This year, in celebration of EMS Week, Dare County EMS is holding a children’s coloring contest and a teen/adult poster contest.

Children coloring pages may be downloaded from darenc.com/departments/ems or children may create their own drawing if they prefer. For interested teens and adults, Dare County EMS will also host a poster contest of their own design considering EMS Week’s 2021 theme “This is EMS: Caring for Our Communities.” Posters need to reflect this theme and also illustrate Dare EMS caring for the Outer Banks community. Place your name, age and contact information on the back of your coloring page or poster.

Coloring pages and poster designs can be submitted to EMS Station 1 in Kill Devil Hills, 1632 N. Croatan Highway; EMS Station 2 in Manteo, 515 Bowsertown Road or EMS Station 3 in Frisco 50346 N.C. Highway 12 by Saturday, May 22, 2021 for a chance to win a prize.

Dare County also produced a video with more information about EMS Week. The video features Dare County EMS Director Jennie Collins, who shares information about her department’s duties as they serve on the front lines of the Outer Banks community:
