EMS Labor Alliance


The Emergency Medical Services Labor Alliance was established over twenty-five years ago as an information sharing network of organized EMS providers across the country. Founding organizations include Detroit EMS, Boston EMS, Cleveland EMS, FDNY-EMS, New Castle County EMS, and Pittsburgh EMS. At the Spring 2009 EMSLA Conference, the Board of Directors unanimously voted to amend the by-laws and allow both private and municipal union EMS workers to join EMSLA.

EMSLA is able to effectively increase communication between stand-alone municipal and private EMS groups globally, to enhance collaborative efforts among these groups, support legislation critical to the needs of Emergency Medical Services, and protect EMT’s and Paramedics around the world.
