Hot Topics

Federal SIREN Act

Reach out to members of Congress and ask them to support the SIREN Act to address the challenges faced by Rural EMS.

Supporting and Improving Rural EMS Needs (SIREN) Act (H.R. 5429/S 2830)

  • This bill would create a grant program for EMS agencies in rural areas - many of which are at the forefront of the opioid epidemic - to support recruitment, retention, education, and equipment for EMS personnel in rural areas.
  • This was introduced by Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Pat Roberts (R-KS) and Representatives Greg Gianforte (R-MT) and David Loebsack (R-IA). 

Please consider spending just a few minutes on the NAEMT online legislative system to send an email to your members of Congress in support of this bill.  Use the NAEMT legislative service here:  http://www.naemt.org/advocacy/online-legislative-service#/

Thanks for your help in moving EMS forward!


EMS Regulation changes in Missouri

Governor Greitens has directed all Missouri agencies to review the present regulations and consider which ones might be eliminated.  As part of that general discussion, the SAC has begun to review all the core EMS regulations in order to provide recommendations to the DHSS.  The SAC is hosting a series of meetings to seek input on the current EMS regulations.  Those meetings are also on the web.  Following each meeting drafts will be put on the web and open for further comment.

The goal of the SAC is to get consensus within the industry prior to submitting recommended changes to the DHSS for their consideration.

The discussion forum on our website is an informal process separate from the official process DHSS and the Secretary of State conduct, but this is the best and easiest way to engage and review regulations that were written in 1998.  What should be updated, changed, added, dropped, re-worded to clarify, etc. 

Please spend a few minutes looking over the state EMS regulations and visit the new draft posted on the regulation page of our website.  Please leave your comments and suggestions on these topics in our discussion forum.
