May 21-27, 2023, is the 49th annual National EMS Week. This year's theme is EMS: Where Emergency Care Begins. 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 2022, the Lombard Fire Department responded to 8,018 calls for service. Of those calls, 6,272 were EMS runs.
Join us in thanking our Lombard Firefighters/Paramedics for all they do to care for and protect our community!
