InterAgency Board (IAB) Health, Medical, and Responder Safety (HMRS) SubGroup: Position Statement in Support of a Single National EMS Administrative Body [open pdf - 155KB]
This document is a Position Statement by the InterAgency Board in regard to establishing a single national EMS [Emergency Medical Services] administrative body. The following has been taking from the document opening: "The United States currently lacks a national single point of leadership and advocacy for the coordination and funding of Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Despite significant attention paid to emergency preparedness and response over the past decade, the role of EMS in supporting these efforts as an independent discipline have largely been ignored in guidance development and grant funding."
