EMS Week 2014 May 18- May 24

This year marks the 40th anniversary of EMS (Emergency Medical Service) week.  In 1974, President Gerald Ford made the started the week to recognize the dedication of these medical personnel  who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services of emergency medicine's "front line".

Last year, President Obama said:

"When Americans find themselves in times of crisis — from car accidents to national tragedies — our robust network of EMS professionals ensures that quality medical care is only moments away. This week, let us RECOMMIT TO SUPPORTING EMS personnel and thanking them for their heroic contributions to our lives."

If you know an EMT or Paramedic, be sure to Thank Them for their service this week. A great way to do so is by sharing it on CareStars.com where you can give online recognition at no cost.  Let's show them how much we appreciate their dedication.
