EMS Memorial

The mission of the National EMS Memorial Service is to honor and remember those men and women of America’s Emergency Medical Services who have given their lives in the line of duty, and to recognize the sacrifice they have made in service to their communities and their fellow man.

Each year, hundreds of family members, friends, coworkers, EMS and political leaders, and colleagues from EMS agencies from around the nation gather together in Roanoke to remember our honorees.

The National EMS Memorial is not a single event but rather a weekend of events centered around the ceremony known as the National EMS Memorial Service.

The 16th Annual National EMS Memorial Service took place on May 21, 2016 at Hyatt Regency Crystal City at Reagan National Airport, 2799 Jefferson Davis Highway in Arlington.
