National Association of State EMS Officials (NASEMSO)

State Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Offices and State Offices of Rural Health (SORHs) are both committed to the principle that rural EMS systems should be able to respond in a timely, appropriate manner whenever serious injury or illness strikes someone in need. In 2009, the National Association of State EMS Officials (NASEMSO) and National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) created the Joint Committee on Rural Emergency Care (JCREC). This Committee is dedicated to advancing policy to ensure access to timely, affordable and high-quality emergency care services in rural America.
