National EMS Week: May 16-22

Please take a moment to honor your local emergency medical service (EMS) providers by thanking them for caring for our communities. First responder leaders have been at the collaborative table since the inception of the Central Ohio Trauma System (COTS) and remain valued partners in improving outcomes.


The National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) President, Chief Bruce Evans, said it best “Throughout the pandemic, EMS has been on the frontlines, caring for the sickest COVID-19 patients, while also staffing COVID-19 testing and vaccine clinics. EMS Week is a chance for communities to come together and express their gratitude for EMS practitioners."

Check out this great blog from Dr. Anita Somani explaining all they learned on the walk, why these community get togethers are more important than ever, and how other local women physicians can get involved.
