National EMS Week

EMS Week 2019 Beyond the Call

National EMS Week is May 17-23, 2020
The 46th Annual National EMS Week

Thank you to the EMS professionals on the frontline of the COVID-19 crisis--planning, adapting and responding every day to take care of their communities.

This year’s EMS Week theme is Ready Today. Preparing for Tomorrow. This theme, which was developed some time ago, is particularly meaningful as we see the EMS community rallying today to support the COVID-19 crisis, while still responding to the everyday emergencies that are happening in our communities.


Join us in celebrating EMS Week to honor the dedication of those who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services of medicine's "front line."


This year, five days of EMS Week have a theme that represents the diverse nature of EMS.

  • Monday - EMS Education Day
  • Tuesday - Safety Tuesday
  • Wednesday - EMS for Children Day
  • Thursday - Save-A-Life Day (CPR & Stop the Bleed)
  • Friday - EMS Recognition Day
