What is FICEMS?

The Federal Interagency Committee on Emergency Medical Services (FICEMS) was established by Congress in 2005 to ensure coordination among Federal agencies supporting local, regional, state, tribal and territorial EMS and 911 systems. FICEMS was also created to improve the delivery of emergency medical services (EMS) throughout the nation.

The FICEMS accomplishes its mission by coordinating projects across the Federal government, predominantly for prehospital issues. FICEMS responsibilities include the following:

  • Identifying EMS and 9-1-1 needs
  • Recommending new or expanded EMS and communication technologies
  • Identifying ways to streamline the process through which Federal agencies support
  • EMS assisting local, regional, State, tribal, and territorial EMS in setting priorities

Advising, consulting, and making recommendations on matters related to implementation of coordinated State EMS programs
