In 1974, President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week to celebrate EMS practitioners and the important work they do in our nation's communities. NAEMT and ACEP will partner to celebrate EMS Week May 17-23, 2020, to celebrate and recognize the important contributions of EMS practitioners in safeguarding the health, safety and wellbeing of their communities.
The 2020 EMS Week theme is "Ready Today. Prepare for Tomorrow." Thank you for your sacrifices, dedication and service to your communities. Happy EMS Week from EMS1.
