Proud to wear this patch!

The NorthStar EMS (NEMS) patch displays the “Star of Life”, and it also promotes our company motto, “Excellence in Prehospital Care!”  In 1992, this motto created the foundation of NEMS as we know it today.  A lot of hard work went into building an EMS service committed to providing high quality patient care.  Our patch represents who we are as a company and more importantly the professionalism of our Team Members in building an EMS service that has become Alabama’s largest ambulance provider.
