Are You EMS Strong?

EMS Week, May 19-25, is fast approaching! This is a great opportunity to engage with your community to recognize the dedication of your agency's EMS crews and thank them for the work they do each day. The EMS Strong website has several great ideas on how you can mark EMS Week in your community and make sure your agency is EMS Strong for all 365 days of the year!

Each spring, the EMS Section sponsors Fire-Rescue Med, a conference addressing a wide variety of EMS issues. The conference is recognized throughout the industry as the premier gathering of fire service EMS leadership.
