CLINTON, Miss. — In unanimous decisions, the Boards of the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) and the National Emergency Medical Services Management Association (NEMSMA) voted to establish a strategic relationship between their two organizations to mutually support their respective missions and work collaboratively to advance the EMS profession. Both organizations strongly believe that collaboration within the EMS profession is essential to addressing the key challenges facing EMS today and in the future.

The agreement calls for collaboration on a wide range of policy and programmatic activities in areas such as advocacy, public awareness, education, and clinical standards. "We are excited about the opportunities this new partnership will present. We know we can accomplish more for the EMS profession working collaboratively. Bringing together the providers and the administrators will improve communications for all and advance our common interests," says Troy Hagen, NEMSMA President.

We are very excited about the opportunities that this new relationship offers.”
