Why Order EMS coins?
Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians working on Emergency Medical Squads must cope with high stress every day, every run. They never know what they’ll face when they arrive at a call for service. Like police and fire departments, it’s a challenging job that requires dedication and sacrifice that lesser jobs don’t, for the benefit of other citizens.
Maintaining morale and camaraderie in such a high pressure environment can be challenging. One thing that helps is recognition and acknowledgement from leadership that each individual’s contributions are appreciated.
Studies have shown that most people who leave their jobs don’t do so for more money, but because they don’t feel recognized. A small token such as a custom coin can go a long way toward retaining good paramedics and EMTs.
Where did EMS coins originate?
The tradition of custom challenge coins originated in the U.S. military in the early to mid-20th century. The exact beginnings are unknown, but they have long since been accepted as a part of military lore. In recent years, police and fire departments have adopted them as well, as a symbol of membership and shared service. EMS coins likely evolved from the fire service coins.
