EMS Caucus


EMS providers throughout the country face a broad array of federal policy, reimbursement and regulatory issues that span across a number of committee jurisdictions in the House of Representatives. The creation and support of a robust Congressional EMS Caucus will bring a more disciplined focus on these issues and form a more collective and cohesive bipartisan message on EMS issues and to support EMS providers nationwide.
The Congressional EMS Caucus will help promote, educate, and increase awareness among decision-makers on the federal policy issues affecting EMS providers. Congressional support for emergency medical and trauma care at the federal level is needed now more than ever.

We encourage EMS providers to ask your member of the U.S. House of Representatives to join the Congressional EMS Caucus. Ask them to contact Samantha Dercher in the office of Rep. Tim Walz (D-MN). And, remember to thank them for supporting EMS!
