NEMSMA & IAFC-EMS Section Support Chief EMS Officer Designation


 
 

| Thursday, September 27, 2012


The NEMSMA and IAFC-EMS Section recently signed a joint statement in support of the Chief EMS Officer Designation Program.

The CEMSO Designation provides high-level credentialing for those leading and managing emergency medical services programs in fire departments, city or county government third service, hospital-based, private, volunteer, military, federal and other organizations.

The National EMS Management Association (NEMSMA) and the International Association of Fire Chiefs – EMS Section (IAFC‐EMS Section) represent a broad group of EMS leaders from most of the various organizational types by which EMS is delivered in the United States. Working together, the leadership of IAFC‐EMS Section and NEMSMA has determined that it is in our best interest to collaboratively support the CEMSO process and encourage participation in the program by EMS leaders regardless of the government or corporate environment in which they work. We recognize that while each environment has its unique aspects, the vast majority of what is done and what needs to be done by those leading and managing EMS programs is common to all legitimate, progressive EMS organizations.
