EMS WEEK

May 19-25, 2024

HONORING OUR PAST, FORGING OUR FUTURE.

 

 

EMS Week May 19-25 to honor the dedication, commitment, and sacrifice of emergency medical service professionals around the country. This year marks the 50th anniversary of national EMS Week and the 2024 theme is “Honoring Our Past, Forging Our Future.”

 

For many patients, their first interaction in an emergency is with the EMS professionals they trust to come into their homes and work in their communities. Emergency physicians are grateful to lead EMS teams and we are proud of our EMS colleagues who ensure life-saving care begins well before patients arrive in the emergency department.

 

“EMS Week celebrates the paramedics, EMTs, and other EMS professionals who work diligently to care for their patients and serve their communities in times of crisis.
