In the space of less than a month, the National EMS Museum has launched an EMS History Trivia app and now our inaugural newsletter! Our Traveling Museum continues to generate high interest at both EMS World EXPO and EMS Today.
The Virtual Museum has also had thousands of hits since it arrived in cyberspace in 2007. Our long-range goal continues to be an actual brick and mortar building that will provide displays of historical equipment, ambulances, documents, and oral history from our past. EMS has a rich and wide spread history, but do EMS students coming into our midst have any idea that we even have a history? For the most part, the answer is a resounding “No”!
The National EMS Museum is dedicated to memorializing and commemorating the history of EMS and the individuals and organizations that provide emergency care to the sick and injured.
Join us on our path to a building that will house our ‘history’.
Thanks for your support,
The National EMS Museum is Looking for Your History
The National EMS Museum is trying to preserve the history of EMS. We are looking for stories, memories, photographs, and memorabilia that you may have. Memories can come from field EMT’s, Paramedics, EMS administrators, EMS state officials, vendors, and families of EMS providers.
The EMS Museum wants to preserve your history for posterity. It is as simple as going to www.emsmuseum.org and contacting us. We will accept your donation of stories or other materials and display them on our website and in our traveling museum. Please help us preserve EMS history before it disappears.
Does your unit have a dusty stash of old equipment in a back closet or attic? Have some of your members held onto those obsolete resuscitators and cots, hoping to someday find a worthy home for them? Email us
