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 personalor professional sacrifice.
The James O. Page/ JEMS Leadership Award is not a single achievement award, but rather one that recognizes great personal 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.
