We Can't Believe It's Been 5 Years

Post Your Thoughts and Memories on the Legacy of Jim Page Below in Our Special Forums & Comment Wall

On the fifth anniversary of Jim's death, we want to take this opportunity to reflect on all that he meant to us -- as EMS professionals and as people. He told us to have the courage to do what's right and to accept our mistakes. He made us feel important when he remembered our name after meeting us only once. He showed us how to live to a higher standard and to take care of each other. Each day, we continue to carry out his mission, and we encourage you to share your thoughts and memories as well.

Although I never had the privilege of meeting Jim Page in person I will say that his presence has cast a long tall shadow on my career in E.M.S. Having first picked up a copy of JEMS back in the late 80’s I was always enthralled with stories of Jim fighting for the betterment of EMS whether it was in New Jersey the nations capital or out in California.

While there certainly have been other people in EMS who have made an impact I don’t believe that anyone anywhere has done more to advance the cause than Jim Page did.

Somewhere around our service we have a copy of the history of EMS as narrated by Jim. I think I’m going to pull it out and make our crews watch it.
