EMS Workforce Guidelines Draft Finalized

Aug 15, 2013

Wrapping up a two-year project involving national EMS stakeholder organizations, NASEMSO has submitted a final draft of the EMS Workforce Planning and Development Guidelines for State Adoption. NASEMSO proposed to demonstrate at a national level that systematic workforce evaluation and planning is vital for ensuring a robust and capable EMS workforce. This effort will yield state EMS workforce data collection, planning and development guidelines. An invitational National Stakeholder Meeting was held in Washington, DC on July 25, 2013. The draft available includes changes as recommended by the Stakeholder Meeting participants and has been submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for review and approval. More information is available through Dia Gainor, NASEMSO Executive Director, by e-mailing dia@nasemso.org.
