The Nassau Regional EMS Council was established in 1993 by an act of the New York State Legislature. The Council consists of 30 members who live within the County of Nassau. One third of the members are active EMS providers, one third are Hospital based professionals and one third represents other important aspects of EMS (i.e. Communications, Disaster Management). The Council is responsible for coordinating EMS within the County. This includes the PCR distribution system as well as many other aspects of Emergency Medical Services.
Our Mission is to facilitate regional cooperation, planning and implementation of an integrated emergency medical services system, to reduce the human and economic costs of accidents and illnesses through continual improvement of emergency care, education and prevention activities.
