EMS Week Celebration on the State House Lawn

Vermont EMS Week

Celebrate EMS week with a day on the State House lawn!

Emergency Medical Services systems across the country will be celebrating EMS Week from Sunday, May 21st through 27th, and Vermont is no exception.  EMS Week is an opportunity for agencies, districts and hospitals to highlight the importance of EMS in our communities and to thank EMS providers for their dedication and service.  To that end, the Vermont Department of Health will be hosting an EMS Day on the State House lawn on Tuesday, May 23rd from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM. The rain date will be Thursday, May 25th. At this event, we will be joined by Vermont dignitaries in presenting annual awards for First Responder Service of the Year, Ambulance Service of the Year, BLS Provider of the Year, ALS Provider of the Year, and EMS Educator of the Year, EMS for Children Champion 2017, and the EMS Lifetime Award.

This year’s EMS week theme is EMS Strong: Always in Service  Learn more about National EMS week through the American College of Emergency Physicians.
