Voluntary EMS Pediatric Recognition Program

Voluntary EMS Pediatric Recognition Program

Many EMS Agencies in Kentucky are willing to go above and beyond the minimum requirements so that they are ready to provide high quality pediatric emergency care. Because pediatric patients are different in many ways from out adult patients, and we see a smaller number of critically ill and injured children, it is even more important to put extra effort into being prepared to care for them when it matters most.

The KYEMSC Voluntary EMS Pediatric Recognition Program honors ​EMS Agencies who meet established criteria, beyond regulatory requirements, which are designed to improve the agency's capabilities to deliver care to pediatric patients.

We want the leaders in our ​profession who have demonstrated a commitment to caring for his vulnerable population to receive the recognition they deserve from both the public and their peers.
