Annually the New York State Department of Health, Bureau of Emergency Medical Services, presents awards in several categories. These awards are presented at the New York State EMS Conference, Vital Signs each year.
Applications for individual or team achievement awards shall be based on a pattern of activities that have culminated in a significant improvement of Emergency Medical Services in the community. Applications for individual or team heroism shall be based on a single unusual event that was beyond ordinary duty. All nominees, in both achievement and heroism categories, must be affiliated with a NYS EMS agency. Agencies must possess a current and valid ID code as an ambulance service or first response service. Individuals must be credentialed to practice within NY State.
