May 17-23, 2020, is the 46th annual National EMS Week. In 1974, President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week to celebrate EMS practitioners and the important work they do in our nation’s communities. NAEMT partners with the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) to lead annual EMS Week activities.
We honor our nation’s paramedics, EMTs, flight crews, and other EMS professionals who tirelessly give of themselves to save lives. Compassion is in your DNA. Thank you for your drive, dedication, and determination to protect our health. We’re safer and stronger because of you. #emsweek #paramedic #EMT #HEMS #ambulance #everydayheroes
