Resources for EMS Pediatric Emergency Care Coordinators

The page is designed to be a resource for EMS services, clinicians and most importantly, Pediatric Emergency Care Coordinators (PECCs).  It is under frequent development to offer a variety of resources.  If you have an idea or suggestion to add to or improve this page, please send a message to Marc Minkler, Maine EMSC Program Manager so we can add it!

As part of the EMSC grant, Maine EMS has a statewide system goal of 90% of all Maine EMS services to have a designated individual to coordinate pediatric care.

What is a Pediatric Emergency Care Coordinator (PECC)?

  • In short, it is a person who helps with readiness to manage pediatric EMS calls

What qualifications do you need?

  • You only need two things - Passion and Interest!
    • You don't have to be an expert - as you learn, so will your colleagues.
    • You don't have to have all the answers - it is a community of help and people to bounce ideas and questions off of.
    • You don't have to have a ton of resources or have a huge budget - many of the resources you need are easy to implement and require little to no money.
