Honoring innovation and excellence in paramedicine-driven injury and illness prevention programming.
EMS World, the RedFlash Group, and the California Paramedic Foundation have joined forces to recognize those who have gone above and beyond to prevent injuries and illness. The Nicholas Rosecrans Award is given to those extraordinary individuals and organizations who make significant impact in preventing injury and illness before they even happen---flipping the traditionally reactive 911-paradigm on its head. The award is named after a young boy, Nicholas Rosecrans, whose tragic drowning sparked the creation of EPIC Medics and their subsequent nationally-recognized programming.
