Feb 26, 2016

The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), in partnership with NAEMT, announces this year’s EMS STRONG theme: “Called to Care”. The campaign continues to recognize and inspire emergency medical services (EMS) personnel, strengthen the profession on a national level, and expand and amplify National EMS Week (May 15-21).

The campaign brings together key associations, media partners, and corporate sponsors who are committed to celebrating the EMS professional, strengthening the profession, and bringing EMS Week into the future.  

“ACEP has been a long-time supporter of national EMS week,” said ACEP president Dr. Jay A. Kaplan, FACEP. “Through this ongoing annual campaign, and the partnership with NAEMT, we look forward to further expanding national EMS Week and bringing more awareness to the extraordinary men and women of EMS.”

The campaign’s website provides inspiring EMS personnel stories and profiles, as well as EMS Week ideas, activities, and templates. The website also encourages engagement from EMS personnel and invites them to share EMS STRONG content with their own social media networks.

“NAEMT is dedicated to representing the professional interests of all EMS practitioners, including federal leadership, funding, and public policy,” said NAEMT President Conrad “Chuck” Kearns, MBA, Paramedic, A-EMD. “Through this partnership with ACEP, the EMS STRONG campaign is elevating the importance of supporting and recognizing all of those who have been called to care.”
