Congress Enacts Laws That Impact EMS.
Shouldn’t ALL Members of Congress Understand EMS?
Democrats, Republicans and Independents alike must understand EMS if they are to create legislation in the best interest of our profession and the patients we serve. While their political parties and viewpoints may differ, all 535 members of Congress must:
- Understand the issues and challenges impacting our ability to provide quality patient care.
- Hear from the EMS professionals who are their constituents – those who live and work in their legislative areas and who VOTE.
In 2016, EMS On The Hill Day participants visited 258 congressional leaders. The remaining 277 members of Congress were not visited because EMS constituents from their states did not attend.
The only way to educate all 535 members of Congress is if you attend! EMS On The Hill Day is open to all in EMS.

“As medical transportation comes to play a more integral part of our healthcare system, we saw an opportunity with NAEMT to increase awareness about the value EMS brings to the table and to be a part of their advocacy group, especially On the Hill Day. NAEMT is committed to advocating for our profession and our patients and we want to be a part of that change.”
