Maine Great-Grandmother Still Driving the Ambulance as EMT Volunteer

Edna Mitchell is Maine’s oldest EMT. The 87-year-old volunteer at the Liberty Fire Department has been driving an ambulance for 37 years. Mitchell first became interested in medical care during World War II, when, as a high-school freshman, she helped with a first-aid class. At age 50, she left a long career in teaching to earn her Emergency Medical Technician’s certification and has been driving an ambulance ever since.  Read more about her story here.
