For far too long EMS has been relegated to “you call, we haul.” As we all struggle with funding challenges, it is time to look at ourselves differently. With recent events such as active shooters, the opioid epidemic, MIH, the COVID-19 pandemic, civil unrest, and more, the role of EMS has changed forever. This session will connect the dots between EMS, MIH, and public health. EMS has never been properly assimilated into public health, but when we as EMS take one step back, we are at the epicenter of it. No other entity nationally or internationally has the routine and trusted access to the public we do! Join us to see how to change the narrative and trajectory of EMS.
Understand the concept of EMS providers functioning as a part of public health.
Have a greater understanding of how quality data drives funding, which drives staffing and legislation.
Understand that the EMS provider is perfectly poised to assist with issues concerning public health.
