U.S. Senators Michael Bennet and Mark Udall announced that the Senate has passed a concurrent resolution that they sponsored to recognize Colorado Springs as the new home of a yearly National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Memorial Service. The resolution congratulates Colorado Springs for being named the home of the annual ceremony to honor fallen first responders. The National EMS Board of Directors elected to move the yearly ceremony from Roanoke, Va., and selected Colorado Springs from a number of competing cities. This year’s 18th Annual National EMS Memorial Service will take place on June 26, 2010, at the First Presbyterian Church in Colorado Springs.  (A similar resolution has been introduced in the House.) The National EMS Memorial Service has been honoring the men and women of America's EMS systems who have made the ultimate sacrifice and laid down their lives in the line of duty since 1993.  For more information….
