VIDEO: The more than 20,000 paramedics, EMTs and 911 dispatchers in Massachusetts were honored Wednesday as part of National EMS Week as a large convoy of ambulances traveled from Worcester to Boston. The "Convoy of Champions" set off from UMass Memorial Medical Center about 1:15 p.m. and made the 40-mile drive in about an hour, with a state police escort and a UMass Medical Life Flight helicopter. Upon arrival, the drivers formed a heart in the Red Sox' outfield, around the word "EMS" mown into the grass. The ambulance crews were greeted with a flyover from both UMass and Boston MedFlight helicopters. Gov. Charlie Baker, Attorney General Maura Healey, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and health care leaders were expected to provide video tributes to the EMS professionals, as well.
