Whereas, AAA members play a key role in our nation’s homeland security as a first responder, and

Whereas, the members of the American Ambulance Association work closely with their community’s local emergency response services such as fire and rescue, hospitals, public health, long-term care and other community-based health care organizations, and

Whereas, the nation’s Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians are highly trained health care professionals on the front line everyday participating in the pre-hospital safety net for people all across America, therefore,
