Advancing the EMS profession

Diversity and Inclusion

NAEMT believes that the EMS workforce should reflect the demographics of the communities in which it serves.  National and state EMS associations have a responsibility to promote diversity and inclusion within the EMS profession. NAEMT actively collaborates with other national EMS organizations and EMS agency and education leaders to promote a diverse and inclusive EMS workforce and encourages individuals from underrepresented communities to attend EMS education programs.
