Regional Award Overview
regional award
Each year, Virginia's eleven (11) Regional EMS Councils recognize excellence in various areas of prehospital medical care with the presentation of individual and organizational achievement awards.  The Regional Councils conduct Regional EMS Awards programs, hold recognition ceremonies and publicize the regional winners in their communities.  This statewide regional recognition honors the exceptional contributions that members of Virginia's EMS system make in their communities and help them become more visible to the people they serve. Regional first place winners will be sent by the Regional EMS Councils to the State EMS Advisory Board to compete at the state level in the Governor's EMS Awards.

Governor's EMS Awards Program

Recipients of the Governor's EMS Awards will be announced and presented a certificate signed by the Governor and an awards trophy at the Virginia EMS Awards Banquet during the Annual Virginia EMS Symposium.
