Emergency Medical Service (EMS) leaders from across the state will be in Lexington this week to learn how they can work smarter to save lives. They will be attending the EMS Administrators Forum on Wednesday, Nov. 4 at the Hilton Suites (Lexington Green) from 9 a.m. 3:30 p.m.

 

In working closely together, we gain new perspectives and skills to be better prepared for any emergency situation, said KBEMS Executive Director Michael Poynter.

 

Topics to be discussed include: improving communications, state inspections, data reporting, EMS agency education requirements and more.

 

The Kentucky Board of Emergency Medical Services (KBEMS) brings lifesaving, emergency medical care to the Commonwealth by certifying first responders and emergency medical technicians, providing licenses to paramedics and ambulance services and establishing standards for education and training of emergency medical services personnel.
