CFSI ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE EXCELLENCE IN FIRE SERVICE-BASED EMS AWARDS:
– CFSI and Masimo Seeking to Recognize Innovations in Emergency Medical Services –

(WASHINGTON, DC) – The Congressional Fire Services Institute (CFSI) is accepting applications for the CFSI/Masimo Excellence in Fire Service-Based EMS Awards. The presentation of the 2017 awards will take place April 6, 2017, at the 29th Annual National Fire and Emergency Services Dinner in Washington, DC.

Established in 2010, the Excellence in Fire Service-Based EMS Awards honor fire departments for innovations and improvements in the delivery of prehospital emergency medical care. The actions taken by these departments should have a positive impact on firefighter and paramedic safety, resource deployment, and/or enhanced fire service-based EMS services. The awards recognize departments in two separate categories: career and volunteer & combination.

“We are looking for departments that are forward-thinking in their approach to EMS – departments that are developing and instituting change to adapt to the growing demand for prehospital emergency medical care,” said CFSI Executive Director Bill Webb. “Masimo shares this vision as a manufacturer of innovative EMS equipment, which is why CFSI is proud to have them as a co-sponsor of this awards program.”
