    Default National EMS Memorial Service

    Just wanted to send out my appreciation for making everyone aware of this event happening in Roanoke. This is a service I have been part of since 1994, and I have attended many of the services over Memorial Day weekend. As some additional background on the event, it is a service that began 11 years ago in Roanoke, VA, to answer the need of honoring those EMS providers who have died in the line of duty in years before. Each year, recent line of duty deaths (LODD) are submitted for honoring, and past LODD are researched and also submitted. Most appropriately, the National EMS Memorial Service happens Memorial Day weekend. A very touching service reflects the lives of every provider being remembered, and family & friends pay tribute among a nation of peers. I urge every emergency services member to check out the address to learn more about it. Please post with any questions or comments, and I will gladly respond. Take care, everyone, and stay safe!
