What We Do

The Illinois EMS Alliance is a growing coalition of EMS providers and stakeholders from across the state that support increased resources and smart reforms for EMS.

Formed in response to the Illinois House EMS Task Force Report, the Alliance is made up of emergency medicine professionals, including EMTs, Fire Chiefs, physicians and EMS representatives from around the state.

The Alliance works to support action on recommendations made in the task force report and helps legislators chart a sustainable path forward for EMS in Illinois.

Recommendations

Based on recommendations from the final report, the bipartisan 24-member House EMS Task Force urged the legislature to:

  • Create a dedicated annual funding stream of $40 million from gambling expansion revenues or other sources to prevent EMS in Illinois from further atrophy.
  • Officially designate EMS as an “essential service” similar to existing designations for Police and Fire services.
  •  Pursue regulatory reforms that would make it easier for EMS agencies to provide optimal care in the current resource-scarce environment.
