The National EMS Memorial Service will be held Saturday, May 29, in Roanoke, Virginia. The nation’s EMS providers, agencies, and emergency communications centers are encouraged to participate in observing a moment of radio silence timed to coincide with the moment of silence observed during the Memorial Service. A “Suggested Script” and instructions for those wishing to participate is available at http://nmos.nemsms.org, ftp://nemsms.org/All_files/Free_Files/nmosinfo.exe (zip format), or e-mail email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since 1992, the National EMS Memorial Service has honored EMS providers who have died in the line of duty. Each honoree’s name is engraved on a bronze oak leaf on the “Tree of Life” memorial on exhibit at the “To The Rescue” Museum, Roanoke. Honorees’ families are presented with a medallion, symbolizing eternal memory; a U.S. flag that has flown over the nation’s capital, symbolizing service to the country; and a white rose, symbolizing the honorees’ undying love.
