Charleston County EMS Director called to White House

  • Monday, February 10, 2014

Charleston County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Director Don Lundy was invited to attend a meeting of National EMS Leaders to provide input on related topics to representatives from the National Security Council Staff. The meeting took place Friday, Feb. 7, at the White House.

Lundy also serves as President of the National Association of EMTs (NAEMT). He will be meeting with Dr. Richard Hunt, Medical Director for Medical Preparedness Policy for the National Security Council Staff at the White House, and several other national EMS leaders to discuss the current status and future of EMS in the United States.

“It's important that we let our federal partners know the current status of EMS in the United States,” Lundy said. “Having EMS leaders from all over the United States together to discuss operations only helps all of us to improve EMS for every patient, whether it's urban, rural or frontier.”

Charleston County EMS has received numerous awards, including the 2010 National EMS System of the Year. NAEMT is the national leader in creating solutions to the challenges facing EMS practitioners. Their mission is to represent and serve EMS practitioners, including paramedics, emergency medical technicians and emergency medical responders, through advocacy, educational programs and research.
