National Rural Health Day is November 16th. This special day showcases the efforts of rural healthcare providers, State Offices of Rural Health, and other rural stakeholders to address the unique healthcare challenges that rural citizens face today and into the future.
November 13-17 is Crash Responder Safety Week. This year’s theme is “Protect Those who Protect You!” Every minute of every day, law enforcement, fire and rescue, emergency medical services, public works, transportation, towing, and other responders work to make roadways safe for all road users. These traffic incident responders put their lives at risk when clearing each of the nearly 7 million motor vehicle crashes that occur in the U.S. each year.
On behalf of the Central Region, Arizona Emergency Medical Services, Inc (AEMS) is pleased to support the Arizona Bureau of EMS & Trauma System's 2023 EMCT of the Year Award contest. Each Region was charged with selecting a finalist to receive this award, which recognizes outstanding EMCTs across Arizona who have gone above and beyond to serve their communities.
