     EMSC Mission Statement
The EMSC Program is designed to reduce child and
  youth mortality and morbidity resulting from
  severe illness or trauma. It aims to:
     1. Ensure that state-of-the-art emergency medical care for
     the ill or injured child and adolescent is available when
     needed.
     2. Ensure that pediatric services are well integrated into the
     existing state emergency medical services (EMS) system and
     backed by optimal resources.
     3. Ensure that the entire spectrum of emergency services,
     including primary prevention of illness and injury, acute care
     and rehabilitation, is provided to children and
     adolescents at the same level as adults.

  Letter from the EMSC National Resource Center
