Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week is May 19-25
COMMUNITIES ARE ENCOURAGED TO HONOR EMS PROFESSIONALS
Pocahontas, AR – When accidents or medical emergencies occur, most people feel overwhelmed and are not sure of what to do. Thankfully, within our community there are dedicated men and women who respond when a life is on the line. These professionals makeup our emergency medical services system (EMS) and May 19-25 has been set aside to recognize and honor the work they do.
Heart attack. Stoke. Vehicle Accidents. To the general public, these are daunting situations in which most people would not know how to react. But to the professionals at ProMed Ambulance, and to other emergency service workers, responding to such situations is all in a day’s work. Emergency Medical Services (EMS) represents the “vital link” between help and the people who desperately need it.
May 19-25 is National Emergency Medical Services Week. The EMS Week theme for 2013 is “EMS: One Mission One Team.” This slogan celebrates the exceptional service being provided to countless patients every day, often under incredibly challenging circumstances. It illustrates the fact that EMS providers are dedicated to saving lives and limiting suffering, even if that requires personal sacrifice and risk. They are selfless professionals who put their own lives on hold, day after day, to respond to the emergency needs of others throughout our community.
The EMS system is comprised of EMT’s, paramedics, first responders, 911 dispatchers, and other allied health care works such as emergency physicians and nurses who work together as a team to care for the critically ill or injured.
During EMS Week, ambulance providers actively promote public safety issues and raise awareness for the role they play in protecting communities. In celebrating this special time, citizens are encouraged to show appreciation to the hard working, dedicated men and women who make up our EMS system.
