In our profession, we take pride in always being ready. Ready to go at any time. Ready to help whoever needs us. Ready to face whatever situation awaits us on the scene. Being ready means preparing for the next emergency, the next call from a member of our community in distress.
At the beginning of a new decade, we are also preparing for a future that may look much different than our present. For our profession, 2020 presents a chance to use the lessons of the past to focus our sights on the future. Preparing for tomorrow is more than getting ready for the next call. Tomorrow may bring a new epidemic, new technologies and new expectations for EMS in an evolving healthcare system.
This year, we salute EMS professionals for being ready every day and for preparing for tomorrow and the many tomorrows to follow.
