The Joint Committee on Rural Emergency Care invites Rural Emergency Medical Service (EMS) Directors, State EMS Officials, State Offices of Rural Health, Flex Program Managers, hospital administrators, elected officials, medical directors & other interested EMS partners to attend the National Rural EMS Conference: Building Integration & Leadership for the Future in Cheyenne, Wyoming on May 5-6, 2015. During the conference participants will learn about the future of rural EMS, community paramedicine, systems of care, performance improvement, ambulance service sustainability, rural EMS education, simulation in motion, and much more.

“I’ve been hearing from people all over the country that are interested in attending the conference.  People seem genuinely interested to getting together to learn about and discuss rural EMS issues,” said Stephanie Hansen, NOSORH Education and Service Director.  The cost to attend the conference is $200 and includes food.  Online registration is now open.  Sign-up today to reserve your spot!

Vendors are needed to help support the conference.  Wyoming and Nevada have generously shared their EMS vendor lists with NOSORH but we are still looking to make contacts with other potential EMS vendors. If you have an email list that you can share with the JCREC, please send it to Stephanie Hansen (
