By  | 

There are many people that help ensure a safe and healthy concert. One crucial element are volunteer EMS crews.

Nearly 20 EMS crews staffed the Nebraskaland Days concerts over the weekend, most of them volunteers.

Volunteer EMS workers from North Platte, Hershey and Sutherland showed up to help out the North Platte EMS staff so that they could continue to respond to any health emergencies in the city.

Officials said during the concert, things like heat and alcohol are the main causes of health emergencies they respond to.

The West Central Nebraska Medical Reserve Core was also out helping.
