‘Thank you’: How the industry, local leaders and the public celebrated EMS Week

From the symbolic to the scrumptious, individuals around the country celebrated the annual celebration week in a variety of unique ways


It wasn’t a milestone year for the 46th EMS honor week, but it was a momentous one. For the last 15 months, the spotlight has been trained on public safety as the pandemic raged, civil unrest sparked, and massive political upheaval created an intense demand for emergency response.

As always, EMS showed up and did as much as they could, in the time they were allowed, with the resources they were given, day after day after day, and continue to do so.

This week the country said, “Thank you.”

They said thank you with symbolism.

They said thank you with signs.

They said thank you with continuing education.

They said thank you with food.

They said thank you with recognition.
