The media is invited to cover events sponsored by the Wake County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) System during National EMS Week, May 16 – 22, 2010.

The anchor event to this year’s celebration will be the annual Cardiac Arrest Save Ceremony on Monday, May 17, 2010, at 6:30 p.m., at the Fletcher Opera Theater, in the Progress Energy Center, 2 E.
