January 2019 EMS Update: NEMSAC Welcomes New Members to Council
Several new and returning members of the National EMS Advisory Council were sworn in and discussed their priorities at a meeting in Washington in October. A complete list of current NEMSAC members is available on EMS.gov.
The council discussed a wide range of topics, from improving data analysis in EMS to addressing staffing shortages in both career and volunteer organizations. NEMSAC members will also review the responses to a recent Request for Information that solicited suggestions for how to improve prehospital trauma care, and make recommendations for how DOT and its federal partners should address them. (The responses can be read online.)
