New England Council for EMS Annual Conference – Hyatt Regency Newport RI – November 23, 2015 – Schedule and Registration






Greetings All,

Please consider joining us for the rejuvenation of this long-standing New England EMS conference, and please forward this invitation to your EMS Fellows, colleagues, and friends.

The theme of this meeting is typically EMS administrative leadership networking and problem solving — in beautiful Newport, RI during a typically quiet week — excellent scenery, shopping, and relaxation.

This year we will be discussing protocols efforts (NASEMSO Model Guidelines, Pegasus Project, New England-wide “uniform” protocols), interstate cooperation on quality improvement and other cross-border issues, advances in resuscitation, and other topics.

We’ll also have time for roundtable updates from each state present.

For EMS Fellows, this will be a good chance to network and discuss state level EMS.

For those able to join us on Sunday, November 22 in the early afternoon, we’ll gather for a memorable lunch at the Inn at Castle Hill followed by a tour of the adjacent USCG Station Castle Hill.

There is a room block reserved at the Newport Hyatt on Goat Island for Sunday November 22, and the meeting will occur there on Monday November 23.

Please register using the links below, and email me or Wendy with any questions.
