The backbone of PEMS workload is necessarily performed by highly-skilled providers and practitioners with extensive experience in our prehospital EMS system.  Each of our committees is chaired by an expert in their associated field and a PEMS staff member is assigned to each committee to facilitate the administrative and logistic needs of the committee.  PEMS standing committees are listed below.  Follow the link to each committee for further information and access to committee documents.
