The annual Pennsylvania EMS Conference, now in its 42nd year, is widely known as a reliable source of high-quality EMS continuing education. The event is relied on by hundreds of EMS providers to satisfy certification requirements and to ensure that they remain on the cutting edge of prehospital emergency medicine.
The current COVID-19 pandemic has stressed the emergency services community in ways most never could have predicted, affecting nearly every facet of the industry. Not insignificant is the cancellation or rescheduling of numerous conferences and other educational opportunities. Current social distancing guidelines, travel restrictions, and uncertain timelines have made planning a large, in-person event challenging at best. As coordinators of the PA EMS Conference, the team at PEHSC has made the decision deviate from the traditional conference and transition the event to a virtual format. This change will guarantee that the event will be able to occur, proving an opportunity for the EMS community to receive the valuable education that is so desperately needed.
The conference is still expected to take place on September 2-4, 2020, now from the comfort of your own homes! Coordinators are working on an exciting lineup of speakers and other options that will offer attendees the ultimate convenience in choosing their sessions and viewing them either live, as they occur, or via a recording at a later date.
The coordinators are excited by the possibilities that this new format will provide and cannot wait to share more details as they are finalized!
