Excerpt from the EMS Week Supplement
First authorized by President Gerald Ford in 1973, National EMS Week is a time for the public to recognize and show appreciation for the people who perform the work of Emergency Medical Services. This year, May 15-21 has been designated as National EMS Week.
“Called to Care” is this year’s theme. We are all called to care. For our communities, families, and each other. Those of us in EMS are called to care every day. Every shift. Every hour. All across Maine. From Kittery to Fort Kent. In Portland to Caribou. In Jackman or Eastport. Whether working in a dispatch center or on an ambulance or in a hospital. Whether volunteering in the local community. working full-time or part-time, or just being there whenever needed, EMS providers in Maine give a level of comfort and security to people throughout our State.
