The 2021 National EMS Memorial Service and Weekend of Honor, originally scheduled for May has been moved to July 23-25, 2021 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City at Reagan National Airport, Arlington, Virginia.
The ceremonies will pay tribute to the past two year’s honorees due to the cancellation of the 2020 events in response to the pandemic, according to the National EMS Memorial Bike Ride (NEMSMBR), the National EMS Memorial Foundation (NEMSMF) and the National EMS Memorial Service (NEMSMS).
The weekend includes a series of events to honor all air and ground emergency medical services (EMS) providers who serve in the U.S., while focusing on those who become ill or injured related to their duty. It culminates with a formal service to specifically honor those who have died in the line-of-duty.
The list of honorees and information on the weekend’s events including the National EMS Moment of Silence will be posted to the NEMSMS website at www.national-ems-memorial.org in the coming weeks.
