National EMS Museum

The National EMS Museum is dedicated to preserving and commemorating the history of the Emergency Medical Services in the United States. By collecting historic equipment, books and tools of the trade we are able to showcase how EMS has developed over the last 150 years, from battlefield ambulance wagons to the all inclusive Mobile Response Units. Through the study of the past we inspire EMS practitioners to develop new tools and procedures to provide better and more effective emergency care to our patients and communities.

Please explore our virtual museum at your leisure. Go to our Collections Page to start your visit today!  If you get lost in one of our pages simply head back to the top of the page and click Collections, that will take you back to the main page for another adventure.  Enjoy!
