Subject: CALL ON CONGRESS TO SUPPORT EMS PROVIDERS IN CORONA VIRUS LEGISLATION

NYS EMS Leaders,

The U.S. Congress is in the process of drafting additional legislation to help the nation cope with the Corona Virus pandemic.  None of the bills passed thus far have provided direct funding relief or protection for our nation’s EMTs and Paramedics.

NAEMT is activating a grassroots campaign to call upon Congress to provide direct assistance to EMS.

It only takes a few minutes for you to send letters to New York’s Senators and members of Congress to ask them to include direct funding for EMS in the next Corona Virus funding bill.  The campaign can be accessed through the NAEMT website at: http://www.naemt.org/advocacy/online-legislative-service#/.

The link above will allow you to send e-mails to our elected representatives.  It will take less than 1 minute.

Thank you for all that you are doing to keep your community safe in this difficult time.

Be Safe,

Steve Kroll, NAEMT Advocacy Coordinator for New York State (steven.kroll@delmarems.org)

Travis Howe, NAEMT Assistant Advocacy Coordinator for New York State (thowe@mountainlakesems.org)
