Each year, Virginia’s eleven Regional EMS Councils recognize excellence in various areas of prehospital medical care with the presentation of individual and organizational achievement awards. The Regional Councils each conduct Regional EMS Awards programs, hold recognition ceremonies and publicize the regional winners in their communities. This statewide regional recognition honors the exceptional contributions that members of Virginia’s EMS system make in their communities and across the state and nation.
Last year the ODEMSA Region had nominations for nearly every category, and all regional winners advanced to the Governor’s EMS Awards presented on Saturday, March 20, 2021! We were so proud that we had three individuals that won the Governor’s EMS Awards for their categories, with one of the winners taking home a total of $6,000 in scholarships.
Help us to recognize those that deserve to receive one of these prestigious awards!
