Angela sits down with Dr. Jim Nossett, director of emergency medical services at Hendricks Regional Health, to answer questions about an upcoming event to honor fallen Deputy Jacob Pickett. In 2016, President and CEO Kevin Speer initiated appreciation events he calls "Chill & Grills" to honor local emergency agencies.
He had an idea to hold a Chill & Grill to benefit Deputy Pickett's Memorial Fund. He reached out to Jennie Pickett with the idea and obtained her blessing to move forward. The people who serve in our local emergency agencies hold a special place in his heart.
In his role, Nossett oversees the education of our areas EMTs and paramedics (while working in our emergency department). In addition, he is a member of the Brownsburg Police Emergency Response Team and assists with SWAT drills. Before going to medical school, Nossett was an EMT and a firefighter.
The Deputy Jacob Pickett Chill & Grill event is June 21. Come to the Hendricks Regional Health Brownsburg Hospital parking lot (5492 North Ronald Reagan Parkway, Brownsburg - Exit 68, I-74) between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. to enjoy your choice of burger, brat or hot dog.
