Happy EMS Week to all EMS providers and leadership, but a special shout out to the team of Star City Fire & EMS!
The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), in partnership with the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT), has announced this year’s EMS STRONG campaign theme: “Ready Today. Preparing for Tomorrow”. The annual EMS STRONG campaign provides opportunities to recognize the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) community, enhance and strengthen the profession on a national level, and celebrate National EMS Week, May 17-23, 2020.
The campaign brings together key organizations, media partners, and corporate sponsors that are committed to recognizing and fortifying the EMS community, commending recent groundbreaking accomplishments, and increasing awareness of National EMS Week.
“As we enter a new decade, we look ahead to the future of prehospital care. This future will include dramatic improvements in patient care, thanks to advances in research, information sharing, and lifechanging technology,” says William P. Jaquis, MD, FACEP, President of ACEP. “During National EMS Week, and throughout the year, we are proud to recognize EMS and fire professionals who tirelessly serve their communities and care for patients and their families every day.”
