"I want to thank the brave EMS workers who are working to protect the health, safety, and wellbeing of our people in these challenging times. Thank you for your selfless dedication and extraordinary efforts!" Governor Brian Kemp said in a video social media post on Facebook and Twitter this morning, May 18. "We are deeply grateful for all that you do. Thanks, and God Bless."


In 1974, President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week to celebrate EMS practitioners and the important work they do in our nation's communities. National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians partners with the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) each year to lead annual EMS Week activities.


"Together, NAEMT and ACEP are working to ensure that the important contributions of EMS practitioners in safeguarding the health, safety and wellbeing of their communities are fully celebrated and recognized," states NAEMT Executive Director Pamela Lane.


EMS Week brings together local communities and medical personnel to honor the dedication of those who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services of medicine's "front line."  This year, five days of EMS Week have a theme that represents the diverse nature of EMS.


  • Monday - EMS Education Day

  • Tuesday - Safety Tuesday

  • Wednesday - EMS for Children Day

  • Thursday - Save-A-Life Day (CPR & Stop the Bleed)

  • Friday - EMS Recognition Day



FYI


EMS is on the frontline for the response to the COVID-19 crisis and we are saddened for those who have died from COVID-19 related complications. Their names are listed In Memoriam.
