Lt. John P. Murphy EMT of the Year

In early 2006, Aetna lost one of the most influential people and best leaders its EMS program has ever known. Lt. John P. Murphy served our EMS division for seven years in the capacity of Ambulance Lieutenant and Captain. During John’s time in office he took our EMS training to new heights, increased our levels of coverage, served on many state committees and implemented many programs that are still up and running today. In 2006, the EMT of the Year Award was renamed in John’s honor to recognize a member who shares the passion that John had for Aetna’s EMS program. The Lt. John P. Murphy Memorial Award for EMT of the Year award is presented to an individual who is passionate about Aetna’s EMS program and serves as a role model for others entering the field. The recipient is not selected by any one individual, but is nominated by fellow members of the fire department.
