NYS Bureau of EMS – EMS Week 2021 ~ Nominations for EMS Team/Provider Recognition are now open!

Submission for EMS Week Award Nominations are NOW OPEN!  Please share this communication with other EMS organizations!

Thank You!  That is what the New York State Bureau of Emergency Medical Services would like to say to all our EMS Providers during EMS Week 2021.

EMS Week is just a few weeks away and we would like your help again this year recognizing those EMS providers who have gone above and beyond.

Last year we had almost 100 EMS Week awards issued after a review of all the nominations that were received.

We are looking for your help to recognize outstanding NYS EMS Providers during EMS Week 2021 for the work they have done during this past year!


The Bureau, for the second year, is offering EMS organizations the opportunity to directly nominate a team or provider to be recognized during EMS Week for their contributions to Emergency Medical Services.

Below is a submission form where EMS agencies can make a nomination.

  • GOOD STANDING: Nominated individuals or team members must be in good standing with the Department of Health

EMS Week 2021 ~ Nominations for EMS Team / Provider Recognition | Survey Builder (ny.gov)

The nominations will remain open during EMS Week until we have met our maximum number, so we encourage agencies to submit early, but remember, you can only submit once.


Nominations should only take a few minutes to submit and can be done from a computer or smartphone device.

Thank you to every NYS EMS Provider, we really appreciate all the work you are doing every day and especially during these very challenging times.

Happy EMS Week!
