Key Initiatives The National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians is pleased to share with you our Key Initiatives for 2023 and 2024. We value collaboration, communication, and transparency with the EMS community and our partner organizations. In that spirit, we created shareable infographics about important projects with key takeaways, answers to frequently asked questions and important dates.
