Napa County EMS Logo

The winner for the Napa County EMS Agency patch designer contest was Diana Jex-Weese. As the contest winner Diana was presented with an IPad which was donated by AMR.

This patch design is much more than a logo...it's an identity that represents the body of Napa County EMS. Great job Diana!
