NHTSA Office of EMS Annual Update
From the NHTSA Office of EMS
Find out more about what’s been accomplished in 2020 and how you can get involved in national efforts to improve EMS
This year has been like no other for each of you, and the same is true at the NHTSA Office of EMS. Since COVID-19 first hit the United States, we’ve been busy working with our partners at the federal, state and local levels to support EMS clinicians serving on the front lines of our healthcare system.
At the same time, our other important work to advance EMS systems nationwide has continued, from updating the National EMS Education Standards to developing evidence-based guidelines, and so much more. Many of you have continued to contribute to these efforts by serving on expert panels, attending virtual meetings and providing critical feedback. Thank you for these efforts to achieve the vision put forth in EMS Agenda 2050 even as you confront one of the most challenging years we have faced, professionally and personally.
