COVID-19 UPDATE

Thank you to the EMS professionals on the frontline of the COVID-19 crisis--planning, adapting and responding every day to take care of their citizens and communities.

 

EMS Strong seeks to recognize the selfless calling that makes EMS so vital. This year's EMS Week theme is Ready Today. Preparing for Tomorrow. This theme, which was developed some time ago, is particularly meaningful as we see the EMS community rallying today to support the COVID-19 crisis, while still responding to the everyday emergencies that are happening in our communities.

 

We know that EMS Week, which will be celebrated May 17-23, is likely not in the front of your mind as this crisis unfolds. The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), the National Association of EMTs (NAEMT) and our partner associations, will continue to assess the implications of how EMS Week is recognized this year, abiding by national and local guidelines. Still, now more than ever, it is important to remember that a major component of EMS Week is honoring and celebrating our EMS professionals who are supporting the health and well-being of our nation.

 

Please make sure to visit the websites of our supporting organizations, media and corporate sponsors to learn how they are helping in the response to COVID-19.
