May 17 to 23 is National Emergency Medical Services Week!
This week we celebrate the dedicated service of the men and women who provide lifesaving emergency care in our tribal communities. People's lives often depend on the quick thinking and competent care of emergency medical technicians and paramedics. This week is a great opportunity to thank the many dedicated emergency response professionals who provide critical services throughout Indian Country, often in remote areas and under harsh conditions.
