May 21, 2013 - To honor EMTs, paramedics and first responders, Mayor Rogero and Mayor Burchett presented a joint proclamation Tuesday declaring May 19-25 as "EMS Week" in Knoxville and Knox County.

"National Emergency Services Week provides a perfect opportunity to recognize our emergency medical providers for the important work they do," said Mayor Rogero. "Whether it is a career or a volunteer effort, emergency medical service providers spend thousands of hours each year preparing to be ready for any emergency."

National EMS Week was established in 1974 by the American College of Emergency Physicians to show its appreciation for those who provide safe and efficient pre-hospital care in emergencies.
