Prehospital Medical Advisory Committee


The Prehospital Medical Advisory Committee is to be the advocate for the local community and its associated EMS catchment area through continuing to augment quality, and suggest evidence based recommendations to our EMS interlocal agency agreement providers in order to optimize emergency medical services.


The primary objective of the PMAC is to maintain and improve the high quality of prehospital care in Washoe County through the evaluation of protocols, resolving conflicts between protocols, quality assurance activities, research, and by making recommendations to the Washoe County District Board of Health, the agencies providing prehospital care and the hospitals providing emergency care.


The PMAC offers a scholarship opportunity to paramedic students enrolled in the REMSA or Truckee Meadows Community College paramedic program.  For more information on this opportunity, please contact the paramedic program coordinator.
