Entry Description

Hoosiers Recognize Emergency Medical Services Professionals

National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week, a week celebrating and honoring emergency medical services personnel, is May 18-24. The theme for this year is “EMS: Dedicated. For Life,” and Wednesday, May 21 is Emergency Medical Services for Children Day.

It’s the 40th year celebration of an organized EMS system in Indiana. In 1974, the General Assembly passed a bill in the creation of the EMS Commission. Indiana has 24,000 EMS personnel, over 100 EMS training institutions and over 700 EMS providers.

National EMS week brings together local communities and medical personnel who are on the front-line of medicine. There are three goals of EMS week: to promote EMS service within the community; to educate the public on safety and health-related topics; and to provide information on new EMS procedures or equipment.

Emergency Medical Services are frequently the entry point to Indiana’s healthcare system. EMS Week recognizes professionals’ dedication and encourages communities to better know their local EMS providers.

Contact local EMS providers or the local Emergency Management Agency in your county for information about local events.
