Morris A. Miller Awards

In 2002, the Scott County Emergency Medical Services Council (EMSAC) established a “Health Hero Award/Outstanding Service Award” to honor those individuals and organizations that have performed service above and beyond the call of duty for their fellow citizens experiencing medical need.

The awards were named the “Morris A. Miller Health Hero Award/Outstanding Service Award” in honor of the late Morris A. Miller. Mr. Miller was highly respected in the EMS Community and had worked diligently for many years in the area of pre-hospital care in Scott County and throughout the metro area. His achievements in the realm of public service establish the goals and objectives of the awards presented each year by Scott County.

In 2013, the Scott County All Hazards Committee decided to add a third award honoring individuals for their length of service in consistently performing volunteer or community based work or employment involving emergency medical services.
