#EMSFORWARD

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is a special and unique profession with many dedicated men and women. These professionals bring compassion, enthusiasm and dependability in often very challenging environments.  The Center for Patient Safety (CPS) is here to support EMS professionals and offer resources as well as tools to improve safety. The EMSForward campaign provides topics to begin the discussion of patient safety. We are an independent not-for-profit organization with a mission to reduce preventable harm.

This campaign is consistent with our mission and focus as we support and promote safety in EMS. Together, we will help move #EMSForward. We invite you to engage in the conversation further on social media and watch for additional content to support the #EMSForward campaign!
