ETMC EMS paramedic Ruben Galaz and his wife, Chantel, are the
proud parents of the first baby born in Smith County for the new
year. Gavin Reed Galaz was born at 6:33 a.m. on January 1 at the
ETMC Tyler Family Birthplace. He weighed 8 pounds and was 21 inches
long. The Lindale couple says their due date was later in the week,
so they were surprised when Gavin came early. Ruben has been a
paramedic with ETMC EMS for more than a year.
