In 1996, the American Ambulance Association started the Stars of Life program to celebrate and recognize the contributions of air and ground ambulance professionals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in service to their communities or the EMS profession. Each year AMR has run a concurrent internal nomination and selection process to find our Stars of Life to send to the AAA event in Washington DC.
Beginning with the 2020 Celebration, we will have 34 Stars, from across the Global Medical Response family of companies. In addition to the 24 from our ground and fire operations, we will be adding two Stars each from our air companies: Air Evac Lifeteam, AirMed International, Guardian Flight, Med-Trans and REACH Air Medical Services.
Nominations accepted Jan. 22 - Feb. 9
