To all District Six EMS Providers From Vermont Office of EMS
Update on the Regional EMS Coordination Study The Regional meeting schedule concluded on October 30, 2023, with a virtual only Zoom meeting. Over the last two months the in person and virtual regional public meetings provided great discussions with a wide representation of our stakeholders. We heard from the public, municipal leaders, legislative representatives, various stakeholder groups, providers of all levels and EMS service leaders from across the state. Thank you to all who participated in the meetings or
met with the team from Emergency Management Matters (EMM) one on one and in focus groups. Surveys have been sent out to the heads of service and providers across the state. We want to hear from you. Please take a moment if you have not done so to complete the short survey. These need to be completed as soon as possible but no
later than November 10th, as we are working on a very short timeline.
