Emergency medical response is relatively new, but it has its own museum

From the Post:

It’s hard to imagine a world without emergency medical services — the first responders, surgeons and other professionals who can mean the difference between life and death for the people they help.

But not that long ago, the field didn’t exist.

Such things as ambulances, emergency defibrillators and walkie-talkies are all relatively new creations. Even CPR, one of the most well-known techniques, didn’t exist until 1960. So how did the idea of emergency medical services get its start? The National EMS Museum answers that question.
