Taylor Edwards, full-time EMT, joined Canandaigua Emergency Squad about a year and a half ago as a way into the medical field. She was looking to gain experience before committing to a school and wanted to give back to the community.

Today, Taylor is positive the medical field is where she belongs. She’s enrolled in school to become a nurse and believes CES has helped her become a better provider.
