These awards are the highest honor caregivers and other EMS professionals can receive. Each one represents an incredible story of service and dedication in every area of the EMS industry, and is selected by their peers in an extensive nomination process.

AMR President Bill Sanger said, "In a field where heroism and total commitment is an everyday occurrence, EMS professionals often go unrecognized.
