Advancing the EMS profession


EMS On The Hill Day
| Join us on Capitol Hill, April 17-18, 2024, to visit with congressional leaders and staff, and help them understand the needs of EMS in our communities and states – especially during this critical time. We’ll begin with a pre-hill briefing to meet as a group, hear the details of our requests to Congress, and answer any questions. Hill Day includes both seasoned advocates and first-time EMS advocates so it’s a great opportunity to network, learn, and gain insight on federal legislation and its impact on state legislative efforts. Registration is open and the fee is only $20 ($40 for physicians), which includes two receptions and congressional scheduling services.

  • 4/18/24: 8:00am–5:00pm, EMS On The Hill Day Congressional Visits
