September 2017 EMS Update: EMS Agenda 2050 Releases Straw Man, Gets Ready to Kick-Off Regional Meetings
After receiving initial input from hundreds of people nationally, the EMS Agenda 2050 Technical Expert Panel has been working to create a Straw Man document that will include many of those ideas in order to stimulate further conversation, elicit feedback and develop a community-driven vision. The Straw Man was recently released, and the first of four regional meetings that EMS Agenda 2050 is hosting across the country will take place on September 25 in Silver Spring, Maryland.
“Although we’ve received some great input already, this is where the fun really starts,” said Mike Taigman, a veteran EMS thought leader and member of the EMS Agenda 2050 project team. “The Straw Man gives everyone an opportunity to look at some of the ideas that have been suggested and respond to them, refine them and create an EMS Agenda 2050 that is as visionary and important as its predecessor was two decades ago.”
