EMS Honor Guard
An EMS Honor Guard is the formal representative of an Emergency Service Agency at all types of functions including funerals, graduations, parades, sporting events, and other special activities. The personnel who comprise the Honor Guard come from military and non-military backgrounds. Each person must have discipline and stamina and present a professional appearance on a daily basis. The Honor Guard practices regularly and drills before events. In rain or shine, heat or cold, an EMS Honor Guard maintains its strict composure, precise military bearing, and meticulous attention to detail.
The EMS Honor Guard Uniform
Like any honor guard uniform, a common ems honor guard uniform consists of a dress uniform coat with alterations and accessories like embroiderd sleeve braid, sleeve insignia, shoulder cords, fire department badge, nametag, and a representative fire department patch. Dress pants, often with striping on the side, high gloss dress oxford shoes, white parade gloves, dress class a shirt with collar insignia, and a dress hat completes the normal ems honor guard uniform.

- Blue is a common shirt or scarf color as well as yellow some times
- The hat is usually an air force style cap or a modified pershing cap and is often white
