EMS Deployment Community of Practice

Welcome to the EMS Deployment Community of Practice

As a brief introduction, “communities of practice” are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and seek to learn how to do it better as they interact with others through sharing their experience and knowledge.  The focus of this group will be topics related to improving the performance of EMS as it relates specifically to organizing and deploying resources. To help organize the discussions, a growing list of topics will appear below. Please be thoughtful and respectful in commenting and insert comments that are pertinent to the individual specific topics.
