FAEMS was established in ​2016 to honor NAEMSP® members who have made special contributions to the Association and the subspecialty of EMS Medicine.  In 2017, professional members became eligible for this status.  In 2020, International members became eligible (see above for criteria).

This important designation, FAEMS™, speaks to contributions to NAEMSP® and highlights commitment to the advancement and refinement of EMS Medicine.​​
