The South Carolina EMS Association (SCEMSA) is a nonprofit organization committed to creating a unified voice for EMS providers across all sectors in the state of South Carolina. Our mission is to advance EMS through advocacy, collaboration, and education. No matter what sector of EMS you work in, we will work for you and your colleagues to foster a safe and successful environment in which every provider can thrive.
In the last few years, specific subcommittees have been formed to address issues with workforce sustainability, shortages in certified EMS providers at all levels, health and safety of our EMS providers (to include PTSD and emotional trauma), education and access to EMS education systems, and more. Your SCEMSA subcommittees are actively engaging with other stakeholders to publish data and reports to help guide our legislative efforts and help us work with our State EMS Office to enact meaningful change and improve upon our statewide EMS systems.
As the SCEMSA continues to improve, in 2020, we transitioned to a more modern website hosting platform that will prove to be more user-friendly and intuitive. You will discover an interface that allows members to
We will offer exclusive members-only content and push out information and resources keeping us better connected to our members across the state.
We would greatly appreciate the opportunity to show you what the SCEMSA is all about and show you the value of your involvement. There are unique opportunities available to serve on all of our subcommittees; membership opportunities; and advocacy activities.
