Abstract

The Federal Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Program is designed to ensure that all children and adolescents, no matter where they live, attend school, or travel, receive appropriate care in a health emergency. The Program also supports two resource centers: the EMSC National Resource Center (NRC) and the National EMSC Data Analysis Resource Center (NEDARC). The NRC works with states to identify the resources needed to organize and implement EMSC activities throughout the nation. NEDARC assists EMSC grantees and state EMS offices in developing their own capabilities to collect, analyze, and utilize EMS and other healthcare data to improve the quality of care in state EMS and trauma systems.
