EMS Strong

The American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma encourages you to learn more about and participate in EMS Strong. EMS Strong is a campaign that aims to unite and inspire emergency medical services (EMS) personnel, strengthen the profession on a national level, and expand and celebrate National EMS Week, May 19–25. This year’s EMS Strong theme, “Beyond the Call,” highlights the expanding services and role of EMS in health care and the community. We are supporting this initiative from the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) in partnership with the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT).
