It’s about so much more than lights and sirens. It’s about giving the most of ourselves in the name of helping others. It’s about being there for people when things go wrong—and doing our part to help make sure things go right. It’s about supporting each other when things get tough, and being there for our communities when they look to us for help. It’s about being in service to others, every day.


The EMS Strong campaign seeks to celebrate, unify and inspire the men and women of our nation’s emergency medical services. Created by the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) in partnership with the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT), EMS Strong brings together associations, EMS services, sponsors and national media to honor the dedication of EMS practitioners nationwide.
