About Us

KEMSA was formed in 1996 after members from several EMS factions decided to unite to have a single voice for EMS in Kansas. This voice is heard not only locally and at the state level, but at the national level as KEMSA is an affiliate member of the National Association of EMTs and makes an annual trip to Call on Washington to get our voices heard.

KEMSA is a non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement of EMS in Kansas. KEMSA has members throughout Kansas and in surrounding states at every level of EMS.

KEMSA has always been progressive in regard to services to its members. KEMSA offers the Chronicle magazine published four times a year, this web site, e-newsletters, an annual Conference and Expo, and a group buying program to name just a few benefits. View a list of membership benefits here.

KEMSA is led by a board of directors elected from its membership. KEMSA also has three standing committees: Legislative, Membership & Operations, and Professional Development along with special committees including bylaws, conference planning, nominations/election and awards. In addition, KEMSA has three societies representing distinct facets of EMS - Administrators, Educators, and Billers. Learn more about our societies here
