The mission of the Mississippi Emergency Medical Services for Children Program is to prevent and reduce childhood, adolescent, and youth death and disability resulting from illness and injury. Also to provide continued pediatric education to prehospital and hospital professionals to ensure that each child, adolescent and youth injured in Mississippi received the best possible care. The EMS-C program was designed by federal legislation in 1984 for this very reason as issues relating to children's emergency care required attention.
