The Oklahoma Ambulance Association is pleased to be a sponsor of this year's National EMS Memorial Service. The mission of the National EMS Memorial Service is to honor and remember those men and women of America's Emergency Medical Services who have given their lives in the line of duty, and to recognize the sacrifice they have made in service to their communities and their fellow man. Each year, hundreds of family members, friends, coworkers, EMS and political leaders, and colleagues from EMS agencies from around the nation gather together to remember our honorees. The National EMS Memorial is not a single event but rather a weekend of events centered around the ceremony known as the National EMS Memorial Service. The 20th Annual National EMS Memorial Service will take place on June 23, 2012 at 6:00 pm MDT (GMT -6:00) at the Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Please take a moment at that time to join us in remembering our fallen colleagues. Visitors are invited to use the The Service and The Memorial links on the web site, www.nemsms.org to learn more about the National EMS Memorial Service and the "Tree of Life". Attached is a copy of the NEMSMS Press Release that names this year's twenty honorees.
