Inspired by the Emergency Medical Service (EMS) Systems Act of 1973, which sought to give all individuals equal access to emergency medical services, the first EMS Week was established in 1974, when President Gerald Ford declared a week in November to be "National Emergency Medical Services Week". Reestablished by The American College of Emergency Physicians in 1982, EMS Week was moved to October, then ten years later shifted to May in order to separate it from Fire Prevention Week.
EMS workers show dedication to their communities through service, and are some of the first people to answer the call in times of distress. During EMS Week, recognize your EMS professionals for their caring and commitment, and say thanks with useful gifts of appreciation as well as practical items perfect for on shift and off. You'll find lunch bags, drinkware, tech products, T-shirts, and more exclusive gifts displaying recognition themes including EMS: Every Call Counts and EMS: Serving With Pride.
