This is the third year of the EMS 10 Innovators in EMS program, jointly sponsored by Physio-Control and JEMS. The program has a simple mission but powerful objective: Find some of the best innovators in the EMS industry and alert the EMS community to their achievements of the previous year to help providers and patients in the future.

The 10 EMS Innovators selected are not the only great innovators in our business, but our selection committee judged their hard work, dedication and selfless efforts in 2010 to be best of the candidates submitted by their peers this year.

We profile each honoree in this special supplement to JEMS to not only inform and educate you on their innovative work in EMS, but to encourage you to ride on the wave of their innovations, use them to better develop your EMS system and inspire you and your colleagues to think outside the box, take some calculated risks and innovate in an area of EMS that you feel could make a difference for patients, EMS systems or your prehospital colleagues.
