Across the nation, Emergency Medical Services are facing many challenges that must be acknowledged and addressed, but prominent among these is the fragmented professional identity. EMS professionals often grapple with associating themselves with the larger EMS profession, choosing instead to identify with specialized roles within the industry or their employer’s profile: Private EMS provider, firefighter-EMT or firefighter-medic, flight-medic, community paramedic, etc. Charting the path towards the future necessitates all EMS professionals also unify at a macro level as EMS professionals. Perhaps the simple phrase "We Are EMS" balances the varied employers and work environments with a shared commitment, resilience, and passion that binds all EMS professionals, regardless of their specialized roles.
