Routes For The 2011 East Coast Ride Announced

The Board of Directors of the National EMS Memorial Bike Ride, Inc.,–“Muddy Angels”–have announced the routes for the 2011 East Coast ride to take place during EMS Week, May 14-21.

The vision of the National EMS Memorial Bike Ride is to see recognition of EMS as a profession, reduce debilitating injuries and LODD in EMS, and establish a national EMS accountability system. It is hoped that the bike ride will focus attention on the accomplishments of all EMS personnel, and educate the community at large about the need for improved safety standards, injury prevention, disability tracking and death benefits for EMS personnel and their families.

Participation can be as a cyclist or as support personnel. The EMS Memorial Bike Ride supports the National EMS Memorial Service in honoring our fallen brethren in EMS.
