May 15-21, 2022, is the 47th annual National Emergency Medical Services Week. This year's theme is "EMS: Rising to the Challenge". National EMS Week brings together local communities and medical personnel to publicize safety and honor the dedication of those who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services of medicine's frontline.
The Lombard Fire Department continues to be one of the busiest in DuPage County and requires all of its firefighters to be EMS certified. In 2021, the Lombard Fire Department responded to 7,420 calls for service. Of those calls, 5,684 were EMS runs.
Join us in thanking our Lombard Firefighters/Paramedics for all they do to care for and protect our community!
