The inaugural webinar will take a detailed look into the top four priorities of the FICEMS Strategic Plan, released earlier this year. FICEMS – the Federal Interagency Committee on EMS – consists of representatives from every federal agency that addresses EMS. FICEMS Chair Kathryn Brinsfield, MD, MPH, FACEP, and OEMS Director Drew Dawson will be accompanied by representatives from four committees to discuss efforts toward:
• Veteran to Civilian EMS Credentialing
• Evidence-Based Guideline Development
• EMS System Preparedness
• EMS Data Standardization
Attendees will be encouraged to participate in an open question-and-answer session, with the webinar and Q&A lasting approximately one hour.

Every other month, EMS FOCUS will provide a venue to discuss crucial initiatives, issues and challenges for EMS stakeholders and leaders nationwide.
