WASHINGTON — The American College of Emergency Physicians and the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians announced the theme of EMS Week 2022.
“Rising to the Challenge” is this year’s theme. ACEP and NAEMT will lead activities on May 15-21.
“This theme is particularly meaningful now to remind people that every day we are faced with so many new challenges in our lives and yet we still rise above them and continue to respond, support and care for the needs of our communities,” Dr. Gillian Schmitz, MD, FACEP, President of ACEP, said in a video about the upcoming 47th annual event.
Each day of EMS Week will be focused on a specific theme.
- Sunday is health, wellness and resilience day
- Monday is education day
- Tuesday is EMS safety day
- Wednesday is EMS for children day
- Thursday is save-a-life day (CPR & National Stop the Bleed Day)
