Goal & Vision of the Domestic Preparedness Committee

The Goal of the Domestic Preparedness Committee of the National Association of State EMS Officials is committed to providing technical assistance for and representation of State EMS Directors regarding both natural as well as terrorist type incidents as they relate to planning, preparedness, response and recovery, to include homeland security activities. The Domestic Preparedness Committee is committed to assure that EMS leadership has a "seat at the table" in these important initiatives as well as reviewing and providing input into federal plans and documents.

The Vision of the Domestic Preparedness Committee is to ensure effective preparedness activities by cooperating and collaborating with our response stakeholders, partners and various local, state and federal agencies.  NASEMSO will work hand-in-hand during a state declared disaster or domestic incident with their response stakeholders in order to keep members informed and to meet EMS demands of the incident.
