Don't forget to get gifts for your paramedics, EMT's, first responders, and dispatchers to show your appreciation for their hard work. Those in the EMS field, such as Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT's), paramedics, first responders, and emergency dispatchers work everyday with very little appreciation or thanks from the public, when, in fact, they save lives every day. These dedicated individuals even make a difference during many of their routine, non-emergency calls that make up the bulk of their day to day work. Life-saving maneuvers are not always used each day by an individual paramedic, EMT, or first responder, however, the compassion and caring that they show to their patients and the help that they provide each day can be tiresome to these professionals. We should reward them with this week by saying "thank you" with gifts. Local businesses can give out premium promotional items such as bags, coolers, and other useful items to show their thanks for the dedicated service these EMS workers provide for the community. Future EMS Week dates will be May 19-25, 2019 and May 17-23, 2020.

Many of these products have been chosen personally by the owner of Perfect Imprints who is a former Paramedic. With an average shift time of 12 hours, EMS personnel need to be prepared for anything. That’s why we have included items such as the Leatherman Super Tool 300 which includes 19 tools in one, the 20 Oz. Himalayan Tumbler that will keep their drinks hot and cold much longer than a regular cup, and the Dash Compu-Backpack designed to hold personal items they may need during those long 12 hour shifts. Remember to stop and say thank you to an EMS team member in your community for sacrifices they make to help us in our greatest times of need.
