National Emergency Medical Services Week

May 15 through 21, 2022, is “National Emergency Medical Services Week,” which celebrates EMS practitioners across the country and recognizes their significant contributions to their local community. The theme for EMS Week 2022 is Rising to the Challenge, presented by the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) in partnership with the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) 

With different themed days, EMS Week aims to build awareness and provide education about EMS professionals who supply medical care at the forefront. Additional topics such as the promotion of public CPR programs, the wellness of EMS providers, and the importance of caring for children are also highlighted throughout the week. 
EMS professionals of Alachua County Fire Rescue provide pre-hospital medical treatment and transfer services 24 hours a day and seven days a week. They are instrumental in keeping the community safe. 

“On behalf of all Alachua County government, I want to thank all EMS heroes for their everyday commitment and resilience,” said ACFR Chief Harold Theus.
