EMS Stars Announcement:
After careful consideration, and in light of the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are postponing the EMS Star of Life Awards Program  previously scheduled for May 20, 2020.  We hope to reschedule sometime in September which will enable us to provide the ceremony that our providers deserve in a safe environment. We are heartbroken and know this is a very challenging time for everyone, and appreciate your understanding and support.

We remain excited to host the EMS Star of Life Awards ceremony later this year and will get back to you with more information on specific dates in the coming weeks.
