NHTSA’s Office of EMS
Thanks You for Making Your Communities Healthier

The Office of EMS (OEMS) at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is honoring our country’s EMS clinicians during EMS Week. Thank you for delivering high-quality, compassionate care to your patients on our roadways and in homes, schools and businesses across the country. We celebrate your commitment to your profession and to the safety and health of your communities.

Please download this customizable certificate of recognition from the Office of EMS to help you recognize your team this week. And, watch or share this special thank you message from Gam Wijetunge, Office of EMS Director and active volunteer paramedic.

Today is EMS Education day. NHTSA remains committed to supporting the education of the EMS workforce, a key factor in recruitment and retention of capable clinicians. Learn more about NHTSA’s efforts in education: from the refresh of the EMS Education Standards in 2020, to the upcoming development of the EMS Education Agenda 2050, to collaboration with our partners at the Federal Highway Administration to educate clinicians about Traffic Incident Management to reduce secondary crashes.
