Happy EMS Week from UBMD Emergency Medicine EMS Division!

By Events

The UBMD Emergency Medicine EMS Division wishes to express our gratitude to all EMS providers during this week of celebration!  The theme for EMS Week 2018 is EMS STRONG: “Stronger Together”.  Whether paid or volunteer, the work provided is incredibly important and many times with little thanks.

This week is an opportunity to honor EMS providers and memorialize EMS as a profession. The EMS Strong theme encourages us to evaluate who we are as EMS providers and serves as a reminder that our profession is a part of something bigger.

We consider it a privilege to work with so many dedicated individuals throughout the year and look forward to working with each of you: our partners, colleagues and friends.

Happy EMS Week!
