Emergency Preparedness Committee

Welcome to the NAEMSP Emergency Preparedness Committee home page! The Emergency Preparedness Committee serves as the Association’s expert on disaster and mass casualty medicine and emergency preparedness. Our committee works to increase awareness of important issues in disaster preparedness and response. The Committee also assembles resources to help EMS professionals better prepare their organizations to deal with large-scale or unusual incidents.

NAEMSP Emergency Preparedness Committee
Rapid Response Document Review Task Force



The NAEMSP Emergency Preparedness Committee’s Document Review Task Force (the “Rapid Response Task Force”) is a group of EMS and disaster medicine experts who serve to provide the Association and its partners with subject matter expertise on policy and procedures related to mass casualty, disaster, and special incidents.  The Task Force will analyze and provide feedback on position and policy statements, resource and reference papers, operational procedures, or other documents.  The Task Force can review and provide commentary on a short-notice time frame (however, two to four weeks will allow for more thorough review).
