Honoring Emergency Medical Services during EMS Week

Honoring Emergency Medical Services during EMS Week

Dept. of Health & Human Services

A statement from Dr. Nicole Lurie, Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response
This week, our nation honors emergency medical service (EMS) professionals for their dedication to public service.

Over the past century, the field of emergency medical services has grown from hospital interns who rode in horse-drawn carriages transporting the sick and injured in a few cities during the 1800s. Today our nation draws on diverse network of nearly a million EMS physicians, nurses, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, dispatchers, and support staff in every community. With each passing year, EMS has demonstrated increasing importance in our nation’s health care system.
