The Vermont Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) program – funded through a federal grant administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration – was established in 1989.
The EMSC program works toward nine performance measures determined by the Health Resources and Services Administration to develop special goals, activities, and projects that prioritize improving emergency care for children. Vermont EMSC works with partner organizations that focus on data analysis, quality improvement, and pediatric research to ensure the best possible outcomes for children needing emergency care across the state.
The Vermont EMSC program also collaborates with the New England Emergency Medical Services for Children (NE EMSC) to participate in regional initiatives such as pediatric educational opportunities, pediatric emergency care recognition programs, and injury prevention initiatives.
These efforts are essential in working toward the primary goal of improving emergency care for every child in Vermont, no matter where they live, play, or go to school.
