Annual award recognizes leading EMS innovators

EMS 10


Recognizing Leading EMS Innovators of 2013

EMS has changed drastically over the years, with those changes being driven by innovations from individuals looking to improve clinical or operational practice. No area has escaped their creativity as they worked to bring EMS care to a higher level. As a result the service now provides better care to more people in more ways than ever imagined.

This process of innovation continues today, in agencies large and small, public and private, from basic EMTs to medical directors. As the leader in spreading the best knowledge in EMS practice, JEMS, with support from Physio-Control, Inc., is proud to recognize the top 10 innovators in EMS who drove the EMS practice forward in 2013. Each innovator will be recognized as one of the EMS 10: Innovators in EMS 2013.

The sixth annual EMS 10 winners will receive recognition at the 2014 EMS Today Conference & Exposition in Washington, D.C., in February. They will receive complimentary registration to attend the EMS Today Conference & Exposition and an invitation to attend a special awards dinner with past winners.
