New Mexico EMSC

Over the past 23 years, the New Mexico EMSC project has benefited from strong leadership and National EMSC support. This leadership was comprised of an infrastructure from the:

  • New Mexico Department of Health
  • Injury Prevention and EMS Bureau (IPEMS)
  • Three EMS regional offices
  • EMS Academy
  • University of New Mexico, Health Sciences Center, Department of Emergency Medicine

In collaboration, these organizations continue to provide leadership, a clear mission, technical assistance, and a regulatory structure for the program.

  • Reactivation of the EMSC Advisory group.
  • Development of a New Mexico EMSC Web-page.
  • Development and distribution of Web-based Continuing Education for EMS personnel.
  • Identification of Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) for disaster planning purposes.
  • Participation in Bioterrorism and Homeland Security planning
  • Continued funding for EMS Services to implement Injury Prevention Projects.
  • Continued presentations of the PEPP curriculum for field providers.
