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!
