IEMS Memorial Shirts 

In the early morning of February 16, 2013, the city of Indianapolis lost two heroes of public safety. Private Timothy McCormick, EMT-B and Specialist Cody Medley, EMT-P were killed as a result of a tragic ambulance collision. This design was created to honor our fallen brothers and is available on long and short sleeve t-shirts, crew neck sweatshirts, traditional hoodies, as well as zip hoodies. We’ll be taking the second round of orders until May 28, 2013. All proceeds will help fund a memorial sign at the crash site.
