Following the recommendation of the EMS Task Force Report in 2018, a Citizen’s Advisory Committee on Emergency Medical Services was established. The committee will increase community awareness of the EMS system and EMS providers in Dutchess County as well as working to identify the benefits, feasibility, and process to establish an Emergency Service Authority in Dutchess County to provide service that is patient centered, consistent, reliable, affordable, and sustainable.
The committee meets monthly and is tasked with addressing long-term solutions. The committee includes two sub-committees working on education for the public and first responders.
