One of the missions of VAEMSP is to represent its membership on issues that impact EMS systems, the EMS work environment and EMS Practitioners. In collaboration with the National Association of EMTs (NAEMT), VAEMSP works to support EMS issues on both state and National levels.
One of the advocacy initiatives of NAEMT is the Field EMS Modernization and Innovation Act, also called the EMS Field Bill, which would modernize EMS from the 20th Century model based on transport to an innovative patient-centered 21st Century system.

Virginia's NAEMT Advocacy Coordinator is Allison Knox
