Have you ever wanted to be on a popular reality TV show where teams compete in a race around the world?!


Now’s your chance…to race to Mackinac Island!


The EMS EXPO Competition team has planned an exciting and exhilarating race of knowledge, skill and determination!


The top two teams, based on skill and time, will compete for the Timothy H. “Coop” Cooper Championship Cup. The Champion will be announced at the Networking Reception along with the top scorers from the written exam.

The key to success in competing is advanced preparation. Your team will need to prepare for a comprehensive written examination, physical challenges, practical skill stations, and a simulation designed to test your team’s critical thinking and teamwork. Top performers will need to implement the State of Michigan’s EMS protocols, AHA guidelines, educational standards, state objectives, and current information found in EMS publications, as well as proficiency in skill performance. During the practical skills stations the focus will be on best performance, however as this is a race, points will be awarded based on time to completion. Failure to competently complete a practical skills station will prevent the team from advancing in the race. 

What do you need to participate in the Grand Prix:

·        Each team must provide their own transportation (absolutely NO lights and sirens may be used and all traffic laws must be followed).

·        Each team must have a team uniform (service uniforms not required).

·        Team jump bag/box – more details to come later.

·        Suitable footwear.

·        Any additional clothing – swimsuit and towel, additional outerwear.

Team registration fee is $125. Each team must consist of 2 members. 


Teams must register by Friday, March 31, 2015.


All competitors must also register for the EMS EXPO Conference.


Prizes include paid registration fees and accommodations for the 2018 EMS EXPO!
