EMS Advisory Council

Looking to make a difference in your community? Join the National EMS Advisory Council (NEMSAC). Applications due this Friday, 1/15/2021, at 5 pm EST.

The Department of Transportation established the NEMSAC to provide information, advice, and recommendations on all aspects of EMS development and implementation. The council is comprised of 25 members that collectively represent all sectors of the EMS community. The broad-based membership ensures that it has sufficient EMS system expertise and geographic and demographic diversity to reflect the whole EMS community accurately.

Members serve 2-year terms and may be reappointed for one additional successive term. The council meets in plenary session approximately three to four times per year. Members will not receive pay or other compensation for their service but are entitled to reimbursement for their travel expenses, including per diem.
