NEMSAC Application Period Open


Apply Now to Join the National EMS Advisory Council   

Applications are now being accepted to join the 25-member National EMS Advisory Council (NEMSAC). Every two years, the Secretary of Transportation appoints members to the council, which is authorized to advise and consult with the Department of Transportation and the Federal Interagency Committee on EMS (FICEMS) on matters related to EMS. Each NEMSAC member represents a specific sector or stakeholder group, such as EMS practitioners, EMS educators and hospital-based EMS.

"Serving on the NEMSAC is a great way to represent your community and EMS at the federal level, and to work alongside innovative thinkers and leaders to improve EMS systems for every citizen," says Jon Krohmer, MD, Director of the Office of EMS.

Council members serve 2-year terms and may be reappointed for one additional successive term. The Council is expected to meet approximately three times per year as necessary in Washington, DC. Members are unpaid; however, the NHTSA Office of EMS sponsors the associated costs for members to travel to the meetings. NEMSAC members elect a chair and vice chair annually.

Details on how to apply are available online, as well as in the latest EMS Focus webinar. Applications may be emailed, faxed or mailed to the Office of EMS. All materials must be received on or before June 16, 2017.
