It's National EMS Week

The National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) is again partnering with the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) to lead EMS Week activities to recognize Emergency Medical Services (EMS) workers.

In 1974, President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week to celebrate EMS practitioners and the important work they do. Together, NAEMT and ACEP are working to ensure that the contributions of EMS practitioners in safeguarding the health, safety, and well-being of their communities are fully celebrated and recognized.

If you see a paramedic or medical professional this week, be sure to take the time to thank them for their service to our community, which is more vital than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic.
