May 21-27 is National EMS Week

May 21-27, 2023 is the 49th annual National EMS Week. In 1974, President Gerald Ford designated EMS Week to celebrate EMS practitioners and the important work they do in our nation’s communities.

We at the Sioux County Public Safety Center thank you for serving all of our communities and rural citizens; we are proud to work alongside all of you.

If you know an EMS responder, please thank them. Take a moment to say a prayer for them for some of the things they see and hear, answering the urgent call, 24/7; and they do it for free. They are the ones who show up on someone’s worst day to make a difference.
