Oregon Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) was established in 1984. The Oregon Health Authority EMS and Trauma Systems is the lead agency for EMSC in Oregon. Get EMSC Advisory Committee meeting schedule, minutes and other information.

EMSC is an initiative designed to reduce child and youth disability and death due to severe illness or injury. The goals are to ensure that state-of-the-art emergency medical care is available for all ill or injured children and adolescents; that pediatric services are well integrated into an emergency medical services (EMS) system; and that the entire spectrum of emergency services, including primary prevention of illness and injury, acute care, and rehabilitation, are provided to children and adolescents.
