Emergency Medical Tech

EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIAN     2015-2016

The goal of the EMT Award Program is to recognize those deserving individuals whose performance of their duties distinguishes them from all others. This honor is awarded to an individual, or team*, that actively gives emergency medical services, provides rescue service or civil disaster assistance as a member of any public or volunteer company organized to give emergency medical care, provide rescue and civil disaster assistance to our nation’s citizens.

Required Documents:

  1. Nomination letter containing the nominee’s name, title, address, telephone and identifying the award for which the individual should be considered.
  2. One page resume of the nominee’s overall background or team background.
  3. One page resume of the nominee’s background in their field or team background.
  4. One page listing of the nominee’s or team accomplishments and awards.
  5. Photograph (preferably a head shot) of the candidate (3×5 or 5×7). Team nominations should include a group photo.

Every community certainly has at least one “Outstanding Emergency Medical Technician” who should be recognized. Post Commanders are urged to direct their appointed Safety Chairman, or Special Chairman, to canvass their local EMS to find nominees to submit as “Outstanding Emergency Medical Technician.” The Post Chairman is responsible for coordinating the program and selecting the Post’s most worthy candidate or team. This nominee will then be submitted to the District Chairman for district selection and submission to department. The District will submit only ONE winner to the Department Chairman for final selection with the report form completed for all participating posts.

The nominee selected as the department’s “Outstanding Emergency Medical Technician” will receive one plaque for their individual keeping and one to be presented at their place of business or work or where they desire to have the award presented to them. A team that is selected as our “Outstanding Emergency Medical Technician” will receive two plaques, both to be presented at their place of business or work or where they desire to have the award presented to them. The Department Chair, one of the State Officers, or the District Commander will present the awards. This program can help post and district leadership qualify for All-State honors. Don’t forget to have the cover sheets filled out with all information on sheet and photograph to be sent with cover sheet.

*NOTE: The program changed several years ago, allowing a team to be nominated, however, since the program is no longer a national program, the department will submit the highest scoring individual to be recognized as the Department of Kansas Emergency Medical Technician of the year and receive a citation stating such, from the National Headquarters.

Program deadlines:       Delivered to SMVFW Post – December 2, 2015
