National EMS Memorial Foundation Hosts Weekend of Events to Honor Fallen EMS Personnel

The National EMS Memorial Foundation (NEMSMF), whose mission is to design, build
and maintain a permanent EMS memorial in Washington DC or its environs, recognizes
the men and women of EMS across our nation, who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

In their honor, and to honor all of those who give of themselves every day so that others
may live, the National EMS Memorial Foundation is hosting a weekend of events
coinciding with the end of National EMS Week, May 18-24, 2014. The Foundation
encourages all members of the national EMS community to join us for these events.
