EMS Week 2016

IT’S TIME TO REMEMBER

Senate bill 2628 introduced to the 114th U.S. Senate

IN HONOR OF EMS WEEK — PLEASE CONTACT YOUR U.S. SENATORS AND ASK THEM TO SUPPORT SENATE 2628 “TO AUTHORIZE THE NATIONAL EMS MEMORIAL FOUNDATION TO ESTABLISH A COMMEMORATIVE WORK IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA AND ITS ENVIRONS.”

“The commitment of the first responders of Emergency Medical Services to others, at a moment of notice and despite risk, exemplifies the finest traditions of the spirit of the people of the United States. All too often the risks associated with the critical role of Emergency Medical Services results in an unacceptable rate of injury and fatality. The sacrifice and commitment of Emergency Medical Services in service to the United States is deserving of a commemorative work.” — Senator Chris Coon

On March 3, 2016 U.S. Senator Chris Coons of Delaware introduced Senate bill 2628 into the 114th U.S. Senate. Senate 2628 would “authorize the National Emergency Medical Services Foundation to establish a commemorative work in the District of Columbia and its environs.” Once passed this bill would allow the National EMS Memorial Foundation to continue its progress toward building the National EMS Memorial.”

Moving this bill through the legislative process requires the voice of the EMS community to express their support for an EMS Memorial commemorating the commitment, service and sacrifice of EMS providers.
