like this to strengthen relationships so public safety knows what capabilities hospitals have.
