Do you know someone worth recognizing?


 
 

| Thursday, May 1, 2014


The James O. Page/JEMS Award encourages EMS personnel and EMS agencies to deliver quality service, gain the respect of their colleagues in the field of EMS, and fight to do what’s in the best interest of patient care and EMS in their community.

The award recognizes an individual (or organization) who exhibits the drive and tenacious effort to resolve important EMS issues or bring about positive change in an EMS system, often at great personal or professional sacrifice.

The James O. Page/ JEMS Leadership Award is not a single achievement award, but rather one that recognizes great personnel or agency effort to achieve goals.

Nominees shall fit one or more of the following categories:

  • Successfully fought a wrongful decision or action by an administrator, state or federal EMS agency, legislative body or employer.
  • Championed the development or enactment of state, federal or local legislation that resulted in streamlined regulation, improved EMS delivery, additional funding or an enhanced work environment for EMS personnel.
     
  • Took action that resulted in EMS system design or operational changes that significantly improved the delivery of patient care in a defined geographic area, or successfully replaced a poor-performing ambulance or paramedic system with a system that now delivers significantly improved care, such as through reduced response times, higher level of training, community education programs and tighter medical control. (Documentation to be provided relative to each positive and negative aspect.)
  • Exhibits a documented/proven track record in leading organizations or individuals in the development and delivery of high quality EMS programs. This is the person who turns everything they touch into gold, whether it be the implementation of a new and innovative educational program, EMS system expansion or recruitment and retention program.


Eligibility: This award is open to an individual OR an agency who has championed a cause or righted an EMS wrong. Past winners are not eligible to participate.

Selection process: Representatives from a panel of EMS experts will judge the entrants.

Award details: Award to be presented at EMS Today, February 2015. The winner (individual or a service representative) will receive airfare, registration and hotel accommodations to attend the EMS Today Conference and Exposition in the year of the award presentation and receive their $1,000 award.
