Fairfax, Va. - A new resource for fire and emergency service leaders looking to strengthen or protect their department’s position as a fire service-based EMS provider is now available. Fire Service-Based EMS Electronic Tool Kit: Resources for Leaders is a brief, web-based selection of critical facts, documents and videos that will support fire chiefs and others as they engage in discussions with policymakers and the public on the role of fire service-based EMS in their communities.

The current economic environment coupled with opportunities being presented as part of national health-care reform, has many communities considering various model of EMS delivery. Now more than ever, fire and emergency service leaders need to understand and be able to articulate to policymakers and the public the effective and efficient nature of fire service-based EMS.

Fire Service-Based EMS Electronic Tool Kit: Resources for Leaders is provided as a cooperative effort between the IAFC, the International Association of Fire Fighters and the Metropolitan Fire Chiefs Association.
