Good morning TEMS Regional Partners,


The Tidewater EMS Council has begun accepting nominations to Recognize Excellence in Emergency Medical Services. TEMS is asking you to distribute this information throughout your respective agencies and with your healthcare partners to include: Tele-communicators, Nurses, Operational Medical Directors, Health and Safety staff, and Children’s advocates. Part of our mission in in providing a regional EMS delivery system, is to recognize those individuals, groups and organizations that Strive for Excellence in providing patient care. That starts with the “Call for Help” through “Full Recovery” from illness or injury. It is a “continuum” of healthcare.


Additionally, TEMS will be recognizing our nominees and award winners at the TEMS Regional Awards Ceremony at the 2023 Tidewater Healthcare Education (THE) Expo. THE Expo will be held May 16-21, 2023 with the awards ceremony being held on Saturday, May 20, 2023, 7:00 pm at the Delta Hotels by Marriott-Chesapeake. As a semi-formal dinner, nominees and award winners have the opportunity to invite their families to share in being recognized as some of the BEST in the region. TEMS also believes we have the BEST agencies and providers in the state. The award winners from the TEMS Regional Awards Ceremony are submitted to the Virginia Office of EMS, as are award winners from the other 10 EMS Councils. The Virginia Office of EMS then selects a winner from each of the 13 categories to be recognized as a Governor’s EMS Award winner! The Governor’s Award winners are recognized at a dinner during the Virginia EMS Symposium held in Norfolk, VA in November.


Lastly, the Tidewater EMS Council also recognizes lifetime achievement:
