National EMS Week is May 19-25, 2013. This is a time to say thank you to EMS providers. It’s kind of a big deal because otherwise, this is kind of a thankless profession. This isn’t a career you get into to get rich, or get recognition. It’s a career you get into because you love it!
EMS providers come in many shapes and sizes and types. They may be volunteers, private EMS, or career people, but they all have one thing in common. The desire to help other people.
