National EMS Memorial finds a home

The Gazette of Colorado Springs reports that the National EMS Memorial's Tree of Life has found a home in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The Tree of Life was housed at the To the Rescue Museum in Roanoke, Virginia until closing recently. A committee was formed to determine the new location. For those unfamiliar, each EMS provider who has died in the line of duty is memorialized in a leaf on the Tree of Life. A memorial service is held each May when provider's names are added to the memorial.

I have posted previously about the Muddy Angels who hold a fundraising bike ride to the service each year. A wonderfully noble effort to bring attention (and funds) to this important project.
