Bermuda’s Emergency Services Celebrate Emergency Medical Services Week

Tuesday 21 May 2019: Bermuda’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS) are highlighting the work they do in the community this week. Join them outside City Hall on Wednesday 22 May from 11am to 2pm.

The event will feature EMS members in Bermuda including EMT’s from Bermuda Hospitals Board and Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service, The Bermuda Police Service, Bermuda Radio (formerly Bermuda Harbour Radio) and volunteers of St. Johns Ambulance Brigade.

Teams will showcase their vehicles and much of their equipment and will be on hand to engage with the public and answer any questions.

It’s a part of EMS Week which is observed in Bermuda and North America. This year the theme is “Beyond the Call” recognising that members of this profession typically go beyond their job descriptions in the interest of saving lives and keeping our community safe.
