The purpose of NAEMT's Advocacy program is to represent our members on the issues that impact the EMS work environment and the ability of EMS practitioners to effectively serve their patients. We advocate to advance the interests of our profession and our patients.

Through advocacy, we help ensure that the EMS perspective is understood and incorporated into the policies, plans and programs of our government and other national institutions. We voice our concerns when actions are being considered that would have an adverse effect on our members and their patients. And, we promote EMS professionalism and our image within the EMS and medical communities.
