Help Shape EMS Agenda 2050 at Upcoming Regional Meetings
The team developing the EMS Agenda 2050 document has created a preliminary “straw man” version developed from early feedback from the EMS community and associated stakeholders. A series of four forthcoming regional meetings will offer additional opportunity for those interested to help shape this important publication, which is intended to guide the field’s growth over the coming decades.
Advance registration is required for the meetings; do that and/or find more information at http://emsagenda2050.org/regional-public-meetings/. The meetings will be held:
- September 25 at the Silver Spring Civic Building in Silver Spring, Md.;
- November 7 at the University of Minnesota Humphrey School of Public Affairs Conference Center in Minneapolis;
- January 17, 2018 at the California Science Center in Los Angeles; and
- March 1, 2018 at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel in Dallas.
Attendees will be able to discuss the content of the straw man document with members of the EMS Agenda 2050 Technical Expert Panel and other EMS participants. Each daylong meeting, NHTSA says, “will be full of collaborative visioning exercises to ensure EMS Agenda 2050 incorporates bold concepts for the future. While many other meetings consist of several hours of presentations with only a few minutes for public comment, EMS Agenda 2050 is turning that format upside-down, with an entire day filled with chances for you to share your thoughts on what EMS should look like three decades from now.”
