Show Your Support for All EMS Providers
The AHA wants to remind you that EMS Week is a week dedicated to celebrating all EMS providers.
This is an example of an amazing story that is a fitting testament to the hard work and dedication of EMS providers everywhere.
Show your support for all EMS providers this week and use the hashtag #EMSWeek to share a story of the exceptional EMS provider that you know or to thank them for their service.
Off-Duty EMT Saves Baby’s Life With CPR
In honor of EMS Week, we’d like to share Brent Cinberg’s lifesaving story and how he helped a neighbor in need while he was off-duty. “Brent said, “The more people who can perform CPR, the better it is for society as a whole. It’s one of those things in life that you don’t necessarily think you need until you do — but then you’re so happy that you took the time to learn something that can be so powerful.”
