EMS WEEK 2019

EMS Strong – Beyond the Call

Virginians rely on Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel to respond to the call for help and to provide quality prehospital care during their greatest time of need. National EMS Week is May 19 – 25, 2019. EMS for Children Day, May 22, focuses on the pediatric patient and the specialized care required when providing treatment for them.

During this special week, we recognize the dedication of 35,817 EMS providers and 585 agencies in Virginia. We commend their continued commitment to the citizens of the Commonwealth and to the EMS system. We are especially thankful for their life-saving efforts, not just during this week but every day!

National EMS Week will feature a theme for each day of this special week. Learn more about EMS Week.
