Belz Factory Outlet World – St. Augustine Honors Emergency Medical Services Professionals with EMS Week Event


WHAT:

In celebration of EMS Week, Belz Factory Outlet World St. Augustine is hosting an event to honor Northeast Florida EMS agencies and bring awareness of the services they offer to the public.

The First Coast Emergency Medical Services Advisory Council, which comprises all Northeast Florida county EMS agencies, will be on hand to display two "Life Flight" helicopters and several fire trucks and ambulances in the front mall parking lot. Representatives from various agencies will also be available to answer questions and to educate the public about how and when to utilize services.

EMS Week, May 19th through May 25th, began in 1974 when President Gerald Ford signed an official proclamation to recognize the accomplishments of the men and women who dedicate themselves to saving the lives of others. National activities for EMS Week 2002 will focus on the theme "Help is Only a Heartbeat Away."
