Celebrating Ambulances this week @ NEMSM

This week on Social we’re celebrating Ambulances

We’re wanting to know what you think the most innovative change in ambulance design or care has been over the last 300 years. Contribute to the conversation on Facebook or Instagram this week.

Our August 16th program with Brian LaCroix is going to be rescheduled for the fall. Please keep an eye to our social pages and emails for further updates. We apologize for the last-minute notice and hope you can join us for the program later this year!

And a quick membership update: 
As of October 1, 2023 our $20 individual membership will become the Virtual NEMSM Membership!

New and renewing members at this level will get a digital membership card and a virtual subscription to the EMS Historian; along with all the same news and events invites.

If you’d like to receive a physical card and print copy of EMS Historian consider upgrading to the Family Membership before October 1 and save $10 on your new membership using the code Family10 at checkout.

A big thank you to all our members and supporters for a great summer at NEMSM – we have been focused on some new material for the virtual museum and the EMS Historian is nearing completing and ready for our designer.  Thank you for making it so easy for us to share more EMS stories than ever before!
