National Emergency Medical Services Week 2012

May 20 through 26 is National EMS Week 2012.

This year's theme is "EMS: Not a Job. A Calling."

May 23 is set aside for Emergency Medical Services for Children Day.

Please visit the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) to order your planning guide (kit) online. You can order only 1 kit online this year. If you need to order more than 1 kit, please click HERE to download the order form. Please return the order form to Denise Fechner no later than Dec. 15, 2012. ACEP plans to distribute the 2012 kits earlier this year so your cooperation is greatly appreciated in meeting this deadline.

EMS Week has been an excellent platform for getting our EMS message out, not only during EMS Week but over the course of the entire year as we plan events and celebrations of the hard work performed by EMS every single day. The kit contains vendor information, planning tips, industry editorials, trends and ideas from a global perspective which are unique and helpful to the EMS community across your state and the nation.

EMS Week has been celebrated for almost 40 years. It is estimated that around 30,000 kits will be sought this year. The EMS Week Facebook page has been up for two years and enjoys over 13,000 friends. As EMS continues to grow and mature over the years, ACEP looks to each state as a partner in spreading the message to the recognition and thank you to EMS all across the country.
