Virginia Office of EMS Bulletin - Summer 2018 Edition - https://goo.gl/Yj1wHS
S. 2830/H.R. 5429, the Supporting and Improving Rural EMS Needs Act (SIREN Act), was introduced by Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Pat Roberts (R-KS) and Representatives Greg Gianforte (R-MT) and David Loebsack (R-IA). The SIREN Act would create a grant program for EMS agencies in rural areas – many of which are at the forefront of the opioid epidemic – to support recruitment, retention, education, and equipment for EMS personnel.
Please send an email to your House representative and Senators using NAEMT's Online Legislative Service and ask them to cosponsor the SIREN Act.
