According to The Journal of Emergency Medical Services, 45% of all EMS/EMT deaths resulted from highway accidents. Of all the injuries that EMS/EMT experience most are of the hands. According to NCBI, work related injuries and fatalities are higher than the national average for all occupations. This is why we are offering this real benefit. We understand the risks and we understand that families stand behind you. We want to be here not only for you but for them.
