Our Story

A day in the life of an EMS provider serves up multiple barriers!  Whether those barriers are financial, time away from the family or something else, maintaining a healthy living may very well be the highest barrier there is. Yes, i’d like to work out, but when? Yes, I’d like to pack a healthy lunch, but i’d rather catch up on my sleep.  Yes, I should eat healthy, but fast food is quicker and fits into my budget better.

Healthy EMS is there to serve the healthy living needs for those who serve the public!    It’s time to create an incentive program which rewards participants and recognizes both baby steps in the healthy lifestyle journey.

The Program
