EMS for Children Committee

Membership and Meetings

The Maine EMS for Children (EMS-C) Advisory Committee is a federally funded program aimed at improving health outcomes for those 18 years old and younger. By collaborating between pre-hospital EMS providers and hospital providers, the Committee aims to improve education, assessment, treatment and transport of some of our most vulnerable patients. Meetings are held quarterly on the 2nd Thursday of March, June, September and December at Maine EMS in Augusta.

All meetings are open to the public, with the exception of those portions that may be conducted in executive session in accordance with Maine Law 32 M.R.S.A. § 90-A(3) and 1 M.R.S.A. § 405(6)(E) & (F)

All meetings are held at Maine EMS, 45 Commerce Drive, Suite 1, Augusta, ME 04333.  Meetings are typically held in the Champlain conference room.  Directions are located here.
