National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week
EMC celebrated National EMS week (May 21-31, 2014) with events throughout the province. Each year, EHS paramedics, nurses, medical communications officers and support employees are busy in their communities educating Nova Scotians about the EMS system and sharing important health and wellness and public safety messages.
EMS week is an important opportunity to celebrate and recognize the dedicated emergency medical service professionals and support employees across the province.
Here are some highlights from this year:
New Glasgow - West Side Sobeys
Halifax - Hands-only CPR by the Sea
