National EMS Week Flag Raising 2023
May 23 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm
The City of Jersey City, Mayor Steven Fulop, the Municipal Council Office and the Office of Cultural Affairs are immensely proud of these brave members of Jersey City Medical Center Emergency Medical Services and honored to celebrate Emergency Medical Services Week from May 16th through May 22nd with the the annual flag raising ceremony held on Tuesday, May 23, 2023
During the Emergency Medical Services Week, we honor all of the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Providers who play such a critical role in our city and across the country for their tenacity and lifesaving skills. These incredible professionals respond to daily calls for urgent assistance and work tirelessly to serve their communities. Whether celebrated with a company cookout or a catered lunch; an open house, an awards ceremony or even a quiet reflection about what it means to be an EMS practitioner, EMS Week is the perfect time to recognize EMS and all that its practitioners do for our nation.
Most recently, they have made significant contributions and immeasurable sacrifices during our Nation’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, one of the most daunting and demanding challenges the country has ever faced. A far-reaching and devastating scope of the coronavirus pandemic has increased the demands on our Nation’s EMS professionals, including those from our military service branches. These heroes have courageously risen to the challenge. They remain undeterred in their efforts to deliver critical assistance to their fellow Americans.
The City of Jersey City urge all city residents to join in recognizing the significant contributions of these heroic men and women for their efforts to deliver lifesaving care and compassion, and we acknowledge that our city and the whole world is a safer and healthier place because of their work.
Members of the EMS and Jersey City Medical Center along with The Mayor’s Office representatives and Councilman Yousef Saleh.
