Celebrating EMS Week 2023 – Day 6: Recognition Day
In the spirit of today’s theme, we express our heartfelt gratitude to the remarkable members of the EMS community who go beyond the call every shift
As we approach the end of this EMS Week tribute, today's theme holds a special place: EMS Recognition Day. It is a day to express our heartfelt gratitude to the remarkable members of the EMS industry who consistently go above and beyond the call of duty, embodying unwavering commitment and a spirit of service in their communities.
EMS professionals are compassionate individuals who step forward when others need help the most, offering reassurance, skill and expertise to those in distress. EMS Recognition Day serves as an opportunity to shine a well-deserved spotlight on these exceptional individuals and acknowledge their tireless dedication.
As we cap off EMS Week 2023 with this final recognition day, we want to say one more thank you from all of us at EMS1 – we are grateful for your tireless commitment to the health and wellbeing of your communities.
Check out our final video below honoring the work of individual providers and learn how you can share your appreciation – to your colleagues and your community – for supporting your work in EMS.
