Despite the COVID 19 crisis postponing Site Selection regulatory hearings for the National EMS Memorial, the National EMS Memorial Foundation continues to make progress. Under its authorization within P.L. 115-275, the National EMS Memorial Foundation will establish the National EMS Memorial in Washington, DC, recognizing the commitment, service and sacrifice of our nation’s EMS providers.

With the conceptual design of the Memorial fast approaching as part of the Site Selection process, the National EMS Memorial Foundation has developed a digital process to allow the entire EMS community and the public to convey their understanding of the Commitment, Service, and Sacrifice of the nation’s Emergency Medical Services system. These submissions will allow the designers to access the unique thoughts and perspectives of the entire EMS community as the motivation for the design process. These different perspectives, from across every sector of EMS, will come together within the Memorial itself to provide its strength.

About the Foundation — The sole purpose of the National EMS Memorial Foundation is to design, build and maintain a permanent EMS memorial in Washington, DC or its environs, to honor and recognize the Commitment, Service, and Sacrifice of the men and women of EMS across our nation, who have made the ultimate sacrifice and for those who continue to serve.
