Ambulance station named for EMT

Posthumously recognized for volunteer work


Castle Rock Ambulance Service will recognize the contributions of a longtime EMT by naming its ambulance station.

During a ceremony Tuesday evening, Ambulance Director John Taylor said the station will be named after Joyce Patterson, a woman who served with the ambulance service for nearly 40 yours.

Patterson died in Green River, Sept. 16, 2016.

“What do you say? Joyce was a fabulous person,” Tasha Urbatsch, who worked with Joyce on the ambulance service, said.

Urbatsch said Joyce took her under her wing, teaching Urbatsch the importance of being the supervising EMT of an ambulance.
