NEMSMS Moving Honors

(BAKERSFIELD, CA) — Hall Ambulance has been selected by the National EMS Memorial Service (NEMSMS) as the second stop and host site for its Moving Honors program on Saturday, June 24, at 9 a.m.  The ceremony is a cross-country procession marking the countdown to the National EMS Memorial Service Weekend of Honor, recognizing EMS responders who died in the line of duty.

Moving Honors begins the day before in Riverside and will travel 6,500 miles in 28 days before arriving in Arlington, VA, for the National EMS Weekend of Honor July 21 -23.

The Bakersfield event will feature the Moving Honors ambulance, a replica of the Tree of Life with leaves containing the names of the 59 fallen EMS workers being honored this year, and artwork of the National EMS Memorial.  Their names will be read aloud, followed by a moment of silence.  Additional ceremony details are being finalized and will be announced later this week, including an emergency vehicle procession after the ceremony, escorting the Moving Honors ambulance out of town as it heads to its next stop in Las Vegas for the American Ambulance Association Annual Conference.

The one-hour event will take place at Hall Ambulance’s downtown Bakersfield campus, in front of the Hall Ambulance mural at 21st and N Streets.

The event is free, and EMS and public safety workers (past and present) and the community are invited to attend.
