For immediate release.
Eight Annual Louisiana EMS Memorial Bike Ride on Saturday September 26,2015.
For the past seven years, the Louisiana Association of Nationally Registered Emergency Medical Technicians (LANREMT) has sponsored an event called the Louisiana EMS Memorial bike Ride. Emergency Medical Services Professionals from across the state and from around the country have gathered every year to honor fallen members of the Louisiana EMS community by cycling from "New Orleans to Baton Rouge". The purpose of the event is to raise awareness of our fallen members, to ensure that their sacrifice and contributions are never forgotten, and to raise funds to build a physical state EMS memorial. We have honorees from all over the state again this year. We hope to get riders from all of those departments and from all over the state as well.
The ride starts at Delgado Community College City Park Campus at 0700 hours and will end at the Fire Dist 1 Station on Hwy 61 in Gonzales, Louisiana.
