Emergency Medical Service Week May 14-21
The Orange County Health Care Agency's Emergency Medical Services plan a week of public information and outreach about the many vital emergency services and trainings that are available throughout Orange County. Most EMS Week events are open to the public and focus on various injury prevention topics and education in various ways to keep ourselves and our families safe from harm. EMS Week will culminate in an opportunity to honor and celebrate Orange County's Emergency Services personnel at a Family Day tailgate celebration at Angel Stadium of Anaheim before the Saturday, May 27, 2006 Angel vs Baltimore Orioles game.
EMS Week is a partnership between the Orange County Health Care Agency's Emergency Medical Services and the Orange County Fire Chiefs Association, the Orange County Fire Authority, Orange Fire Department, Anaheim Fire Department, Orange County Sheriff's Department, the American Red Cross-Orange County Chapter, Garden Grove Police Department, Orange County SAFE KIDS and the Ambulance Association of Orange County.
