The much-anticipated JEMS Games will kick-off with a preliminary competition on Thursday, February 25 where EMS teams from across the globe will compete on a course that includes many different EMS related obstacles to test their skills. Only three teams will move onto the final competition, which will be held the evening of Friday, February 26. This competition is a fast-paced simulation of an EMS call in which the teams are unaware of the scenario until they arrive to compete.
