Celebrating Success: National EMS Week

Celebrating success was the theme of today’s Everyday EMS Tips column. As you know EMS work is not easy. If it was, anybody could do it. It can be messy, tiring, stressful and thankless. Although it doesn’t always feel so, you are doing something important for people that need help. Make sure to take a few moments this week to accept the praise and credit you have earned from supervisors, co-workers, patients, and hospital staff. Visit to read the full column of Everyday EMS Tips for celebrating your successes.
