Kentucky EMS for Children

Kentucky EMS for Children Project (EMSC)


The EMSC Program works to decrease pediatric mortality and morbidity due to severe illness or injury by enhancing pediatric emergency care services throughout the state. It does this by building partnerships across the continuum of emergency care, offering special programs and training opportunities, and through policy development.


A Federal EMSC grant program, jointly administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration's Maternal and Child Health Bureau and the Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, supports state and local action.
