Emergency Medical Services for Children
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. Our children are our most precious resource, and as such need to be protected, educated and guided. Within the healthcare community, there are limited resources available to aid in the prevention of accidental injury, the most common cause of mortality and morbidity in the United States among our young. 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.
