EMS Agenda 2050 Straw Man Version 2 Released

Posted By Monica J. Newman, Tuesday, January 30, 2018

The IAFCCP is taking an active role in the creation of the EMS Agenda 2050, and we want to share with you the new version of the Straw Man document, released earlier this month. Like the initial version released in the fall, the Straw Man is designed to provide further discussion about the future of EMS and include many of the ideas and concepts currently being considered by the Technical Expert Panel as a result of several months of great feedback and input from the community.

We'd like your feedback on this important document.
