EMS Week


We are excited to announce events to celebrate EMS week.

This year, EMS week is May 21-27. The goal of EMS Week is to bring together local communities and medical personnel to encourage community safety and preparedness as well as to honor the dedication of those who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services of medicine’s “front line.”

In addition to the coloring contest and Open House, we will also be offering community CPR Classes. These classes will be free of charge and open to everyone. However, participants will need to register ahead of time, as class sizes are limited. If there is enough interest, we will host additional classes to ensure everyone has access to this life-saving training. There is no age limit, though it typically directed toward people ages 8 and up.

Information about the Open House updated soon. The Ambulance will be on the WRCO Morning Show on Friday, May 4th, and Wednesday, May 17th at 9:10am.

CPR Classes

The classes will be held on Tuesday May 23rd at 6pm at Ithaca School and Thursday May 25th at 6pm at the Richland Center Community Center. More information will be posted here or call the office at 647-6474. – CPR Classes Flyer

Coloring Contest

The Richland County Ambulance Association is inviting students to take part in an art contest to observe EMS Week. Students are encouraged to use the provided age-appropriate images for 4K-2nd grade and 3rd-5th grade, with middle and high school students being afforded the opportunity to create their own.
