May 20-26, 2018, is the 44th annual National EMS Week. In 1974, President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week to celebrate EMS practitioners and the important work they do in our nation’s communities. Join us in celebrating your local paramedics, emts and administrators this week.  Thank you for all the trainings attended, calls responded to, midnight hours, public safety events, little extras to help patients concentrate healing, smiles and humor. Thank you for all you do!
