Membership and Meetings
The Interfacility Transport Advisory Committee aims to improve the transport of patients of all ages during non-911 medical needs. Moving patients to acute care hospitals from smaller critical access facilities, to the "routine" transport of non-emergency patients who need higher levels of care and transport to the emergency movement of patients throughout Maine and beyond is a critical role of EMS. Meetings are held as needed. This committee was re-established by the Maine EMS Board in May of 2021 and defined further in August of 2021. Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month at 0930.
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.
