Missouri Emergency Medical Services Association
MEMSA is a nonprofit, statewide, professional association committed to high quality emergency medical services across Missouri.
Since 1983, MEMSA has provided leadership in education, training, and pre-licensing EMT and EMT-P practical testing as well as legislation.
MEMSA provides a forum for EMS professionals to accomplish common goals that ensure quality EMS care is delivered statewide. MEMSA members are actively involved in collaborative efforts to achieve these and other goals.
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.
