The 4-1-1 on NASEMSO Projects and Activities from the Current Issue of the Washington Update

  • Fatigue in EMS: the expert panel and research team met in Washington, DC on Apr. 26-27. Several EMS organizations and observers were present as the project team, using the GRADE methodology, worked on developing PICO questions to commence its literature search into the evidence.
  • EMS Compass: 66 individual comments were received in the most recent public comment period along with letter responses from AAA and NAEMT. The 2nd batch of measures (STEMI and SCA) will launch May 13.
  • National Model EMS Clinical Guidelines: moving into next phase of project. Revisions anticipated along with new content.
  • REPLICA: only 3 more states are needed to enact legislation that would enable implementation of the EMS licensure compact. NASEMSO Board of Directors has established an interim committee to help build the foundation of the REPLICA Commission.
  • FACTOID on naloxone administration for opioid overdose by BLS personnel: 92% of states already permit EMT’s to administer naloxone or are currently engaged in a regulatory process to allow and 80% of states that have them, allow it at the EMR/First Responder level.
  • Ground Ambulance Vehicle Standards and EMS Safety Resource: while still under development, the goal of SafeAmbulances.org is to compile information about ground ambulance standards and EMS safety into a single portal.

NASEMSO Is Strategic Partner of EMS STRONG

(03/07/16) Produced by the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), in partnership with the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT), EMS STRONG is a campaign designed to celebrate, unite, and inspire the men and women of EMS 365 days a year. NASEMSO is a strategic partner of EMS STRONG. EMS STRONG is the bond you share with fellow first responders. Sometimes that bond is expressed in a silent nod of recognition, and other times it takes the form of war stories shared for the umpteenth time. But it’s always there. EMS STRONG is what draws a special few together to do incredibly important work, often under difficult circumstances, and many times with little thanks. Learn more about the campaign here.
