The awards presentation was part of the council's annual EMS family day at the ballpark attended by some 650 responders, dispatchers, emergency department staff and their families.

The council's highest award, the R. C. Dailey Award for Excellence in EMS, was presented to Bruce W. Edwards, retired EMS chief for the Virginia Beach Department of EMS. Edwards was praised for many "firsts" in his city, the region and in the state which included building and improving the largest volunteer rescue squad system in the country, serving multiple terms on the Tidewater EMS Council Board of Directors and its executive committee, serving multiple terms on the Virginia EMS Advisory Board and chair of its communications committee, and serving as the first EMS representative to the Virginia Board of Health and elected to serve as its chair.
