Each year, the Texas Department of State Health Services inducts Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel, who lost their lives while on duty, into the Texas EMS Hall of Honor at the Texas EMS Conference in November. Sadly, there will be several inductees into the Hall of Honor in 2023.
The Texas Association of Air Medical Services (TAAMS), a 501(c)(3) organization, assists in removing any financial burden that these bereaved families might have to attend the ceremony, and to award a ‘Childrens’ Scholarship each fall for post high-school education to one of their children. Additionally, a portion of funds raised are used to support the Texas EMS Line of Duty Death (LODD) Task Force programs. TAAMS raises these funds through the Texas EMS Hall of Honor Annual Silent Auction.
This year’s Hall of Honor Silent Auction will be held in the exhibit hall at the Texas EMS Conference in Austin, Texas, on November 19-20, 2023. For this event to be a success, we are seeking your support as a donor of a Silent Auction item(s). By donating an item, you will be making a tax-deductible contribution that will help TAAMS offer financial assistance to these families in need. Additionally, you will benefit from exposure of your company’s name that will be displayed on the silent auction item(s) you donate.
For those of you who have donated in the past, we thank you for your generosity! For those of you who would like to participate this year, please see the attached donation form.
On behalf of TAAMS, we thank you for your support!
If you have any questions or need any further information, please contact me.
