The National EMS Memorial Foundation is a non-profit organization to honor the commitment, service, and sacrifice of our nation’s EMS providers that have died in the line of duty and those who continue to serve. The foundation also endeavors to establish a physical national memorial in our Nation’s capital or surrounding area, similar to those already established for police and fire. In addition to this mission, NEMSMF holds several events to honor our brothers and sisters who have made the ultimate sacrifice, and died in the line of duty.
