Emergency Medical Services | EMS

The IAFC Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Section addresses fire-based EMS issues, and provides guidance and direction to the IAFC board and membership, as well as the federal government and other interest groups.

Coronavirus Resources Available     

As your agency prepares to respond to the Coronavirus, please review the resources available on the IAFC's Coronavirus Resources page. The IAFC would especially like to highlight the two following items which provide an overview of the most important information for fire chiefs on Coronavirus:

Run for the EMS Section Board

Are you interested in becoming more involved in the EMS Section? If so, running for election to the EMS Section Board is a great way to increase your involvement. Consider declaring your candidacy for the upcoming election by sending your name, position of interest, candidate bio (100 words maximum), and candidate platform (350 words maximum) to the EMS Section by Match 31 at 8pm ET. For more information, please see the EMS Section Candidate Manual

Attend Fire-Rescue Med 2020

Each year, the EMS Section sponsors Fire-Rescue Med, a conference addressing a wide variety of EMS issues. The conference is recognized throughout the industry as the premier gathering of fire service EMS leadership. Sessions are specifically targeted toward upper management, EMS officer and mid-level supervisors. For 2020, Fire-Rescue Med will be co-located with Fire-Rescue International in Phoenix, Arizona. By co-locating these conferences, EMS Section members will be able to easily take advantage of two great learning and networking opportunities.
