Due to the untimely death of a fellow Medic, MEMS Honor Guard was established in 2002 with the mission to “Honor our Fallen.” Recognizing the need throughout our state, MEMS began a new mission to ensure all EMS providers in Arkansas had access to an Honor Guard in time of need.
With the cornerstones of “Trust & Respect,” MEMS Honor Guard members make the following pledge; “We will work to ensure that our fellow EMS Professionals who have either died in the line of duty or who have died after a lifetime of serving their communities are honored and remembered. In addition to this, we will provide comfort and support to the families of these Professionals and ensure that their sacrifices are always remembered.
Honor Guard Oath
"We stand before you, to honor, to cherish, to remember, and to salute, with overwhelming pride for you, my comrade I will."
