Welcome to the Emergency Medical Services for
Children web site...
Illinois EMSC is a
collaborative program between the
Illinois Department of Public Health and
Loyola University Chicago,
aimed at improving pediatric emergency care and disaster
preparedness within our state.
Since 1994, the
Illinois EMSC Advisory Board and several committees along with organizations and individuals
within the EMS, pediatric and emergency management communities have worked to enhance
and integrate pediatric policy development, education, standards, injury prevention
and data initiatives into the Illinois EMS system. The
goal of Illinois EMSC is to ensure that appropriate emergency
medical care is available for ill and injured children at every
point along the continuum of care.
