Over thirty emergency vehicles proved EMS is more than a job; it’s a calling in Little Rock, Arkansas on May 23rd. The tenth annual parade of lights saw EMS units from through out the state, starting from War Memorial Stadium and ending at the State Capitol. At the State Capitol, participants were treated to a helicopter flyby on the steps prior to going into the Capitol Rotunda. In the Rotunda Governor Mike Beebe presented the proclamation of National EMS week. Also the inauguration of the first five Arkansas Hall of Fame inductees took place. Afterwards participants met at the section of EMS for food, fun, and door prizes. What a great way to celebrate Arkansas EMS! We also would like to recognize the following companies that joined in our annual Parade of Lights for the first time.
- Faulkner County Emergency Squad
- Des Arc Ambulance Service
- Flippin Fire Department
