The EMS and Highway Safety Connection: New Website Launched
(06/26/14) NASEMSO is delighted that the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has created a website designed to promote collaboration between EMS and highway safety officials. The site recently became live and can be accessed at EMS and Highway Safety. One goal of the site is to encourage State EMS Offices to engage in the Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) process to reduce serious highway injuries and fatalities. The Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) is a data-driven, four to five year comprehensive plan that integrates the 4Es of highway safety: Engineering, Education, Enforcement and Emergency Medical Services (EMS). For a number of years, NASEMSO has worked to promote such collaboration. The Highway Incident and Transportation Systems (HITS) Committee was established as a standing Committee of NASEMSO in 2008 in an effort to further promote EMS involvement in highway safety issues. In fact, HITS members provided input on the content for the new site when the developer presented the project at HITS Committee meetings in 2013. See HITS Committee & Projects for more information on NASEMSO activities in highway safety issues and projects.
