Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s National Emergency Medical Services Advisory Council has scheduled public meetings for Nov. 15-16.

The tentative agenda includes updates on NHTSA initiatives, new advisory topic proposals, subcommittee reports on “advisories in progress,” informational sessions and strategic planning. 

NEMSAC comprises EMS representatives who advise and consult with the Federal Interagency Committee on Emergency Medical Services and the secretary of transportation.

“NEMSAC provides an important national forum for the non-federal deliberation of national EMS issues and serves as a platform for advice on [the Department of Transportation’s] national EMS activities,” a recent notice states.

Preregistration is required to attend the meeting in person or virtually. Anyone wanting to speak during the meeting must submit a written copy of their remarks to DOT by Nov. 8.
