Medical Director for REVA Dr David Farcy has received an EMS award for his work with first responders and law enforcement by the Miami Beach (Florida, US) Chamber of Commerce’s Pillar Board. The award was made during the Chamber’s fifth annual Heroes Breakfast – an event which recognises the accomplishments of outstanding individuals doing brave work in the city.

REVA is a medical aircraft and air ambulance service provider operating throughout North America and has headquarters in nearby Fort Lauderdale. REVA’s President and Chief Operating Officer Shannon Schell congratulated Dr Farcy on behalf of the REVA team: “The recognition affirms his dedication to emergency medical care, which is REVA’s specialty. We’re thankful for Dr Farcy’s support of the real heroes in our community and the people they serve.”

Dr Farcy has led REVA’s medical department since 2015 and is the first physician to receive an EMS award in the history of the programme. As Chairman of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center and President of the American Academy of Emergency Medicine, he has worked closely with City of Miami Beach police officers, firefighters and ocean rescue first responders to maintain seamless emergency care for the residents and visitors of Miami Beach.

“He’s passionate about improving prehospital and disaster medicine. He has assisted in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew, the Mexico City earthquake, Hurricane Mitch, the September 11 attacks and the earthquake in Haiti,” said Steven D Sonenreich, Mount Sinai Medical Center’s President and CEO, while presenting Farcy with the award.

“This is a unique honour that is very special to me,” Dr Farcy said. “That I’m the first physician to receive such recognition is truly humbling. But it means just as much that it is coming for my work with people who put their lives on the line every day to help protect our communities.”
