The Suffolk Regional Emergency Medical Services Council was established and carries out its responsibilities pursuant to Article 30 of the New York State Public Health Law and Part 800 of the NYS CCRR. This thirty-member Council has representation from: out-of-hospital emergency medical care providers from the fire service; community volunteer, and commercial ambulance service sectors; physicians; nurses; health planning agencies; hospitals; police services; county government; the business community; and other constituencies promoting good health. By statute, the Council is charged with several responsibilities including coordination of emergency medical services in the Suffolk Region.
The heterogeneous make up of the Suffolk REMSCO has been identified by the NY State Department of Health as a “best practice” by bringing together those individuals with broad out reach into, and out, of the regional health care delivery system to provide a vital link in information gathering and dissemination.
The REMSCO encourages active participation by all parties involved in our emergency response system, and thus, we welcome you to our public meetings. The REMSCO meets on the second 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 2013 are: January 15, March 12, May 14, July 9, September 10 and November 12. Previous meetings that were webcast can be viewed by going to our video archives.
We encourage you to keep informed by those who represent you, and to use those representatives to bring your voice to the REMSCO proceedings. Just like an organizational flow chart, or Incident Command System chain of authority and reporting, we view this as a vital link in the two-way communication that is necessary to enhance regional coordination.
