Indianapolis EMS Member Earns National Advocacy Award
NAEMT recognizes IEMS educator for support of Field EMS Bill
Indianapolis EMS’ Lt. Jason Scheiderer was recently honored with the EMS Field Bill Advocate of the Year Award from the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT). Lt. Scheiderer was one of three awardees from across the nation to be recognized for their volunteer work in support of this legislation. He received his award at NAEMT’s EMS on the Hill Day in Washington, D.C., in March.
H.R. 809, the Field EMS Quality, Innovation and Cost-Effectiveness Improvement Act (a.k.a. the Field EMS Bill), would provide federal support for EMS practitioners, similar to federal support offered to fire and police, as well as make improvements to the EMS industry and practices.
As an advocate for the Field EMS Bill, Lt. Scheiderer secured sponsors for the bill, Indiana Reps. Larry Bucshon and Andre Carson, and gained support from the Indiana EMS Association and the Putnam County Operation Life Agency.
Lt. Scheiderer is an educator in the Indianapolis EMS Education Division and has been in EMS for 12 years.
