Each year, National EMS Week recognizes and thanks EMS clinicians for their life-saving work on the frontlines of our health care system.

Special theme days of EMS Week help to structure the week’s activities. Wednesday is set aside for EMS for Children, or "EMSC" Day. EMSC Day is an annual opportunity to thank EMS clinicians for their dedication to meeting children's unique health needs and to spotlight the work of the federal EMSC Program, now in its 40th year.
