EMS Week Resources

Next month is EMS Week – an annual event to recognize and celebrate the dedication of EMS providers to their communities.

More information about EMS Week and planning resources are available from the American College of Emergency Physicians.

Some things to do during EMS week:
1) Member longevity recognition
2) Public open house events
3) Department social instead of monthly training

What have you done to celebrate EMS Week and recognize EMS providers?
