    Thank you... 

    to the 247 emergency and mobile healthcare professionals who participated in EMS On The Hill Day on April 29 in Washington, DC! Visits to 244 members of Congress solidified a strong EMS presence and message on the challenges EMS practitioners face in providing quality patient care in their communities, and on needed resources to prepare for public health emergencies and other mass casualty incidents. EMS On The Hill Day brought delegates from 40 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.

    View the April 28 Hill Day Briefing webcast here.

    Help continue the momentum!
