National Advisory Panel (NAP)

The National Advisory Panel (NAP) is tasked with examining the current landscape of challenges and issues facing state emergency medical services (EMS) offices and the personnel they license. The NAP is charged with constructing a set of recommendations that can be considered in the development of a model interstate compact related to the licensure of EMS personnel. The NAP is composed of twenty-five issue and stakeholder experts from around the country with emphasis placed on state officials and other policymakers, as well as key external stakeholders, including federal agencies and industry.
