In 2012, Kacy Allgood was awarded the Grace and Harold Sewell Fellowship for embedded medical librarians. She currently provides information services to Indianapolis EMS, the largest 911 ambulance service in Indiana, the Indiana University Department of Emergency Medicine – Division of Out-of-Hospital Care, MESH, a disaster preparedness agency & healthcare coalition and Indiana Emergency Medical Services for Children. All of these agencies collaborate to provide evidence-based prehospital care for Indianapolis. Kacy got her EMT-B from Decatur Township Fire Department (Indianapolis) in 1998, an undergraduate in Business in 2003 and her MLS in 2007 – both from Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis. Prior to her work for emergency medical services, she spent four years as a reference librarian at the Indiana University School of Medicine Library. She also spent several years in market research. When she’s not working, she likes to bike, swim, hike and get her cats stoned on catnip.
