The 2019 National EMS Memorial Service will be held on Saturday May 18, 2019 at the Gaylord Resort and Conference Center. We will be honoring 26 EMS providers during this years’ service.
Each year we offer the “Adopt-a-Family” program. This program financially supports the families of those who have experienced a Line of Duty Death. If you, your agency or business would like to support this program, please send a check made payable to the NATIONAL EMS MEMORIAL SERVICE, care of the VAVRS office at P.O. Box 279, Oilville, VA 23129. Cost of sponsoring a family is $350 and we encourage more if you are able to do so.
