This week, May 21-27, is the 43rd annual National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week! All firefighters in the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department are EMS providers by virtue of all having certification as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) at the minimum. As well, several hundred more have certification as a Paramedic.
So thank you to all of our career and volunteer fire and rescue personnel for all you do in the world of emergency medicine! Look for some posts this week here, and on our social media sites, celebrating EMS Week.
