Shaping Our Industry

This section is designed to remember the individuals of the EMS family that have in some way been involved and/or shape the Emergency Medical Services industry. A memoriam is a special reflection and often a celebration of a loved one’s life, far more than a somber reflection on his or her death.

EMS is a small, but close family and we need to take the time to remember those that have impacted the profession, those that have dedicated the time and commitment it takes to put others first and help those in need. Operators, practitioners, volunteers, anyone involved in this industry deserves to be remembered as someone special.
