America’s Emergency Medical Services, known as EMS or EMT, are the frontline responders who provide first response medical care to thousands of Americans every day (almost 2 million per year). They respond to emergency incidents - whether large-scale disasters or everyday emergencies day in and day out across the US. This medical support dates at least as far back as the Greek era where chariots were used to remove injured soldiers from the battlefield. The first ambulance services in the US started in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1869, with funeral directors transporting patients to hospitals. And it was much later in the 1920s that the first volunteer rescue ambulances began in America, where medics returning from the First World War put their skills to use. Today, our fine country’s EMS and Paramedic field has grown to include more than 260,000 EMTs and paramedics. Still, though the profession is established, many today face even more challenges (such as Coronavirus) that put their expertise to the test, so they need our support more than ever.
