2016-2017 Awards!

We ask that you please consider submitting nominations for the 2016-2017 Regional and New York State Department of Health Bureau of EMS (NYS DOH BEMS) annual awards.

Each year the REMSCO solicits nominations in several categories and then submits the regional winners to the BEMS for consideration for the state award. This year, we will honor and celebrate our regional award winners with a ceremony on Wednesday, May 17th at 9:30AM in Lake Placid, NY.

If you are interested in nominating an individual or agency, please visit to access an awards application. Please note that essays may not exceed 1,000 words and all submissions must be in an electronic format using a 12-point Times New Roman font; double-spaced with 1-inch margins. Please be sure to carefully read category descriptions and general instructions before submitting. Each application for an award will only be considered in one category. Please note we must receive all applications no later than COB on March 31, 2017.
