2017 Oregon EMS Award Nomination

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 nomination must have occurred between the dates of June 1, 2016 through May 31, 2017 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.
