Lincoln Cox, M.D. - Chairman
The Regional Emergency Medical Advisory Committee is charged with establishing an effective means for physician input into the development of Emergency Medical Service policy relative to EMS patient care delivery, certification and training. The development of treatment protocols, Quality Assurance initiatives, and the overall medical operation of the Suffolk County Emergency Medical Services System are the primary goals of the REMAC.
The Regional Emergency Medical Advisory Committee consists of representatives of each of the Region's hospitals. Up to three (3) physicians from each hospital with active staff privileges are elected to a four year term. Additionally, up to eight (8) physicians with related professional expertise may be elected as members-at-large. Non-voting members of REMAC are representative of basic and advanced life support providers, training course medical directors, emergency nurses and Medical Control. Each holds a two (2) year term of office.
The REMAC meets on the fourth Tuesday of every other month, starting in January, at 7:00 p.m. at the Suffolk County EMS office at 360 Yaphank Ave., Suite 1B, Yaphank, NY 11980.
Meeting dates for 2014 are: January 28, March 25, May 27, July 22, September 23 and November 25. Previous meetings that were webcast can be viewed by going to our video archives.
