National Emergency Medical Services Week, May 20-26, 2012
During National Emergency Medical Services Week, we recognize the tremendous role that EMS practitioners make to improve health in communities across the nation. Their dedication to providing emergency care is evident with one statistic: more than 36 million patients were cared for by EMS professionals in 2011 alone.
Emergency care professionals are committed to delivering emergency medical care in the community. They strive for seamless care, from the field to the hospital emergency department or trauma center.
