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.

Are You EMS Strong?    

EMS Week will be on May 17-23 this year and is especially meaningful this year as fire departments and EMS agencies work to combat the COVID-19 virus. The IAFC is proud to partner with the American College of Emergency Physicians to support the EMS Strong campaign. Take a moment to look at the EMS Strong Campaign for ideas on how to celebrate EMS Week in your community.


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.
