Celebrating EMS Week 2019
HEMSI is joining EMS providers across the country in celebrating the 45th Annual National EMS Week. HEMSI will follow its tradition of honoring fellow first responders in Madison County and will also recognize employees reaching milestones of service.
The origin of National EMS Week came in 1974 when President Gerald Ford first authorized a celebration of EMS practitioners and the important work they do in our nation's communities. The national designation honors the dedication of those who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services of medicine's “front line.”
2019 continues a partnership between the National Association of EMTs (NAEMT) and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) to promote the theme of EMS Strong – Beyond the Call to ensure recognition of the important contributions of EMS practitioners in safeguarding the health, safety, and well-being of their communities.
