The Missouri EMS Memorial Foundation and the Missouri EMS Memorial was established with one purpose; honoring the memory of Missouri Emergency Medical Services individuals who gave their lives in the line of duty. We are dedicated to providing a permanent home where individuals, families, and organizations can go to reflect and remember their loved ones who gave that ultimate sacrifice.
To be located on the beautiful campus of Missouri Western State University, on Downs Drive in the City of St. Joseph, a memorial site was selected to erect a permanent memorial. The Missouri EMS Memorial Wall of Honor will serve as a tribute to immortalize the extraordinary commitment and courage of the State of Missouri’s EMS Providers. We also recognize the need to honor those who have faithfully served in EMS. Those names may be etched into one of the Service Walls which flank the Memorial Wall of Honor. Thus, watching over our fallen comrades.
