Late Arlington resident Elaine Valerio, who died in November 2012, recently received the “EMS Nurse of the Year” award posthumously from the Metropolitan Boston EMS Council.

“Elaine was an outstanding nurse and dedicated to EMS and its providers,” said Bill Mergendahl, CEO of Professional Ambulance (Pro EMS), who nominated Valerio for the award. “We were fortunate to have such an outstanding resource and friend as an EMS nurse. She loved to teach and that came through clearly to every paramedic student who visited her ER.”

Valerio was employed by the Cambridge Health Alliance for the last five years.

The Metropolitan Boston EMS Council is the agency designated by the state Department of Public Health to coordinate the delivery of emergency medical services within the 62 cities and towns in the Metropolitan Boston Area.
