National EMS Week is being celebrated nationwide this year Sunday, May 21 to Saturday, May 27. Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Day is Wednesday, May 24.
The opportunity brings with it local awareness of emergency medical services, and quite often includes community open houses, volunteer recruitment and hiring drives, and opportunities for appreciation, recognition and goodwill.
The 2017 theme is "EMS STRONG: Always in Service".
To help communities, elected officials, and stakeholders better understand EMS, NAEMT has created a new What Is EMS? informational brochure. >> Click to download brochure.
National EMS Week was established by the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), and is in partnership with the National Association of EMTs.
