Colorado Springs, CO - The National EMS Memorial Service today announced the opening of the enrollment period for the 2012 National EMS Memorial Service Honor Guard.

The National EMS Memorial Service Honor Guard is a composite unit of honor guards, color guards and pipes & drum units from across the United States. It is comprised of units from both career and volunteer agencies, from small towns to large urban centers across the country.
