The mission of the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) program is to strengthen emergency care through cooperative partnerships and to promote the well-being of the citizens of Nebraska and those who live and work in the State.
 
The EMS Program staff carries this mission forward through the EMS program administrator, EMS specialists, an EMS education & training coordinator, a statewide trauma program manager, and two staff assistants.
 
The EMS Program staff provides support for out-of-hospital providers and emergency services to include technical assistance and continuing education & training.
 

Airlifting a patientSupport of Services
 
Across Nebraska, approximately 430 licensed ambulance services provide life saving emergency medical care at a moment's notice. Most services provide this care through one of two types of licenses. These license levels are Basic Life Support and Advanced Life Support. Within these licenses, a service may be either a transporting or non-transporting provider.
 
The EMS Program assists services in providing quality care in a variety of ways. Some of the resources available through the EMS Program are Physician Medical Director Training, quality assurance guidelines, patient care documentation classes, and service management classes.
