DES MOINES — The bipartisan Iowa Legislature’s Emergency Medical Services Study Committee completed two days of discussions on the state of emergency medical services in Iowa, and possible improvements.

Legislators are interested in ways to ensure all Iowans have access to high quality, life-saving emergency medical services, regardless of where they live.

A key goal is to better support the volunteers who make up the majority of Iowa’s EMTs.

Legislators pushed to create the committee after Gov. Terry Branstad vetoed legislation that would have created a task force with a similar mission.
