If your agency suffers a fatality, you may use our Submission Form to provide the information required for posting of a notice on this page. A Notice of EMS Fatality will be posted to this page and the Service mailing list as soon as the submission is verified.

If for some reason you can not use this form, please contact Kevin Agard.

The posting of a Notice of EMS Fatality is for notification purposes only. It is based upon information submitted to the National EMS Memorial Service regarding the death of an EMS provider which may be in the Line of Duty but which has not yet been fully investigated by us.

The posting of a Notice of EMS Fatality does not indicate acceptance to the National EMS Memorial Service. Inclusion in the National EMS Memorial Service requires that a nominee meet the NEMSMS Criteria, a careful review of information on the Nomination Form and from all other sources, and an affirmative vote of the National EMS Memorial Service Board of Directors.
