EMS Week is a perfect time to honor those frontline heroes dedicated to providing emergency medicine that saves so many lives every day. We understand that the 2020/2021 EMS Week was probably not a top priority due to the COVID-19 crisis. This year’s campaign will focus on what EMS is and what they do.
The 2022 EMS Week theme: “EMS: Rising to the Challenge.“ This theme is particularly meaningful now, to remind people that every day Chicago’s Paramedics, EMT’s & Firefighters are faced with so many new challenges in their lives and yet they still rise above them all and continue to respond, support, and care for the needs of our communities.
We send our best wishes for the constant safety and good health of all EMS personnel on the front lines who continue to take care of our communities.
The Chicago Fire Department Foundation is honored to sponsor some of the events during this celebration of Service to the residents of Chicago. The Foundation will be providing lunch to those attending the various events all week long.
