Adirondack - Appalachian Regional Emergency Medical Services Council
Welcome to our Web Site - Recognize the Blue and White Symbol?
It’s the Star of Life, the symbol of Emergency Medical Services
(EMS). In the center is the Staff of Asclepius, the mythological Greek god
of medicine. The "points" of the Star (beginning at twelve o’clock) represent
the functions of EMS – Detection, Reporting, Response, On-Scene Care, Care
in Transit, and Transfer to Definitive Care. The rest of the AAREMS logo
depicts the boundaries and names of the counties we serve in New York State.
