2021 Oregon EMS Award Nomination

***UPDATE - May 12, 2020***
The Oregon Health Authority has made the decision to pause the 2019-2020 awards banquet. This is seperate from the Oregon EMS Conference which is still scheduled to take place in Redmond, Oregon this year. We will accept nominations for 2019-2021.Each year, many people contribute and perform notable acts in Oregon's EMS system.  These acts include service to the EMS system through leadership, participation in system development, improvement, and through exceptional performance of prehospital care duties. Unfortunately, these good acts and deeds frequently go unrecognized.

This program provides a mechanism through which extraordinary acts and meritorious service in the Oregon EMS system can be recognized. Various categories of awards are described below. The eligibility and award criteria are explained for each category of award.

The community, EMS providers, supervisors, and managers are encouraged to be alert to the opportunity to recognize outstanding acts or performances by nominating the responsible individual or agency for an award in the appropriate type and category.  If selected, the nominator sponsors the recipient's banquet cost. Banquet tickets are included with the Oregon EMS Conference registration and scholarships for the Oregon EMS Conference are available each year.
For Incident based awards:
The incident or event leading to a nomination must have occurred between the dates of June 1, 2019, through May 31, 2021, to qualify
For a nomination to be considered for presentation at the annual Oregon EMS Awards Ceremony, the Oregon Emergency Medical Services & Trauma Systems section must receive a nomination no later than June 1 of the current year.  

 Award recipients will be honored at the annual Oregon EMS Conference's banquet held September of each year.
