Whether you are fire, public or private, rural, suburban, urban, city or county, hospital, third service, police, military, you are welcome under the National EMS Management Association umbrella—the only EMS association dedicated to discovering, sharing, developing, and promoting best EMSmanagement practices.

Under the NEMSMA umbrella, you will have an opportunity to continually learn from a diverse group of EMS executives who, like you, deal with EMS staffing, budgeting, deployment, response times, fleet management and medical direction on a daily basis. You can share your hard knocks and wisdom with other NEMSMA managers who can give you peertopeer feedback.

Our goal is to become a powerful source for information, knowhow and experience for all EMS managers, regardless of agency size and model. We are on a campaign to collectively learn from each other and scale the mountain of unproductive and limiting rhetoric about whose model is better.
