Emergency Medical Service workers operate under immense pressure, handling life-and-death situations on a daily basis. When the stress becomes too great, and it feels as if they have no strength left, it is a comfort for them to have some Christian jewelry as a reminder that they are not alone. The Shields of Strength women's antique finish EMS necklace is a wonderful way for medical professionals to hold the Words of God close to their hearts. It comprises a stainless steel chain measuring 16, 18, 20, 22 or 24 inches, and a zinc pendant embossed with the words "When seconds count" and the EMS Star of Life. The reverse of the pendant bears the words of Isaiah 26:3, "Thou will keep me in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because I trust in Thee." The necklace is easy to clean with warm, soapy water.
