National EMS Week runs from May 19th to May 25th! Help us in celebrating and thanking all our wonderful EMS providers, both volunteer and career providers who give of themselves to keep us all safer every day. Our Nation's EMS system represents the American spirit at its best, with many ambulances in the United States partially or fully staffed by volunteers. They devote countless hours to keeping their communities, including often underserved rural areas, safe. To read the President's Proclamation, click here.
