The New York State Department of Health’s Bureau of EMS has tasked us with recruiting 10 EMS agencies to participate in the “EMS on Tour” Day on May 19, 2019.
As part of “EMS on Tour” Day, EMS agencies are asked to go into a popular community location — like a local park, shopping center, or other venue — to reach the greatest number of community members possible. This is a great opportunity to connect with the community you serve, educate them on EMS, and potentially gain new volunteers or employees. In you are interested in participating, please contact Ann Smith by May 7th.
If your agency already has plans to celebrate “EMS on Tour” Day with a community event, please send information about your event to Ann so we can include you in our list to the state.
The state Bureau of EMS is working to create advertising materials that agencies can use to help with their celebrations. It plans to offer banners and social media posts, along with some other content for agencies to use in their communities. These materials are likely to become available in the coming weeks, so be sure to check the Bureau’s website for updates.
