NAEMT has gone above and beyond in assisting the AAA with its advocacy efforts regarding Medicare relief legislation and Public Safety Officers Death Benefits, as well as supporting the annual medic recognition program, Stars of Life, the AAA notes. 

Awardees are selected annually by the President of the American Ambulance Association. This year's awards are presented at the Learning Innovation Luncheon at the 2011 AAA Annual Convention and Tradeshow on Tuesday, November 15 in Las Vegas.
