Corey Boisvert, Lifesaver award

Corey Boisvert, assistant chief of Morristown Emergency Medical Services, has received the Vermont Department of Health Lifesaving Award. Boisvert pulled a man from a burning vehicle after a crash on Route 100 in Eden in late May. Dan Batsie, chief of Vermont EMS, presented the award to Boisvert at a Morristown Select Board meeting July 1.

Morristown EMS Chief William Mapes had recommended Boisvert for state recognition.

“Corey is five-foot-nothing tall, and recovering from a surgical knee repair,” Mapes wrote in his recommendation. “Her determination, leadership and courage reflect honorably on herself, our agency and town, and the Vermont public safety community.”
