Regional Award

"To honor outstanding achievement in emergency medical services."

The Tidewater Emergency Medical Services Council, Inc. requests nominations for the annual regional EMS recognition awards program.


About the Awards

The purpose of the regional EMS awards program is to recognize outstanding service and contributions to the local, regional or statewide EMS system. Eleven categories, plus an additional high school scholarship award, recognize EMS field providers, EMS instructors, EMS agencies, EMS agency administrators, public safety communications officers, emergency nurses, operational medical directors, EMS health and safety programs, EMS for children programs, emergency preparedness and response and overall excellence in EMS.

Nominations

Any person may submit a nomination for any award(s). The person making the nomination should have knowledge of the nominee's qualifications for the specific award category.  A nominee's actions need not be extraordinary…consistent and high quality work on a daily basis is often deserving of special recognition.  Many local EMS agencies provide annual awards, and agency leaders should nominate those individuals for regional awards. The nominee must have current licensure or certification in the category in which he or she has been nominated. Including a brief resume and up to three support items such as letters of support, news articles or other supporting documents are encouraged. At least one letter of support is required from someone other than the person placing the nomination. Videotapes, audiotapes and phone calls will be considered by the awards committee. Facsimiles will not be accepted. For more information, call the Tidewater EMS Council, 757-963-0632 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Selection Process

An awards selection committee appointed by the Tidewater EMS Council’s Board of Directors will select award recipients. Members of the awards committee are not eligible to receive an award. The Criteria and Eligibility information will be used to evaluate nominations for each of the award categories. Persons submitting nominations are urged to consider these criteria. The selection committee or staff may correspond directly with nominees in order to obtain additional eligibility and supporting information. The awards committee reviews the nominations and supporting documentation and selects award recipients in all categories. The selection committee's decisions are final. All nominees will receive certificates of recognition; award recipients will receive a special engraved award and individual awardees will also receive an award ribbon. Regional award recipients will be forwarded as Virginia EMS award nominees in the corresponding categories.

Governor’s EMS Awards

Only regional winners will be judged at the state level in the Governor’s EMS Awards program.

The State EMS Advisory Board’s EMS Awards Selection Committee will review and recommend Governor's award winners from among the first place winners in each of the eleven regional EMS councils' competition. The state committee will forward its recommendations to the Governor for final selection and presentation during the annual EMS symposium in November.

An EMS Advisory Board Merit Award may be given to an exceptionally outstanding nominee who did not meet all of the eligibility requirements for the Governor’s Award, but deserved special recognition. If none of the applicants in a category meets the awards criteria, the Committee can nominate someone. If the Committee feels a nominee best fits another category, it may contact the nominator or Regional EMS Council to discuss making this change.
