H.R. 2274 — Bill to establish a National Emergency Medical Services Memorial in Washington DC

Congressman Stephen F. Lynch has introduced H.R. 2274, a bill to establish a national EMS memorial. The legislation would create a National Emergency Medical Services Memorial Foundation, which will design and build a memorial in Washington, DC to honor those EMS members lost in the line of duty.

Every year, approximately 850,000 EMS providers answer more than 30 million calls and help roughly 22 million patients. To date, more than 600 of them have died in the line of duty.
