National EMS Week


May 20-26, 2018, is the 44th annual National EMS Week. In 1974, President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week to celebrate EMS practitioners and the important work they do in our nation’s communities. NAEMT partners with the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) to lead annual EMS Week activities. Together, NAEMT and ACEP are working to ensure that the important contributions of EMS practitioners in safeguarding the health, safety and wellbeing of their communities are fully celebrated and recognized.

EMS Week brings together local communities and medical personnel to honor the dedication of those who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services of medicine’s “front line.”  Whether celebrated with a company cookout or a catered lunch; an open house, an awards ceremony or even quiet reflection about what it means to be an EMS practitioner, EMS Week is the perfect time to recognize EMS and all that its practitioners do for our nation.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The Memorial Service began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park of approximately 120 survivors and supporters of law enforcement. Decades later, the event, more commonly known as National Police Week, has grown to a series of events which attracts thousands of survivors and law enforcement officers to our Nation’s Capital each year.

The National Peace Officers Memorial Service, which is sponsored by the Grand Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police, is one in a series of events which includes the Candlelight Vigil, which is sponsored by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) and seminars sponsored by Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.)

MDHHS recognizes National Nurses Week 2018 

LANSING, Mich. – The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) is joining partners nationwide to celebrate National Nurses Week to highlight the role nurses play in promoting health and wellness.

This year’s theme, Nurses Inspire, Innovate, Influence recognizes the important roles nurses play in protecting, promoting and improving healthcare for all in all healthcare environments and Michigan communities.

National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6, and ends on May 12 to coincide with Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Nightingale is considered the founder of modern nursing. The purpose of the week-long celebration is to raise awareness around the importance of nursing and the role nurses have in supporting the health and wellness needs of Americans.

“Michigan’s registered nurses play a vital role in helping maintain the health of Michiganders through their hard work and dedication,” said Eden Wells, MDHHS chief medical executive. “It’s important we thank nurses everywhere for the care they provide to improve the quality of life for their patients, families and Michigan communities.”

Today, there are more than 170,000 licensed nurses in Michigan.
